As temperatures drop throughout much of the U.S., it’s a great time to go someplace tropical. Well, it looks like Ashley Graham is having the best vacation ever, according to People, and she’s got photos to prove it. The supermodel is currently in Puerto Rico with friends and put the proof on Snapchat.
Of course, Graham is well-deserving of a vacation, having had many successes this year, including the launch of her plus-size lingerie line in September during New York Fashion Week.
Here are a few stills from Graham’s Snapchat. Btw, if you think the black bikini looks familiar, that’s because it’s from Graham’s Swimwear For All collection. We love it.
Here’s Graham twerking for her friends.
Here’s another piece from Graham’s swimwear collection, also taken in Puerto Rico.
And more fun in the sun.
Yup, it definitely looks like Graham’s having a great time — and we’re insanely jealous. But again, it’s soooo well-deserved.
Aside from her swimsuit and lingerie lines, Graham’s has a packed year, from being on the cover of Sports Illustrated — as the first size-16 model to be, btw — to launching the America’s Next Top Model reboot. The latter premiered on December 12th and had its highest ratings in five years. Woo-hoo! So it’s no doubt that Graham’s doing something right; actually, everything right.
And, of course, we always love Graham’s body positivity and empowering attitude.
“I felt free once I realized I was never going to fit the mold that society wanted me to fit in,” she said in a TED Talk last year, according to mybody+soul. “I was never going to be perfect enough for an industry that defines perfection from the outside and that’s okay. Rolls, curves, cellulite, all of it — I love every part of me. But this is the generation of body diversity. The current is changing.”
Preach! And we only hope that it keeps on keeping on, and that Graham keeps doing what she’s doing, too. Meanwhile, Graham has also inspired us to get someplace warm, STAT. Brb while we go look for plane tickets…
