Playboy Magazine Makes Waves After Featuring a Plus-Size Model

For decades, magazine has made a name for itself by featuring beautiful women on its covers and inside its pages. The stereotypical Playboy model is blonde, a size two, and has Pamela Anderson-esque breasts. But over the last several years, the magazine has changed directions and become more inclusive in the types of models they feature. In October, they featured their first ever transgender model— Ines Rau. And now, Playboy has done it again— by featuring beautiful up and coming plus-size model Molly Constable in one of its spreads.

Discovered. In 2012, 22-year-old Molly Constable was discovered via Instagram and has since signed to a modeling agency as well as having been featured in multiple fashion magazines and publications.

Magazine. Most recently, Molly was featured in Playboy magazine. The shoot revolves around a makeup-free Molly, posing on a beautiful farm in upstate New York. The shoot has an old-school vibe to it, with Molly being styled in vintage sunglasses, clothing, and hairstyles.

Scared. “When my agents told me I was going to shoot for them at first I was a little wary because of history of the magazine. But when I found out that Heather Hazzan was shooting it, my nerves completely disappeared. We have shot together before, and they are some of my favorite images,” Molly told Cosmopolitan.

Critics. Molly, who is a size 14, says she’s been criticized in the past during photo shoots from makeup artists and hair stylists who are both shocked and bothered that Molly isn’t a size two. But the shoot for Playboy was different than the rest.

Size. “I wish we could all be called models and move on to more important subjects. Size is not an issue — we all do the same job,” says Molly, as reported by Cosmopolitan.

Stereotypes. Despite being comfortable in her own body, Molly says it doesn’t stop people from sharing their opinions with her. Even professionals don’t hesitate to point out that she’s not a traditionally stereotypical model, but Molly and her agency, MiLK Model Management, are looking to change those stereotypes.

Happy. “I’ve shown up on set for a big shoot, and the stylist has looked me up and down and walked away to speak to the art director … which I assume she didn’t do her research and must’ve forgotten I wasn’t a size 2. I want to be able to do what I love and not have it to do with size but just the fact that I am doing what I love,” says Molly, as reported by Cosmopolitan.

Photos. Those who know and have worked with Molly have had nothing but good things to say about her. The model even posts unedited photos of herself on Instagram, something not a lot of models tend to do.

Success. “Molly has been an editorial darling from the beginning of her career, having shot with [designer] Tom Ford for one of her first shoots. Molly is indeed a force to be reckoned with and the industry is taking notice. We are thrilled by all of her successes,” said a representative for Molly, as reported by Fox News.

Household name. Molly’s style has been dubbed “iconic” and she’s expected to become a household name within the next year or so. She’s also changing the fashion industry and the way it’s typically perceived.

Unique. “Molly is truly unique as she has such an editorial look and has such iconic curves,. Molly is getting the whole industry to wake up and see that there is a place for curvier models in high-fashion magazines and campaigns, so she is most definitely one to watch,” says Anna Shillinglaw of Milk Management, as reported by Fox News.

Bombshell. Molly has also been named rising model to watch by Vogue magazine, meaning we can undoubtedly expect nothing but good things from the stunning bombshell.

Changes. Ever since the late Hugh Hefner’s son Cooper Hefner took over the reigns of the magazine, we’ve seen huge changes in the way things have been going. The younger Hefner, who is only 26, says he hopes the magazine will resonate more with a younger audience.

Generation. “Creating something that resonates with my generation and the generation that comes after mine is how I’ll measure my accomplishments,” said Hefner, as reported by Fox News.
