Who is Robyn Lawley?
Robyn is an Australian model and actress who is most famous for her cover of Vogue Italia’s June 2011 issue, and the first plus-size model to be shot for Australian Vogue. Robyn was also the first Australian plus-size model to be on the cover of Madison, an Australian Fashion magazine and has shot countless editorials for magazines around the world such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Look, Mode, Marie Claire, and Elle magazines to name a few.
Her swimwear collection made up of bikinis and bathing suits in the United States sizes eight through eighteen, first arrived in stores in late 2013. Robyn has worked with world-renown photographers including Lee Broomfield, Michel Haddi, Thierry Le Goues, Raphael Mazzucco and Steven Meisel and is also the first plus-size model to appear in a campaign for Ralph Lauren.
She is an actress, known for Four Christmases and a Wedding (2017), Celebrity Family Feud (2008) and Have You Been Paying Attention? (2013).
Her Early Life
Robyn Lawley was born on June 13, 1989, in Girraween, New South Wales, Australia to Chris and Janne Lawley, and she grew up with two older sisters.
When she was eighteen years old, Robyn signed a plus-size modeling contract with the Bella Models management company when she was 18 years of age. But a turning point in her career was Vogue Australia’s decision to shoot her as the first plus-size model to appear in an editorial specifically produced for Vogue Australia in the magazine’s 52-year history.
Kirstie Clements, the editor-in-chief, said about the decision: “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.”
