She is fierce, unapologetic and exudes confidence. There are so many reasons to love Ashley Graham, our recent
Modelling industry is very harsh and you have to fit a strictly defined look to be able to make it. However, from time to time, someone shows up and shakes things up. Lately that’s been Ashley Graham, a super model with curves who is not afraid of being real.
Ashley’s been modelling since she was 13, doing various campaigns for international brands. What she’s most famous for is her body activism work and the fact that she overcomes barriers that plus size models often face. Graham graced the cover of Sports Illustrated making history as the first plus size model to be featured. She said: “It’s great that Sports Illustrated showed that every woman can look amazing in a bikini,” she continued. “No one should be labeled by their body size at all.”
Ashley is using her fame to be a role model for girls of all different sizes, teaching them to accept their bodies and be confident in their own skin. When she’s not working on different campaigns and photo shoots, the model bombshell is busy designing swimsuits and lingerie for curvy women. She is also a judge in a popular TV show America’s Next Model. That is where I got to fall in love with her as I discovered more about her and how amazing she is, not just as a model, but as a person too. We continue being inspired by Ashley and look forward to see what the future brings for her.
