Ashley Graham is making history and she looks amazing doing it. Ashley Graham is the very first plus-sized model in history to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine and she is representing the curvy girl community with pride. In an industry that has primarily been geared towards the very slim, this photo is unprecedented and acts as a breath of fresh air in the modeling industry. Ashley Graham is a seasoned model and has posed for heavy weight magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. With those magazines on her resume, it was only a matter of time before Ashley ended up on a cover like Sports Illustrated and now this curvy brunette beauty is taking the modeling world by storm.
