(Shes not really plus size) But here’s PHOTOS: Vogue Australia Publishes First Plus Size Spread Ever
Check out Model Robyn Lawley who was also on the cover of Vogue Italia. She is also, as of their August issue, the first plus size model to ever be featured in Vogue Australia.
Editor in chief Kirstie Clements addressed the shoot in her editor’s letter:
“This is the first time Vogue Australia has shot a larger model and of course now that we have done it, I ask myself why we didn’t do it sooner. But that’s because Robyn is especially gorgeous. I went to the shoot to meet her and was transfixed by her beauty and poise. She is a truly super duper model. When a plus size model first turns up to the studio, she may be an anomaly to a team normally used to working with size 6’s, but once photographer Max Doyle started shooting Robyn, we quickly readjusted our preconceived notions of beauty. She doesn’t actually look plus size to me at all now. I said to a colleague on set later that day, “And men like curves don’t they?” He looked at me like I was an idiot. “Yes Kirsty, we certainly do” was his laconic reply. It’s an interesting conversation – the world of high fashion and fuller-figured women. One that needs to be continued”.
Once again this chick is far from plus size. To be a plus size model you are supposed to be at least a 14 and a 10 + for print. To me it looks as though this model is more like an 8 maybe a 10. But when will Vogue really break ground with a true “Plus size Model” like an 18+ because a size 8-14 is considered “thick or curvy”
