Ashley Graham Tells 'Elle Canada' We Are In The 'Body Era'!

Ashley Graham Tells 'Elle Canada' We Are In The 'Body Era'!

Ashley Graham looks totally badass and beautiful on the new October 2016 cover of Elle Canada magazine, hitting newsstands on September 12th!

Here’s what the 28-year-old model had to share with the mag:

On not always having confidence: “When I was growing up, my mom always told me that I was smart even though I was called dumb in school because I have dyslexia. I was also a big girl who played sports and ate well, and she would tell me ‘You’re fit and healthy.’ I was super-insecure at the time, but it helped to hear her words. Then I moved to New York [to model] and gained a ton of weight because I wasn’t working out or eating right. I hated the woman I had become because I didn’t feel right in my own skin. I was a size 18 and I was looking for affirmation and attention in all the wrong areas. I had agents telling me I had to lose weight, and I was like, “Why am I allowing people to dictate my future?’”

On being an inspiration: “You know what’s so funny? I think women think I’m inspirational because I’m unapologetic. I have cellulite. I have back fat. I’ve got a thick stomach. But I work my body like I don’t because I don’t know any other body. I don’t know how to feel thin. I just know how to feel like Ashley.”

On diversity today: “Yeah! There’s such a diversity thing happening now between age, body type, race and gender—it’s huge. I’m so excited to be part of this story. We had the Cindy Era, the Kate Era and now this is the Body Era.”

    Ashley Graham may not be a super-skinny model, but she is gorgeous. I’d definitely hit it. :)
