With curvy girls Robyn Lawley, Ashley Graham and Kate Upton gracing the pages of Vogue and Sports Illustrated recently, could we be seeing a new breed of super model? At the very least it looks like the world of fashion has finally begun to embrace a more inclusive definition of beauty?
“With her long dark hair, lascivious scarlet lips and curvy size-18 body, Ashley Graham is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen”, purred The Sunday Times Style magazine recently about Ashley Graham. Just as attractive as their confidence is these girls’ attitudes. Follow Ashley on Instagram for insights into her workouts, her gorgeous style and more inspirational quotes than you can shake a stick of lipstick at.
If the modelling industry has decided that it’s finally time to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes, then so should we.
