Bella Beauty's Vogue Italia Cover

Saturday, June 4, 2011


Move over Abbey Lee, Myf and Samantha Harris, Robyn Lawley is the Australian model everyone's talking about at the moment and this incredible cover is the reason why.  Robyn (far right) features with two other size 14 models, Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine, on the cover of Vogue Italia's June issue shot by the legendary Steven Meisel and in two beautiful editorials inside the issue. 

This really is quite a coup for Robyn, gracing the cover of one of the world's most prestigious fashion magazines and being shot by one of the biggest names in fashion photography.  Not just for the fact that Robyn is Australian, but also because she is technically a plus size model.  The last time a plus size model was featured on the cover of Vogue Italia was over 11 years ago and was the stunning Sophie Dahl.

While fashion has been slow to embrace curvier girls, as we all know the tide has been turning for a while now and I think it's a wonderful thing.  Beauty and glamour come in all shapes and sizes and fashion needs to represent that more honestly.  Robyn is a strikingly beautiful girl and I've featured a gorgeous shoot of hers, inspired by 'The Notebook', on my blog earlier in the year here.  She is represented by Bella Models in Australia who specialise in pretty plus size girls.  The fact that the agency is doing really well and is so successful is definitely a positive thing for the modeling industry.

Congratulations Robyn, you look absolutely amazing in your Vogue Italia shoots, I hope it leads to even more exciting opportunities for you.
