Robyn Lawley Becomes The First Plus Size Ralph Lauren Model
In the world of modeling where thin is the only way to go, model Robyn Lawley is definitely bucking the trend. She was recently hired as the first plus sized model ever to front a campaign for clothing designer Ralph Lauren.
So kudos to Ralph Lauren for opening the doors to plus sized models but it brings up a few very interesting questions about the future of modeling. Is this a big step forward for modeling in general? Are fashion houses starting to embrace what real women look like or is this just a reaction to the recent controversy over underage, underweight models?
It also makes me wonder if this girl really is “plus sized” and whether or not its a good idea for an industry to call a woman who simply has curves a thinly veiled term for “overweight”.
