” Label Robyn Lawley a plus-size model if you want. Or, why not go with our preferred adjective – hot. Introducing the local beauty making a big impression on the international fashion scene.
“I’ve got big hips and a big body. I’m double, triple the size of other models – and I embrace that, I own it ” declares Robyn Lawley.
She also owns an overwhelming sense of ease – a laidback Aussie charm that further sets this internationally recognised 24-year-old apart from her lithe, often uptight, colleagues.
“At 6ft 2, I like to make men sweat a little when I meet them,” she offers as a cheeky aside, a broad smile stretching beneath twinkling green eyes. And sweat they would, Lawley an undeniably powerful presence – as well as one of the most fun models we’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with.
Little wonder interest in the former Sydneysider has led to Vogue covers (that’s right – plural) and a notable 2012 Ralph Lauren campaign.
The recent spotlight comes despite starting out in the industry nine years ago. It was a different time and Lawley was in a very different headspace – compelled to comply with scrawny model stereotypes by starving herself. It lasted six months – before moving to France. “That was game over,” she says, again laughing, “there was just way too much bread and cheese. ” – gq.com.au

She is stunning, but I have to say that I am somewhat surprise by the choice of expression. It seems to say “Hey! What are you doing taking my pic while I’m changing. Get out of here! This is damned private!!”
She is naturally gorgeous. ggrrrroooowwwlll.
