Robyn Lawley Makes History as First ‘Plus-Sized’ Model Featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue is usually a display of ultra-thin women in bikinis. But all that’s about to change, and we couldn’t be happier. Swimsuitsforall has taken out an ad in the publication starring Ashley Graham, plus-sized model and outspoken champion for body diversity. But she won’t be the only plus girl appearing in the annual issue.

Australian model Robyn Lawley has been tapped for the issue, making her the first plus-sized model (she’s a size 10) to grace its pages — in a bikini from her own line, no less. Robyn has been very outspoken in the past about how she’s not actually plus-sized. As she told Clique magazine, “You know, in the beginning I didn’t mind getting called it, I was like, ‘Yay! It’s fine!’ And it’s been a community that’s really represented me well and loved me and really helped me. But I’m not a plus-size person, and I’m a model. I don’t think I need that ‘plus-size’ in front of it.” Still, in the modeling world, she’s bigger than a “straight size” model, which in this topsy-turvy universe makes her plus-sized.

We seem to be in the middle of a plus revolution as more retailers expand stylish size options for larger women. Target just announced the launch of a new plus collection, so it is quite heartening to see Sports Illustrated attempt to throw some support behind the cause. While the move is revolutionary, we can’t help but wonder what would happen if the magazine featured an actual plus-sized woman in a bikini. But, baby steps — and if this is what baby steps look like, we can’t wait for SI to take a few more.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Is Coming

American menswear designers finally have a home court stage to show their collections. The CFDA has successfully organized a men’s fashion week to take place this summer in New York City. Previously, American menswear designers were forced to wait until September to show their collections after buyers had already put in orders or stage shows abroad. 

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is slated for July 13 to July 16 (just around Men’s Market Week) and will feature designers Rag & Bone, Public School, Timo Weiland, Patrik Ervell, Michael Kors and Duckie Brown, to name a few. Amazon, Shinola and DreamWorks are among the sponsors for the event which will take place at SoHo’s Skylight Clarkson Sq , a 60,000-square-foot space.

CFDA CEO Steven Kolb is hoping that the event grows in time. London Collections: Men has only been around for about two years and it’s proved to be quite a success. Hopefully, American designers will enjoy the same results. 

It looks like July is going to be even busier than we thought! We can’t wait to see what the fellas churn out now that they have their very own stage.

Hailey Baldwin Is Topshop’s New Face of Denim

Topshop has announced rising model Hailey Baldwin as the face of its latest denim campaign, and we couldn’t be more excited. Most of us Brits know her as that girl Kendall Jenner is constantly pictured with, but she’s actually the model daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, who’s already beginning to make waves in the fashion world.

Hailey is no stranger to Topshop, either. Cast your minds back to the Spring 2015 show at London Fashion Week last September, where she was one of the models chosen to walk the runway alongside Cara Delevingne, Lily Donaldson and Jourdan Dunn. Quite the modelling debut, right?

Topshop’s latest denim campaign is all about helping you track down the perfect pair of jeans, which is often quite the task for us mere mortals. It’s apparently not so difficult if you’re Hailey, who’s showing us a whole range of her favourite fits, from spray-on skinnies to androgynous. (more…)

Best #TBT Ever: Saved by the Bell Returns for 8 Glorious Minutes with Jimmy Fallon

Sometimes, dreams really do come true. In 2009, Jimmy Fallon started an online petition to get the Saved by the Bell cast back together. Sure, some of the cast members have stopped by his show since then, but after five years we were beginning to lose hope that Jimmy could get the whole gang to reunite. But last night, it happened. 

Jimmy joined Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Jessie Spano and Kelly Kapowski as a student at Bayside for eight glorious minutes of 90s-tastic nostalgia. Even Mr. Belding made an appearance. We laughed. We cried. We screamed “ZACK ATTACK!” at our TV screens, and we know you will, too.

Lisa and Screech are sadly absent, but hey, we’ll take what we can get, especially when it’s this much fun. Go ahead and peep the video above, and then try to tell us today isn’t the best #ThrowbackThursday ever.
