According to my sources (AKA, the Internet) the average American woman wears a size 12. Whether you see that as a good or bad thing, it’s undeniable that this common size is very uncommon in the world of fashion. But recently models like Crystal Renn have been getting huge amounts of attention for landing big-name campaigns while still being “plus size.” And now one size 12 woman is quickly rising to the top of the modeling ranks. Meet the beautiful plus size model Robyn Lawley!
Gorgeous! Lawley is also Ralph Lauren’s first plus-size model. And she has a very healthy attitude towards her body. When asked how much she weighed, Lawley simply responded, “Well, I’m a size twelve, and I think weight doesn’t really matter.” As if that comment doesn’t make her awesome enough, she also runs a yummy-looking food blog:
Hopefully the rise of models like Robyn and Crystal Renn are an indication that the fashion world is becoming more open-minded. I can’t wait to see what campaigns both women star in next! Head on over to the source to see even more shots of Lawley. [via Buzzfeed]
