Ashley Graham is defying unrealistic body standards, one Instagram photo at a time.
The Sports Illustrated model is known for her beautiful curves and no-nonsense attitude towards her weight, which is why she’s fast become one of the biggest plus-size pin-ups of our time.
And over the weekend, the 28-year-old posted a photo of herself riding a bicycle, clad in a pretty multi-coloured dress and Converse. And the caption was everything.
‘A little cellulite never hurt nobody. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called “ugly.” #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize’, Ashley wrote next to the snap.
A top model giving a shoutout to her cellulite is pretty unheard of, so we’re all over Ashley’s real girl attitude. Because come on, who doesn’t have a bit of orange peel in their lives?!
And her fans on Instagram couldn’t stop celebrating her refreshing attitude towards her ‘flaws’.
‘You look marvelous, magnificent!’, one user commented underneath.
‘This is why she’s my favourite human’, wrote another.
Whilst another explained that Ashley had helped her to overcome her own body demons, writing: ‘OMG thank you SO much for posting this! I’ve hated my legs for so long and this just made my day.
‘You and the fact that you’re so confident makes me want to love myself more and stop caring so much about what the world thinks and calls “ugly”. Rock on sister!’
Aww. Mission achieved, Ms Graham.
