Ashley Graham is smoking hot, so let’s just get that out of the way. As one of the most successful and most notable plus-sized models, there’s a lot of pressure on her to always look ~flawless~. Luckily, Graham’s got a good head on her shoulders to go with her rockin’ bod. She knows “perfection” is a trap and true beauty comes from killer confidence.
Ashley Graham is the curvalicious plus-size model who’s graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, Maxim, and Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition:
Graham made history as the first plus-sized model on the cover of SI: Swimsuit Edition.
She’s even got her own Barbie doll:
She also uses her platform of 3 million Instagram followers to promote body positivity:
Recently she posted a pic of her cellulite to let everyone know that a few dimples don’t detract from diva-like beauty:
The caption reads:
I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn’t be either. #beautybeyondsize #lovetheskinyourein
Graham’s post has already raked in close to 300,000 likes, more than twice the usual number.
Her supportive fans are loving the dose of reality:
Over 6,000 people have commented on her pic to express their support.
Graham’s fellow SI: Swimsuit Edition covergirl (and Berry girl crush) Chrissy Teigen recently posted a pic of her stretch marks to make the same point:
“Whatevs”—a word to live by.
