Robyn Lawley is adamant that she “doesn’t care” about walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
The model has previously spoken out about her dislike for the U.S. lingerie brand, and is particularly outraged by its reluctance to feature a diverse range of body types during its annual catwalk extravaganza.
Robyn was so incensed that she recently started a petition demanding that Victoria’s Secret change its ways, and has now insisted that she has no interest in teaming up with the label professionally.
“I don’t really care either way. I would rather they use some other curvy girls,” she said during an interview on Australian programme The Morning Show. “I’m not doing this for myself, I’m doing this for my daughter’s sake. I could not care less about walking for them, not anymore. But I would love to see some curvy bodies on there.”
Upon announcing her petition, Robyn also took to Instagram to “call for a complete boycott of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.”
However, further on in her interview, she insisted that her initiative was nothing personal against the girls walking this year’s runway, with models cast in the show including Winnie Harlow, Leomie Anderson, and Victoria’s Secret veteran Candice Swanepoel.
“I am sick and tired of seeing the same body type. I’m not asking (people) to boycott the girls, I just want diversity to be added. I want inclusivity, (to) include a few other sizes,” the 29-year-old explained.
The Australian fashion star reasoned that including a range of body types would be a surefire way to improve body confidence and self-love in women around the world, and also shared that she had once previously auditioned for a role in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and found it to be a negative experience.
“I felt very heavily criticised for my body back then,” she complained.
