Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016: now we're talking!

Remember when I said Ashley Graham is a major hottie and she totally deserved her place in the New York Fashion Week' runway? Well, I was definitely right. She is officially the first plus size model on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and every woman on the planet has to approve and be proud of her! 

This is what the plus size model and body activist had to say on her instagram about the magazine's choice: "Truly speechless!!! This cover is for every woman who felt like she wasn't beautiful enough because of her size. You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to." 

And here's a sample of how great she looks:

Beautiful, sexy and real: now we're talking!

Ashley is changing the fashion industry and I believe we need more of that. It's time to stop this sick and cruel obsession with weight, with sizes, with false and delusional perfection.  I invite you to listen to her TED talk and learn something about body diversity and self acceptance:



"I felt free, once I realized I was never going to fit the narrow mold that society wanted me to fit in. I was never going to be perfect enough for an industry that defines perfection from the outside in, and that's okay."

I think she said it all, right?
