On February 9th, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition hits newsstands, delighting men everywhere. But this year, SI has crowned a new woman queen - 27 year old Ashley Graham.
"I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to help and educate women on that,” she wrote. "It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself, ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards."
Ashley will be the first size 14-16 model to appear in this year’s annual issue. Her appearance is part of an ad for the plus-size bathing suit company swimsuitsforall, calling the campaign #curvesinbikinis.
She says in a statement: "I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt."
Watch the video to check out her new ad, and find out why Ashley is making history.
