“Taking on the fashion world and blazing a trail for curvy women”
“Meet the Aussie model who made peace with her body and hit the big time”
A turning point in Robyn’s career was Vogue Australia’s decision to shoot her as the first plus size model to appear in an editorial specifically produced for Vogue Australia in the magazine’s 52 year history. The Vogue Australia’s Editor-in-Chief, Kirstie Clements, noted: “This is the first time Vogue Australia has shot a larger model and, of course, now that we have done it, I ask myself why we didn’t do it sooner. But that’s because Robyn is especially gorgeous. I went to the shoot to meet her and was transfixed by her beauty and poise. She is a truly super- duper model. When a plus-size model first turns up to the studio, she may be an anomaly to a team normally used to working with size-6’s, but once photographer Max Doyle started shooting Robyn, we quickly readjusted our preconceived notions of beauty. She doesn’t actually look plus size to me at all now.”
