Model Robyn Lawley Promotes Healthy Body Image

12 Aug

Meet Robyn Lawley, a gorgeous 6’2″ Australian beauty who is taking the modeling world by storm.   Lawley has been featured in countless magazines including Elle and Vogue and made history becoming the first plus sized model to pose for Ralph Lauren.  The 23-year-old was an instant inspiration for girls around the world when she was featured on last years July cover of Vogue Italia with fellow plus sized models Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine.  Lawley was also recently named the new face of UK lingerie brand Boux Avenue.    …..If you’re still looking for the “plus sized” model , the pictures below are correct, like buxom beauties who came before her i.e. Crystal Renn and Marilyn Monroe, Lawley is equivalent to an american size 12 which is quite a common size but considered plus sized in the modeling world. Lawley though doesn’t think of herself as “plus-sized”, she prefers to use the term “normal sized” and is an activist supporting healthy body image, particularly for young girls with low self-­esteem, and also has a food blog called Robyn Lawley Eats.  Bravo to beauty in all forms.

My Favorite Fall Campaigns!

23 Jul

Fall 2012 ad campaigns have arrived!   Twice a year(Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter) our favorite fashion houses sum up their collections and ideas with images that are targeted to fashionistas around the world.  I usually have a favorite or two but not this time, it was actually a chore narrowing it down to my top five!  I think you’ll agree that these are some amazing images…….

 

 

Louis Vuitton: Love the enchanting 1920’s “Louis Vuitton express” feel. Shot by Steven Meisel.

Jean Paul Gaultier: Karlie Kloss looks gorgeous in these street inspired ads complete with old scaffolding and graffiti in the background. Shot by Willy Vandeperre.

Vera Wang: Simply beautiful, these ethereal ads literally look like a dream. Shot by Carter Smith.

Edun: I love the creative images of the models as well as the use of a beautiful white owl and butterflies which are all indigenous to Africa where the brand  produces most of it’s clothing, supporting local factories.  This is the first ever campaign for the brand. Shot by Ryan McGinley.

Mulberry: My absolute favorite!  The whimsical ‘where the wild things are’ themed ads are perfection. Shot by Tim Walker.

okay okay I have one more, lets call it the honorable mention……

H&M:  I love how simple yet stunning this campaign is, featuring Lana Del Ray the retro vibe is in full swing.  Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde.

Kerry Washington goes glam in a vintage inspired editorial for Vogue Italia’s July issue.  The shoot included poodles, vintage clothes and shag carpets!  The actress looked nothing less than perfect in the shoot  which was very reminiscent of Jackie O and 1960’s Diana Ross, LOVE IT!
