Ashley Graham becomes first plus size model on the front of Sports Illustrated Magazine
What an amazing day for plus size women – finally, a plus size model has been represented on the front of one of the most iconic magazines around – Sports Illustrated. Well done Ashley Graham, we salute you!
Her front cover, which is one of three the magazine have taken to print is a step in the right direction, for getting different kinds of body types represented in main stream media.
Here’s what the gorgeous lady had to say about her success:
“I thought Sports Illustrated was taking a risk by putting a girl my size in the pages. But putting me on the cover? They aren’t just breaking barriers. They are the standard now. This is beyond epic.”
