Robyn Lawley is featured in a 10 page fashion editorial in the September issue of Vogue Australia. Lawley, a top Australian plus model, also covered the June 2011 issue of Vogue Italia with plus models Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine. Marquita Pring also appeared in a sizzling editorial with the cover models.
The September Australian editorial will be the first fashion editorial featuring a plus size model in the magazine’s 52 year history and it doesn’t disappoint. Robyn also covered Elle France’s April 2011 issue. Busy, busy!!!
We at plusmodelstoday.com think that this editorial will offer rock solid proof that plus size models can deliver top quality editorial work that can and will compete “straight size” models, if there was ever any doubt. Lawley delivers big time.

As reported to WWD and widely across the Net, Marquita Pring reveals that she sometimes uses padding to accentuate her already gorgeous shape.
She told WWD: ‘Some [clients] like you much smaller, [U.S.] size 10, size 8. Some people would prefer a 14 or 16. So for me, I’m right in the middle at a sort of small 14, high 12. So I pad sometimes since I’ve got clients who would prefer a solid 14 or 16.
Reluctantly she said:
‘I don’t know if we should reveal this secret! They’re pieces of foam. So I just lay them flat on each hip underneath [hosiery]. They’re like a solid inch and a half thick… [and] make you seem all around wider.’
‘From the side you look kind of weird – and it feels weird. Like every now and then my arm gets caught on it and I’m like, wait, this isn’t me. But it’s better for me because I can still be healthy and work out and have the body I want. It’s a little bit of model magic.’
