Ashley Graham is one of the handful of amazing women on the forefront of the body-positive movement.
The 28-year-old was the first plus-size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated and was also featured on the cover of Glamour's very first plus-size issue. She's making waves and doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.
In a recent interview with Seventeen, the model talked about the development of the body-positive movement. She's seen the transformation of the fashion industry up close and personal, and according to her, things are looking up.
Graham feels honored to have the opportunity to "change someone's life" with her body.
It's time we start accepting cellulite, isn't it? Because the struggle with cellulite is something all women know too well.
The ever-growing presence of plus-size women in fashion as well as in television, movies and media has had a lasting, positive effect on women everywhere, especially Graham.
Of course, not everyone is on board. When it comes to the haters and body-shamers, Graham has had her fair share, but she's done dealing with them.
And Graham isn't the only plus-size model who wants to put body-shaming to an end.
In a recent video Lane Byrant put out for its fall #ThisBody Is Made To Shine campaign, Graham along with other familiar plus-size faces like Gabourey Sidibe, Danielle Brooks, Candice Huffine and Alessandra Garcia read negative, body-shaming comments aloud while showing off their sexy curves.
These gorgeous women are easily able to prove the haters wrong. They rock their curves with confidence, and we should, too.
