For Supermodel Ashley Graham, Her Body Isn’t A Trend

In the present day, diversity is something that shouldn’t have to be forced, pushed, or reminded of. Yet, this past fashion week season, there was a notable shift backward in the progress of body diversity presence on the runway. As one of the industry’s brightest lights, supermodel Ashley Graham has surpassed barriers while demanding the respect and inclusion of curve models in high fashion. As an advocate for body positivity, her presence led the way for others to be included within the broadening framework of the modeling industry. After modeling for years, Graham nabbed a historic cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue back in 2016, which changed the trajectory of her career to include landing covers for American and British Vogue, V Magazine, and Harper’s Bazaar. With a lucrative Revlon beauty contract, tv appearances, and even her own Barbie, Graham has elevated her career by pushing into the public sphere, like her recent Oscar red carpet moment, holding her own interviewing the Hollywood elite. Now a wife and mother of three, Graham is redefining what it means to be a supermodel and has one message for those that would block progress – her body isn’t a trend. Shot by Kloss Films, Graham transports us to Milan during fashion week to give audiences a glimpse of a day in her life dashing from fittings to the runway to the front row.
