If you doubt that you can be charmed by cellulite, we’re here to blow your minds. Ashley Graham can seemingly do no wrong: From her super sexy video with Joe Jonas to her contributing editor status at InStyle, she’s changing the industry one fabulous step at a time. And now, she’s given us yet another reason to admire her kicka$$ self. While other celebs do their best to hide or filter out their dimply skin, Ashley is proudly (and defiantly?) showing it off.
Posting a pic of herself on Instagram, Ashley can be seen riding a bike through the city streets in a purple, pink and yellow shirt (totally adorbs, btw), running shoes and not much else. Without pants, her legs are on full view as is the cellulite on her thigh.
Cringing? That’s a pretty clear sign of how we’ve been trained to dislike parts of our body that are totally natural — and Ashley is encouraging all of us to fight back. She captioned the pic with, “A little cellulite never hurt nobody… Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called ‘ugly’. #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize”
Learning to love our cellulite might not be easy, but it’s totally worth the effort. Body-positive hero, we salute you!
