Australian model Robyn Lawley is currently gracing the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit for 2017. Here’s her story:
Born: June 13, 1989 in Garraween, New South Wales to Chris and Janne Lawley.
She attended Macarthur Girls High School and went to see a mainstream agency when she was just 15 years old. They were ready to sign her, she reluctantly decline because she didn’t feel ready.
After taking a year off of modeling, she returned to do straight size modeling for another year.
She found it wasn’t worth the effort to maintain the size 8 (or under) requirements. So she signed with Bella Model Management, a “plus size” modeling agency in Australia when she was 18.
Robyn Lawley’s career has since improved since signing with Bella Models. Her first magazine shoot was for Dolly in 2006.
Since then, she has been on the covers of high-end fashion magazine Frence Elle and French Marie Claire.
Her most notable cover was for the June 2011 issue of vogue Italia along with other plus sized models, Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine.
Lawley has walked runways around the world most notably in a one-model show for OneStopPlus for Fashion Week, streamed on to a New York Times Square moving billboard, Elena Miro in Milan Fashion Week.
Lawley has also appeared in advertising for mainstream brands such as Calezdonia’s Summer 2012 campaign photographed by Raphael Mazzucco and Boux Avenue lingerie.
In early 2015, Robyn Lawley became a Sports Illustrated “Rookie”, making her the first “plus-size” model to be featured in the magazine’s annual Swimsuit Issue. The assistant managing editor of Sports Illustrated had stated that Lawley” had been on her radar for years and is being highlighted as a model rather than as a “plus size” model.
