Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Lands The Cover Of French Revue de Modes

Reblogged from - By Ashley Cardiff

We first heard about plus-size model Robyn Lawley when she landed Italian Vogue‘s lovely cover and accompanying Steven Klein-shot editorial, “Belle vere,” alongside Candice Huffine, Tara-Lynn, and Marquita Pring. Now Lawley has ventured further into top model territory by landing one of the 14 French Revue de Modes Fall 2011 covers. What’s exciting about her star spot is that the covers feature otherwise straight size ladies like Marloes Horst and Lisanne de Jong, while Lawley’s is just thrown in amongst the rest, looking glamorous in John Galliano and lacking any self-congratulartory headlines about how they’ve added a plus girl. They were shot by Thierry le Gouès. Now, we just can’t wait for the day when we don’t have to mention it like it’s a big deal!

Allman Brown – Rivers (feat. Robyn Sherwell)

Rivers is the new single from British singer/songwriter Allman Brown and the truth is that it doesn’t really need special introductions. Suffice to say that it’s a wonderful, bewitching song which features the amazing Robyn Sherwell (who’s also the co-authoress) on vocals and it was produced by Mt. Wolf‘s Bassi Fox. It should be enough, right?

Speaking with blahblahscience about the track, Brown states: “Rivers is a song about nature. It’s power; it’s intimacy and how it lives in our senses. It was the perfect song to collaborate with...

Every year, there’s a performer who stands out that really makes you proud to be an American, a North American, a Western Hemispherean, or simply a human being.

Each year, since the festival’s inception in 2005, there’s one standout Folk Fest performer or exhibitor that gets everyone talking. Sometimes it’s an instrumentalist, sometimes it’s a dance troupe. My favorite part of the Folk Fest is the Folklife part, where makers show you how they make the tangible stuff–chairs, blankets, salt, masks. And those are just the demonstrations you’ll see this year!

I spent an hour or so thinking back on my favorite...

It’s inevitable, guys: It’s getting cold out there. Reason enough to keep your body moving and join likeminded people in crowded places for a happy gettogether, right? Why not doing so while listening to some delicious Nordic tunes in the upcoming, next two episodes of the Ja Ja Ja Club Nights this November. Once again NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION teams up with FluxFM to bring you the finest new music from the North. November the 11th at Hamburg’s Molotow and one day later at the Fluxbau in Berlin. And here’s what awaits you.

I guess I sound especially bloodthirsty the way I always advocate ultra-harsh sentences for politicians caught breaking the law. There's a reason for that, of course. Someone given a position of trust who abuses it should, of course, be held to a high standard. But there's more. History shows that if a politician gets away from criminal behavior, it encourages other politicians to give it a try. Saying, "well he served the community (or his state or country) so well, we should go easy on him," is the opposite of what we should be doing as a society. This special...

Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique have shared a photoessay and video short on Yours Truly honoring the Swedish singer’s longtime producer Christian Falk, who died last summer at 52. Robyn and keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt recall recording their EP together and the experience of losing their friend and artistic inspiration.

“Losing him — there’s nothing good about it,” Robyn wrote in the essay. “Sometimes you really want to find reasons. You want to say that there’s a reason for everything. I don’t think that there’s any reason at all in the world why — when someone gets sick like that...

Going Inbox #65

Everyday tons of emails reach (keep ’em going!). Every week we would like to cover at least 3/4 of the awesome music we get there, but, even at our most productive, we still can’t. So, we decided to start a new regular column that will feature the best tracks we received by email but we haven’t had the chance to feature during the week. Enjoy.
