Supermodel Ashley Graham has been breaking stereotypes on what models are supposed to look like for years now. From being the first so-called “curvy model” to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition to not being shy about sharing pictures of her cellulite, she has inspired many women to embrace their bodies what matter what their shape or style.
On Saturday she shared a series of photos on her Instagram showing off how to wear denim-on-denim the right way.
Jumping on the off-the-shoulder shirt trend, Graham wore light washed jeans with a revealing dark denim top. She completed the look with statement oversized hoops and beige heeled boots. She let her long locks flow and kept the makeup very light. She effortlessly achieved the perfect weekend look.
Graham also shared with her 4.4 million Instagram followers Story videos enjoying her weekend with friends, sipping on coffee and riding around in a golf cart.
Most recently, Graham graced the cover of Glamour magazine where she opened up about redefining what “sexy” means and empowering women to feel great with what the media calls “flaws.”
“Embrace what you have,” she said. “Say, ‘Belly, you might be poking out today, but I’m going to choose to love you and nurture you.’”
Graham is not shy about sharing her imperfections. And her fans love her for it. This swimsuit photo she posted last week received almost 280,000 likes and over 4,000 comments.
One commenter wrote, “Being an ambassador is one who promotes being healthy vs what the world would like to see. Good on you for not photoshopping this pic and reminding the world that models aren’t flawless, loved you on #antm. Keep it up bae and don’t change.”
Another commenter added, “All natural no implants what real women in the world look like nothing fake here, great role model, who needs Victoria Secret, bravo! bravo!”
