Supermodel Ashley Graham is more than a pretty face and at the premiere party for America’s Next Top Model, the panelist talked about bringing her body activism to the reality competition. Graham, who made history as the first plus-sized model on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, said that “being a body activist is really not about representing one kind of body, it’s about representing every type of body. The beautiful thing about women is that we all come in shapes and sizes that are completely different.” The body activist also talked about working with the aspiring models to accept their bodies, “I’m really excited that I was able to encourage the young girls who felt that they were too heavy or felt that they weren’t in shape and really give them some guidance. That’s just a very small aspect of what I felt that I brought to so many of their lives.”
