We never devote enough attention to the remarkable and ongoing successes of the plus-size modelling industry in Australia. Here, for example, are several news items from Sydney's Bella Models agency that deserve considerable attention.

First, one of the agency's shining stars, Solveig Walking--whose soft, rounded facial features are among the most attractive in the entire industry--has just shot her second campaign for New Zealand's Sara catalogue, along with Ljubenka.

Both models are gorgeous (with the customary caveat that one wishes they were more genuinely full-figured), and the Sara catalogue boasts some of the best commercial photography on any continent.

And now, for a bit of truly extraordinary news, former British plus-size model Lorna Roberts, who made an indelible impression on the public with her daring editorial work in Yes! magazine (Britain's short-lived precursor to Mode), and who is still featured on our Timeless Beauty page, has now moved to Australia, and is represented by Bella Models.

In addition to her modelling work, Ms. Roberts famously appeared as the seductive teacher in a music video titled "What I go to School For," by a British boy-band sensation named "Busted." This was considered quite a breakthrough for plus-size beauty, inasmuch as it presented this visibly curvaceous model as the forbidden object of every young lad's most sinful desires:

Ms. Roberts now wears her hair longer, which is a very becoming look for her.

After her stellar career in England, we certainly hope that her career will thrive in the colonies, under the care of Chelsea and the wonderful Bella Models team.
