I got the idea to do this post from watching reruns of VH1’s Best Week Ever. Model & Positive Body Advocate, Ashley Graham really had the best week ever and took social media by storm!!!
On September 14th, She spoke at Lane Bryant’s #PlusIsEqual Event. The #PlusIsEqual, Lane Bryant’s newest advertising campaign. It will bring awareness for retailers to give equal attention to and celebrate women of all shapes and sizes.
This is an amazing, all-inclusive, high-end fashion campaign,’ Graham told the Huffington Post.
Everyone deserves to see themselves being represented equally. #PlusIsEqual is showing that curvy women are accepted, they’re represented and being made a priority in the fashion industry,’ she added.
September 18th, Ashley stopped by Good Morning America. Robin Roberts also asked the model why she thinks she has been able to resonate with so many people?
Because I talk about the flaws that society said that women like I have. I’ve got rolls, I’ve got curves, I’ve got cellulite” she explained. “Things jiggle that shouldn’t jiggle, apparently — and I’m not afraid to talk about it, and I am not afraid to showcase it on a runway live in action.
