LONDON — Model Ashley Graham has broken a lot of barriers on her way to plus- sized super stardom but a recent photo shoot shows there’s still some barriers yet to be broken.
Graham is the cover girl for the January edition of British Vogue — news that’s been met with much praise.
What isn’t being praised are the fashion houses that reportedly refused to work with Graham on the photo shoot.
The editor-in-chief of British Vogue wrote a letter expressing her disappointment with the designers who she says “flatly refused” to lend Graham their clothes. She continued saying in part
“…the rest of the world is desperate for fashion to embrace broader definitions of physical beauty, some of our most famous fashion brands appear to be traveling in the opposite – and, in my opinion, unwise – direction.”
Either way, Graham isn’t satisfied with just gracing the British Vogue cover. She’s expressed interest in becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel by posting this photo during this year’s fashion show….
She says IF Victoria’s Secret gives her a call — it’ll be a definite yes!
No matter what happens, it looks like Ashley Graham’s career will be flying sky high with or without the wings.
