If you were scrolling through Instagram yesterday, Nov. 19, you might have thought plus-size model Ashley Graham was walking in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The 30-year-old American model posted a photo of herself with what we know now are photoshopped wings. And we don’t think it’s a coincidence that the famous fashion show was being filmed in Shanghai the same day she decided to post her photo.
Ashley has been open about her belief that there needs to be more diversity on the runway. She’s called out designers and brands for not catering to a curvier audience. So, was this her latest critique of the industry? Watch the video to see why fans are saying yes!
While not everyone agrees with her philosophy, many of her fans were quick to support her on social media. One follower wrote, “Love that you are like most women… Thick thighs, curves and cellulitis! I am too one of them!!! Love your confidence!” Another added, ” Thank you for achieving so many goals and showing me it’s ok to be me and it’s ok to be big, beautiful and confident. You are TRULY an INSPIRATION.”
We love that Ashley has the confidence to show off her body and inspire other women to love their bodies as well. Slim or thick, we think all women should be rocking this kind of body positivity!
