One of the biggest inspirations for most women has got to be Ashley Graham. The Queen of all things fashion, self-love and just being real. We just dropped our second collection with this fierce female.
5 Times Ashley Graham Inspired Us
There are 100+ times we could think of Ashley Graham inspiring us, but to keep it short and sweet we have narrowed it down to our top 5 iconic moments. This fierce lady is dominating the fashion field and wants everyone to feel happy in their own body, so join her and us as we celebrate #everyBODYinPLT.
The TED Talks
Her opening line to this incredible speech was ‘you are bold, you are brilliant and you are beautiful’. This speech is all about Ashley’s journey of being a plus-size model and how society should start to look at all models.
Plus size? More like my size
Did you know in the modeling industry, ‘plus size’ starts at a US Size 8? This would make most women plus-size. How does that staple make you feel? Ashley is ALL about losing the staple of plus-size and making sizing in clothing more accessible for all women with no stigma.
She’s a pretty big deal
Ashley is the first model to start a podcast and so far has been a massive hit. From guest appearances from the likes of Kim Kardashian, Amy Schumer & Serina Williams they have covered topics that every girl is all for. From dealing with life in the public eye to feminism, this is something you’re going to want to give a listen.
When she shading Victoria’s Secret for their zero plus-sized models
Although we all love the Victoria Secret shows, we can’t but feel it is missing something. Ashley Graham threw shade’s at the company for not feeling inclusive and the brand not representing all women. We hope we see her on that runway with the angels soon.
Health-focused > Weight focused
*Yes girl, we do”
Don’t for a second think that Ashley doesn’t care about her health. This body advocate shares videos on her Instagram of her KILLING it in the gym and opening talks about how a balanced diet is essential. Everything in moderation as they say·
