27-year-old plus size model Ashley Graham is officially the first lady for plus-size Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition. She was named the Full Figured Fashion Week’s Model of the Year back in 2012, and now her career is set to skyrocket as the first Plus-Sized Swimsuit Model for SI.
According to her official website:
“Ashley has been featured in fashion magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, O Magazine and Latina. In addition, she has appeared regularly in several Marina Rinaldi campaigns and in two iconic Levi’s campaigns: The Boyfriend Collection 2010 and the Curve ID SS 11.Vogue’s 2008 Shape Issue dedicated a 3 pages article about her personal style and she was also one of the 5 models selected in Glamour’s 2009 Shape Issue ‘These Bodies are Beautiful at Every Size.’”
The curvy babe from Lincoln, Nebraska is dedicated to keeping fit and says that “It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 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.”
