"Sexy is a state of mind," says Ashley Graham. Have to totally agree with that statement! Ashley Graham is a plus-size model who is currently making major waves in the process of changing the industry standards in the modeling world. It's really not about what size you are. It's about confidence and embracing yourself as you are.
Ashley Graham has modeled lingerie for Lane Bryant which is what she is best known for. She has also been featured in fashion magazines such as Vogue, Glamour and Latina, along with several Levi's campaigns. She started modeling with Wilhelmina Models back in 2001, then signed with Ford Models in 2003. She recently announced via twitter that her newest adventure will be with IMG Models! IMG Models is ranked as the world's number one international model management firm. Huge step forward for the plus-size community!
Ashley knows what she is doing when it comes to lingerie and managed to design her own lingerie line with Canadian plus-size clothing retailer, Addition Elle, this year. With this new contract with IMG Models, I'm sure we will be seeing a lot more of her!
