This Body Positive Model Has Covered Vogue Twice in 3 Months
Go Ashley Graham! The world’s most famous plus-size model just landed her SECOND Vogue cover, and she did it within three months of her first. She appeared on British Vogue in December and now, she is on the March cover of American Vogue.
The famous plus-size model was photographed posing alongside Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Adwoa Aboah, Liu Wen, Vittoria Ceretti and Imaan Hammam — models who, according to Vogue, are “democratizing fashion.”
“Each of these cover girls proudly inhabits her own particular gorgeousness in her own particular way,” Maya Singer wrote in her Voguecover story. “Together they represent a seismic social shift: The new beauty norm is no norm. And fashion, the industry that—yes—has historically done much to enforce beauty codes, is joining the movement. ¡Viva la revolución! All are welcome. Anything goes.”
This is huge news for Ashley. “Sixty-seven percent of the women in America wear a size 14 or larger,” Ashley told Maya. “Sixty-seven percent. Maybe you could ignore those consumers before, but now, thanks to social media, they’re making their voices heard. Women are demanding that brands give them what they want. And what they want is to be visible.”
Right now, no one is more visible than Ashley with her mainstream magazine covers (she’s in Sports Illustrated this month too!), another swimsuit line with Swimsuits for All and as the face of Prabal Gurung’s Lane Bryant ad campaign.
The issue hits newsstands February 21.
