Ashley-Graham-in-Red-Swimsuit-2017-120-662x993 - Ashley Graham: "I don't workout to loose weight"

On being fat shamed every time she posts a workout video on Instagram:

Everytime I post a workout video I get comments like….’You’ll never be skinny so stop trying’ and ‘You still need your fat to be a model.’ I workout to stay healthy, feel good, get rid of jet lag, clear my head, show big girls we can move like the rest of em, stay flexible & strong, have more energy. I don’t workout to loose (sic) weight or my curves, bc I love the skin I’m in…

… says Ashley.

Ashley Graham on Rihanna not Using Plus-Sized Models: “It’s sad”

On being disappointed in the fact that Rihanna did not use any plus-sized models in her Fenty show at NYFW:

‘It’s sad.’It’s funny to me, because I’ll look at runways and think, “I’d look so great in those clothes” or “I know curvy women who would look so great in those clothes. I was at Fenty last night, and that was an amazing show. But how dope would it have been to see some curves on the runway?’

… says Ashley.

Models during the Fenty show – Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 16 year-old daughter:

Ashley Graham: “I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’” 

ashley-ny-mag-1 - Ashley Graham: "I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’" 

On why she hates the word “plus-size”:

It’s like, ‘Plus what?’ That’s something I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’  I’m not here to ban the word from the dictionary” — plenty of women own and love it. I prefer curvy or curve.

On how curvy women-of-color model friends of hers like Marquita Pring and Precious Lee aren’t getting the same opportunities:

I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege. To not see black or Latina women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me.

On skipping the Met Gala:

I couldn’t get a designer to dress me. You can’t just show up in jeans and a T-shirt.

On how she doesn’t like that she is famous for her size:

On the subway, girls see me and go, ‘If I had a girl when I was in high school talk the way you talk about your body, my life would be different.’ People look at my size now and know that’s what makes me famous. That kind of sucks, too, because it’s like, ‘Damn, my size is what makes me famous?’ This is the thing: I know I’m paving the way for the next generation of girls, and they’re not going to have to do this. That’s what I hope. I’ll take the brunt work and just handle it, and then you guys can just sail right on through.
