Following her much talked-about inclusion in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this past February, plus-size model Ashley Graham became an instant household name after years of modelling for the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. We seem to hear about Graham everywhere these days, so it comes as no surprise that she’s just been given The Coveteur treatment, too. Shot at her Brooklyn home, the spread features Graham traipsing around a rooftop in the awesome lingerie she designed in partnership with Addition Elle. To say it’s a refreshing sight is an understatement—the images are some of the most beautiful and empowering we’ve seen in a long time.
When asked whom she looks up to in the industry, Graham mentioned stars like Heidi Klum and Kathy Ireland, noting, “I’ve watched their careers, and they have just blossomed into extraordinary and amazing things. I can’t wait to be the curvier version of all of them.” Well, we have no doubt that she will be.
