Women for Women : Robyn Lawley, size 12, will appear in Sports Illustrated in a bikini from her own line

Robyn Lawley, size 12, will appear in Sports Illustrated in a bikini from her own line.

Model Robyn Lawley was awake early Thursday morning, eagerly anticipating a career-defining moment: “I’m so excited, I’m dying — I’m dying!”

That’s because Sports Illustrated was announcing Lawley’s appearance in the magazine’s highly anticipated swimsuit edition. And while Lawley’s bikini-clad figure seems like a natural fit, her inclusion is historic. As a U.S. size 12, she’s the curviest model to ever appear in the edition, and she’s doing it while wearing a bikini from her own swimwear line. (Although the bikini in the above photo is by Montce Swim.)

While a U.S. size 12 would typically qualify as plus-size in the fashion industry — even though the average American woman is a size 14 — Lawley doesn’t like to focus on labels.

“I don’t know if I consider myself as a plus-size model or not,” Lawley, who is represented by Wilhelmina Models, says. “I just consider myself a model because I’m trying to help women in general accept their bodies. ”

There’s no shortage of Yummy Mummys in Hollywood who have figured out celebrity plus motherhood plus a clever marketing campaign for a family-centric product can equal the beginnings of a business outside of Tinseltown that may have a longer shelf life than the average movie career. From the highfalutin recommendations of Gwyneth Paltrow on her website Goop ($900 throw anyone?) to the train wreck reality television franchise that is Tori Spelling’s life, it seems that virtually every actress in every strata of the entertainment business is developing their personal brand around their experiences as a mother.

And then there’s Jessica Alba.

Women for Women : A new film from HelloFlo – which describes itself as a ‘tampon subscription service’

HelloFlo tampons throws a party for periods

This is verging on genius: a new film from HelloFlo – which describes itself as a ‘tampon subscription service’ – promoting (I was going to say plugging) its Period Starter Kit.

No agency involved as far as I can see and this would probably never have come out of an agency. The writer/directors were Jamie T. McCelland and Pete Marquis. Thanks to 'More about advertising'
