Ashley Graham shows beauty comes in all sizes
Supermodel Ashley Graham has come bursting onto the scene to break down barriers and dismiss stereotypes that have for so long defined what was considered by many as beautiful.
From her appearance in Vogue Magazine covers to walking in runway shows, Graham has become a shining beacon for women of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. She's become someone that they not only can look up to, but also relate to.
A Revlon spokesmodel, Graham has put emphasis on making meaningful movements rather than fleeting movements. Graham believes that the only way to change things for the better is to keep on discussing the body image problems women are facing and the sheer lack of diversity.
Although Graham has only recently been in the spotlight, she has actually modeled since she was a teenager. She's put in the work and she's now reaping the rewards of her earlier labors. Although she could not care less about losing weight, she does care about getting healthy.
Perhaps the biggest thing that Graham is currently advocating is urging clothes companies to drop the labels. She urges women to fight for each other and together so women are no longer grouped by the size of their pants.
With models such as Graham paving the way, the future looks bright for women of all sizes to shine going forward. Hopefully, in a few years, curvy models will become more of a norm than a niche. After all, beauty is more than just size. Once more brands and designers decide to put curvy models in their campaigns, the way we perceive beauty will change for the better of equality as well.
