Another day, another stunning snapshot of Ashley Graham. This time, the world-famous model, 31, took to her Instagram Story on Thursday, May 30, to share a topless, makeup-free selfie. Needless to say, we’re pretty much in awe right now and you’re about to be, too.
Considering Ashley has been a heavy-hitter in the modeling industry since 2000, it’s no surprise that she’s one of the best in the business. However, there’s no denying that 2019 is absolutely her best year yet — both professionally and physically. The curvy, brunette beauty is constantly posting killer fitspo on her social channels about the importance of embracing the skin you’re in.
“I have never let my body come in the way of training and training hard,” she captioned a kickass workout video earlier this month. “Boobs, butt, tummy — nothing stops me from moving my body and taking control of my health!” Hell yeah, girl. You’re an inspiration to us all.
Speaking of being an inspiration, Ashley is fully aware of how powerful her platform is. She is constantly working toward spreading a positive message about self-love and beauty standards. “After my TED talk came out, I had a girl with an eating disorder write me and say that I had instilled so much confidence in her, that watching me talk with confidence about my own body had encouraged her to seek treatment,” Ashley told Harper’s Bazaar Australia.
“That’s when I realized, ‘Holy crap, me sharing my story is going to change people’s lives.’” Changing lives, indeed! We hope that Ashley continues to share her story for years to come — whether it’s through inspirational speeches or fire selfies on social media. To be honest, we’ll take both, please and thank you.
