If you clicked on a "First Plus-Size Model in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue"-type headline yesterday and felt sorely disappointed to learn that Ashley Graham isn't in the magazine editorially—she's in an ad—you'll like this: Robyn Lawley just announced that she's an official SI Rookie.

Lawley, who is Australian and also the designer of a line of ace swimwear that fits sizes 10 and up, will appear alongside women such as Erin Heatherton, Ashley Smith, and Emily DiDonato. The sweetest part of the whole deal, besides the fact that it actually, historically happened? SI isn't treating her differently from the other girls at all. 

More photos and Lawley's behind-the-scenes video right this way.
