Ashley Graham Reveals Why She Refrains From Calling Herself a "Plus-Size Model"
Ashley Graham is nothing short of stunning on the August cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. The model has been notoriously vocal about her views on body image and empowering women, and her recent interview proves that Ashley totally deserves to be a face of body positivity.
In her cover story, Ashley opened up about why she chooses to refrain from calling herself a plus-size model, despite industry norms: "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."
Ashley's empowering message — along with many others — is a positive reminder to all women to love themselves, though society norms may tell you to do otherwise. You can read more of her interview online and when it hits newsstands on July 12, but read on to see her gorgeous cover shots up close.
