25ย Times Ashley Graham's Perfection Blew Us Away

Posted on

Goddess among us Ashley Graham, who has graced the likes of Vogue and Sports Illustrated, recently opened up to V magazine about her journey to self-love.

“I grew up in a very Christian home, so words have power,” she told the mag. “I took that with me into every area of my life. If you say, ‘I’m fat,’ that’s how you’re going to feel. If you say, ‘I’m stupid,’ that’s how you’re going to start your day. I wake up sometimes and I feel like the fattest person alive, but I’m not going to let that affect the rest of my day. Say to yourself, ‘I like this day. I am bold, I am beautiful, and I am brilliant.’ For me, that hits the interior, the exterior, and it makes me feel smart.”

Because we can’t possibly have enough Graham in our lives, we’re treating ourselves to 30 more times she embodied the definition of “flawless.”

When she was a walking, talking piece of art at the Met Gala.

When she celebrated International Lingerie Day by prancing around in a thong.
