A provocative billboard for an upcoming photo exhibition called "Size Does Matter" has gone up in New York City.

Photographed by Kenneth Willardt, the first large-scale preview shows Australian plus-size model Robyn Lawley (represented by Wilhelmina Models) reclining nude, the classic art pose updated with high-gloss hair and vampy makeup. The model poses wearing nothing but black stilettos as bunnies scale her naked body, conveniently concealing Lawley's private parts. 

Willardt has worked extensively in the fashion and beauty industries, notably as a campaign photographer for Maybelline and L'Oreal, where he produced campaigns featuring top stars like Beyonce and Gwen Stefani

Lawley, a Ralph Lauren campaign model, first launched her career when she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia (for the publication's famous plus-size issue).

The exhibition opens on November 8 at 558 Gallery on West 21st Street in Chelsea, with a party hosted by Vs. magazine.

Catherine McNeil Smoulders in Kookaï for Harper’s Bazaar Australia

catherine-mcneil-kane-skennar-harpers-bazaar-australia-november-2013-3Another day, another case of Catherine McNeil being a smouldering glamazon. This time it’s for Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s November 2013 issue, in which she models the new Kookaï collection and inadvertently steals the thunder of cover girl and Australia’s Next Top Winner Melissa Juratowich.

As the new face of Kookaï, a role she usurped from fellow Australian model Nicole Trunfio, Catherine models moodier pieces of the brand’s new summer collection, which she recently shot the campaign for in Tulum and Mérida.

The Summer 2014 collection marks a new high-fashion direction for the brand, incorporating bold Aztec prints and glamazon skirts with risqué hem lengths. Though for those of us not so generously endowed in the leg length department, they’re probably still daytime-appropriate. There’s also plenty of leather and black, such as the mesh tank, cut-out swimsuit and hoochie chic dress featured in the shoot, which all reek of McNeil’s own personal style.

In the accompanying interview, she talks about her stellar season on the international Spring 2014 runways, where she walked a total of 22 shows, and of her two-year hiatus from modeling. But it’s free from any juicy revelations. “I did nothing. It was great. I moved to London and hung out,” she says, adding, “I’m a bit of a nerd and a homebody.” Well, hey, if we had Miles Langford at home we’d probably stay in pretty frequently too.

Jeremy Laing Spring 2014 at The ShOws

Marking the unofficial start of World Mastercard Fashion Week, The ShOws recently held court as a rare chance to catch Canadian designers who’ve moved on to bigger ponds. This week’s lineup included a buzzy guest list of such icons as Bellavance, Calla Haynes, Vancouver native Steven Tai and Toronto’s own Jeremy Laing, who really had it going on for Spring/Summer 2014.

Claiming notes of “90s summertime reminiscences,” Laing embraced what he calls a “street-but-sweet R&B influence” that included tone neon jumpsuits, ponchos and Bermuda shorts for spring. Colourful swirly prints engulfed billowing blouses and maxi dresses, while a key palette of pink, tangerine and baby blues were mashed together like a sickly sweet candy-store binge.

Some looks screamed athletic apparel to me, while the long blue outerwear kind of gives off a hospital gown (or even prion jumpsuit) vibe, amiright? Elle Canada has gone so far as saying Laing’s “Spring 2014 line felt disjointed, veering from structured, bodycon pinstriped numbers to Dexter-style raincoats in one fell swoop.” Hmmm…

Jeremy Laing 1

The raincoats can only be described as a “Hell no” and I’ll also agree with Elle’s bodycon criticism – will this budget trend ever leave? Meanwhile, some of the more urban-influenced garbs simply looked like they’d been jacked from Rihanna’s closet, but one thing that was both pretty and wearable was the draped, fan-printed dresses, featuring a kaleidoscope of colour reminiscent of the NBC logo. Both dewy and fresh, I think this print was probably collaborator Julia Dault’s work – truly the star of the show – while I was also kind of digging the earthy tones of the geometric maxis (also her fabric design).
