Plus-Size Model Ashley Graham Wants to Be the 'Curvier Version' of Heidi Klum
Posted on January 14 2018
Ashley Graham has already made a name for herself in the modeling industry, but she hopes to eventually become one of the greats.
"I definitely look up to Kathy Ireland, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Cindy Crawford," the plus-size model, 27, told website The Coveteur. "I've watched their careers and they have just blossomed into extraordinary and amazing things. I can't wait to be the curvier version of all of them."
While Graham – who has modeled lingerie for Lane Bryant and landed a bikini ad in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue – faced adversity in the beginning of her career, she believes the fashion industry is changing.
"I've faced criticism my whole career," she said in the interview. "It's come from fans, it's come from agents, and it's come from other models. But I think that it's all a matter of how you handle it and I turned it all into a positive thing. Now the industry has totally changed and it's not as much about size anymore – everyone's really jumped on the bandwagon of not letting size be the defining factor of determining what beauty truly is."
