With large size and generous shapes, Ashley Graham has not yet been invited to participate in Victoria’s Secret show. A situation she prefers to take with humor.
The model shared the photo on her social profile and in the caption of the post she wrote: ” I got my wings! My Wings of Addition Elle! “.
The model has always supported the bodies away from the current canons of beauty, believing that a body is beautiful beyond the size. It was the first curvy model to appear on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, the special edition of Sports Illustrated, the leading American magazine dedicated to the sport. In addition, the curvy top model participated in an advertisement campaign of a lingerie brand on the Lane Bryant platform, which challenges Victoria’s Secret brand with the hashtag #ImNoAngel ( I’m not an angel ).
The lingerie brand invites to its catwalks models like Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima, but has refused to open the way to diversity, showing only sculptural bodies, with angelic faces and perfect smiles.
More than a year ago, Graham declared herself interested in the project and in an interview admitted that she was willing to parade for the brand when they wanted.
