5 Times Ashley Graham Changed What It Means To Be A Model

A little cellulite never hurt nobody.. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called ‘ugly’.”

Ashley Graham

Supermodel Ashley Graham has become a voice for all curvy and plus size women. The model is not only killing it on magazine covers such as Vogue and Elle, but also using her talents to speak against society’s beauty standards.

Not to mention Graham was the first plus size model to ever grace the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine. Graham started modeling in 2001 and has been told her entire career that she should lose weight.

Now, Graham is telling all of her haters, “I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too.” Her body does not define whether she can model or not. Her body is her body and shall not be criticized based on your beauty standards.

Ashley Graham is not just a plus size model, but a woman we should all admire.

Graham’s fight for body acceptance and body positivity has recently reached new heights as she had founded ALDA, a body positivity and women’s empowerment organization with other models.

She is also a judge on the “America’s Next Top Model” reboot and is continuously expanding her brand. Graham is using her platform on social media as she posts pictures some people wouldn’t dare post!

Ashley Graham is a B O S S…  

Here’s a few times Ashley was straight bossin’ on Instagram…

The grind never stops as she stops by to Complex magazine to discuss her rise to superstardom. Ashley is proving pretty girls can be bosses to!

It’s My Body & I’ll Show It Off If I Want Too

Body positivity is one of Ashley’s core values and she’s telling young girls don’t be afraid to love their bodies. She’s telling all girls to own all their curves and love their thighs.

I’m a SIZE 14 and Yes I’m Healthy

The Size 14 Ashley Graham recently graced the cover of Self magazine showcasing you don’t have to be thin in order to be healthy. Ashley says,

It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22, you can be healthy as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards.”

I’ve Always Been An Angel

A fan drew Ashley as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in hopes she would become the first plus size model to walk the runway.

Hopefully, next year she can grace the runway.

Again, these photos are an understatement of how amazing Ashley Graham is.
