A New Model – Ashley Graham
by Rajinder B
Ashley Graham appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. For a while she’s appeared in the media as a proponent of curvy models.
Her book A New Model, is a really good read. She goes right from the beginning of her model career, the ups and downs and says it in a really good uplifting way. There’s a lot involved with being a model, as she details, setting up preparing for shoots, then going on the walkway. She even goes through how being a curvy girl, plus size, being bullied by designers, stylists even by salespersons. I could only imagine being a curvy girl in a group of mean bullies, queen bees, and so on. She also mentions how it still goes on today. She makes a lot of good points how some high end designer clothing still do not have plus sizes, making it more challenging for woman to pick out outfits, but she does give tips on how one can mix and match different outfits. She’s featured in several line of clothing.
Swimsuits for all
In her book she really gives good all around advice, to modeling, relationships with Justin (her husband), and many areas of life. It was a really good read, highly recommend, as she says: “Beauty beyond size.”
