Popular Catwalk Model Karolin Wolter Switches to Plus-Size Modeling

Wolter in the October 2010 issue of Vogue Japan.

After three years of successful runway modeling, Wolter made the switch from Ford's editorial division to its plus-size board this week. The 20-year-old was once tipped to become the next big thing, with catwalk bookings for Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and Yves Saint Laurent; she also starred in campaigns for Missoni and Gianfranco Ferre. But this is not the first time a model has made the shift. Crystal Renn, Robyn Lawley, and Alyona Osmanova all started their careers as straight-size models. Wolter's agent, Gary Dakin at Ford+, tell us she's "absolutely thrilled about the move."
