Ashley Graham is inspiring women of all ages, shapes and sizes with her new memoir, “A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like.” The plus-size model is leading a generation of newfound self-awareness, encouraging women to be the best version of themselves, and promoting the idea that beauty comes from within.
The voluptuous beauty was the first size 14 model to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2016. Her impressive career includes a slew of modeling gigs and television appearances, including starring in campaigns for H&M Studio and appearing latest season on America’s Next Top Model as one of the judges.
The book dives right in to Ashley Graham’s early life, discussing how she was discovered at a shopping mall in Nebraska at age thirteen. It continues with vivid and provocative short chapters detailing her personal experiences in the world of fashion, while also sharing her perspective on how ideas surrounding body image are evolving. We love the message behind the model’s path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams.
This memoir is a wonderful read for women of all ages and anyone interested in learning about the fashion and modeling industries from an insider’s perspective. Graham’s ability to be honest about the industry and her own struggles, while remaining motivational, respectful and grateful is prevalent throughout this revealing portrait of her life.
