Ashley Graham is not only a drop dead gorgeous model, but also an advocate for body positivity who you should be following on Instagram, social media, and everywhere in general if you aren’t already.
You may know her as a lingerie or swimsuit model, she even has a lingerie line with Canadian brand Addition Elle, as well as her own incredible line of bathing suits with swim suits for all.
As Cosmo’s August cover girl, Graham explained why she doesn’t personally call herself a plus-size model:
“Just because I’m not calling myself plus size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is… I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before-a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful.”
Graham also appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated back in February. She dedicated her cover to “every woman who felt like she wasn’t beautiful enough because of her size. You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to.”
