As I’m getting ready to return to work, feeling strong and in the near of myself, I want to be honest with you, in this day and age where we seemingly share everything, I need some time, physically and emotionally. However, I want the truth known. Almost 2 months ago I had an accident. There is a reason that I was public about my lupus and aps diagnosis from the beginning, a life long incurable (for now) state, I knew not what I, or am I still in for. I unfortunately had a seizure on my stairs, I fell from more than 7ft and landed on my face. I suppose it is ironic that I am a model, but I am grateful that I did not break my neck. I’ve managed to make the circle with that of gratitude and happiness. I could, had it with my daughter, for example, or would I be in a wheelchair, or not breathing. With fashion week coming soon, I wanted to acknowledge my new lighting bolt scar on my forehead (aka official wizard now ?♀️) lip and chin. If the scars fade, a apart of me wants nothing to do with them and a part of me wants to embrace them. They make us who we are. Plus wearing daily make-up on my face is something I cannot do. Life is not all rainbows. I have found the strength the past few months the following people who are courageous to share their physical and emotional ongoing fighting. Thank you @elly.mayday (fighting ovarian cancer) thank you @chelseabonner (camps with fibromyalgia) thank you @_indianrosee & @selenagomez (fellow lupus warriors) thank you. For everyone who’s going through something I regret for the pain you have endured. You are always welcome to DM questions about SLE (lupus) or APS. Thanks to the staff of the hospital and the doctors were quick to treat me. Thank you to my love of my life save me. Sending love and positive vibes. You can always follow @lupusorg or @lupusla to help support lupus research. This picture is from the hospital a few months ago and one from a week ago. ?? Peace Robyn
“So I’m ready to get back to work, feeling strong and in the near of myself, I want to be honest with you, in this day and age where we seemingly share everything, I need some time, physically and emotionally,” the model wrote for the introduction of a long-term explanation of her accident, her followers. She added that she is also grateful that she not break her neck and it was not that her 3-year-old daughter at the time of the incident.
The model then joked that she was a lightning bolt scar on her forehead as the fictional character of Harry Potter, but said that she would not be wearing makeup to cover her scars.
“When the scars fade, a apart of me wants nothing to do with them and a part of me wants to embrace them. They make us who we are. Plus wearing daily make-up on my face is something I cannot do,” Lawley wrote.
“Life is not all rainbows. I have found the strength the past few months the following people who are courageous to share their physical and emotional ongoing fighting,” she continued.
Prior to her accident in June, Lawley spoke to Fox News about her 2015 pregnancy with her daughter and how she is worried about getting her famous figure back after the birth.

I had an absolute ball filming of this commercial, my lil monkey had a lot of fun too. Motherhood has changed me in so many ways, can be like a hurricane of NEW and different, and sometimes it feels like the most natural beautiful thing. My daughter gives me life and the beauty of seeing everything for the ‘first time’. She is my everything. ?? I have respect for my own Mom (Aussie) in a whole new way!!! Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday!! @lordandtaylor #CelebrateEveryMom ❤?❤ thanks to @tntdirectors @sir_timothydouglas @kaylamichelehair @nikimnray
“My body is my work,” she explained at the time. “I was very nervous about how [the industry] was going to respond to my body and how much it would change after having a baby. And that’s what happened. It has changed drastically. I realized that I could hide for the rest of the world or just embrace it, because this happens to everyone. And that is what I did.”
So after embracing her changing body, Lawley realized that there was nothing, so landing her gigs in the fashion world.
“There is no point in holding yourself back or not wear a bikini, because you’re afraid to be seen on the beach,” she said. “No-one is watching and no one cares that much. Even if they did, that is their problem. Just have fun. You only have a short life. Don’t waste it on thinking that people are going to look at you in the corner. I think we waste too much time to think about it.”
