According to an article on Fashionista, Ashley Graham has been featured in the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Issue for the third year in a row. The curvy model stars alongside non-model women of different shapes, sizes, and ages.
Graham can be seen in a colorful swimsuit with a couple of other women. This includes young, old, curvy, and non-white women as well as locals of the photo shoots location, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Though, the magazine has featured non-model women before, it has never put them in the Swimsuit Issue.
The swimsuits the women’s are wearing are part of a collection Graham did with Swimsuits For All. A collection who’s ad campaign is called “Every Body, Every Age, Every Beautiful” and is available in sizes 6 – 26.
Graham released a statement saying,
“I was so excited to shoot with local women for this shoot, non-models who represent all different body shapes, proving that everyone can look gorgeous in my swimsuits. We’re continuing to shift perceptions of beauty and encouraging more inclusivity in the fashion industry.”
Although, these photos are for an ad and not an exclusive editorial for Sports Illustrated, it’s still good that the magazine has these women in it.
This is the third year in row that Graham has been featured in the Swimsuit Issue. In 2015, she was the first ever plus-size model to be featured in the magazine. Then, in 2016, she was the first plus-size model to be featured on the cover. Since then she’s been in campaigns for brands like H&M, Forever 21, Marina Ronaldo, and more.
You can get pieces from the collection on swimsuitsforall.com starting at $72.
