H&M Campaign Starring Plus Sized Model!

21 May

In real life 24-year-old model, Jennie Runk is average sized, but in the modeling world, she’s considered plus sized.  The 5’10”  size 12/14 beauty is the star of H&M’s Summer swimwear campaign- the first for a plus sized model.  H&M does have a plus sized collection and uses plus sized models but they have never gone into bathing suit territory with anybody larger than a size 6.  Turns out- people like it and they like it a lot!!!! There has been a positive outpouring of support in regards to this latest campaign and that’s a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.  Women come in all shapes sizes and it’s great seeing representation for all of us. Below are some images from the campaign.

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.
