For the first time ever, in the history of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, there are three cover models – and the stunning Ashley Graham is one of them! Together with Ronda Rousey and Haily Clauson, Assistant Editor MJ Day explains: “The three covers of Hailey, Ronda and Ashley celebrate the new SI Swimsuit. All three women are beautiful, sexy and strong. Beauty is not cookie cutter. Beauty is not ‘one size fits all.’ Beauty is all around us and that became especially obvious to me while shooting and editing this year’s issue”.
“Ashley Graham is a sultry, feminine masterpiece. I dare you not to stare at her. Ashley commands your attention in her photographs. She owns her sexiness in a way that every woman should. Her confidence is contagious.”
This choice by Sports Illustrated is so inspiring! I know that many curvy women have been featured on the cover of huge fashion magazines many times before, however, this is very special. I have never been able to relate to the women in SI as they were very petite and definitely not wearing any swimsuits suitable for my body! Finally, things have changed. Ashley, you look amazing!
I am truly in awe of this woman and what she has accomplished! She is one of the most beautiful women in the world in my opinion – both inside and out. And she is such a role model to me. I follow her every step on social media and I want the best things to happen to her in her future career!
