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.
