"I'm sure I'll find out through the grapevine if any curvier than their usual model" is used for this year's Victoria's Secret show, Lawley wrote, adding, "I'm a little hopeful but not at all at the same time."
“I still want designers to cast more sizes and not segregate sizing, and for agents to step up and not segregate sizing. I want to see all sizes, races, ethnicities, ages, everything."
Robyn Lawley, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue star and the first plus-size model to be shot for Australian Vogue, demonstrated that angles can change everything when she posted two selfies to her Instagram on Thursday. Lawley spoke out to Sports Illustrated calling the one-size-fits-all body-image standard “stupid” and talking about how she intends to teach her daughter Ripley, to love her body.
Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue may not exactly be ahead of the curve when it comes to representing body diversity, but late is better than never. On Tuesday, plus-size model Ashley Graham was announced as one of the 2016 issue’s five ‘rookies’—to be voted on by the public in an upcoming poll.
Back in February, Robyn Lawley made headlines for being the first plus-sized model to grace the pages of Sports Illustrated. Lawley goes on to say how hurt she was by the fabricated story, concerned that the stress could have an effect on her unborn baby. Knowing that she couldn’t erase what was published, she decided to respond by posting a picture to proudly display her stretch marks.
