Ashley Graham freaking slayed her 2018 "Sports Illustrated" photo shoot
It’s pretty clear that Ashley Graham is one busy woman. She’s rocking the New York Fashion Week runways and recently made history as the first plus-size model to have a beauty contract with Revlon’s “Live Boldly” campaign. Before that, she made history as the first plus-size model on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue in 2016. And though this year’s cover belongs to Danielle Herrington, Ms. Graham has blessed us yet again with another SI swimsuit spread.
In 2016, the models’ shoot was in Turks and Caicos, 2017 was Fiji, and the most recent spread took place on the Caribbean island of Nevis. Though the locations have changed, a few things have remained: sand, swimsuits, and Ashley as she continues to make us wonder how she continues to slay so effortlessly.
We’re assuming “how to slay 101” can’t be taught in undergrad (unless Ashley’s willing to start a masterclass?), but in the meantime, we can appreciate her latest swimsuit spread and try to pick up some tips.
Making that yellow werk.
Bet you’ve never seen a candy striper like this.
While Graham can slay on her own, she clearly gets it from her momma. The model enlisted the help of her mom, Linda Graham, for her latest Swimsuits for All capsule collection.
And though we can’t take any official modeling/slay lessons from Graham, she shared a few of her go-to moves on Instagram with momma Graham by her side.
Always remember: “Hips back, forward with the chest and give ’em a nice smile.”
Confidence and good looks are clearly genetic traits.
