It is an Ashley Graham season as she features on yet another magazine cover. This time, she covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and she killed it!

I previously featured the stunning Ashley Graham British Vogue cover some days ago. So it was a pleasant surprise to see her on the Cosmopolitan January issue as well. I think I can see more of her body on this cover but I think the Vogue cover is more tasty.

Here is the Vogue cover for January for those who have no clue what I am on about –

I do like both magazine covers. I just think the Vogue is a prettier and more classy shot. Do you agree?

Anyways back to the Cosmopolitan January issue, I have seen it around in the shops and I am hoping to grab a copy (as it is just £1) this week while on holiday. I would love to read more about Ashley Graham. I have gone from not knowing who she is, to seeing her on the cover of 2 major magazines in the UK, in the last couple of days, so she has my full attention now.

I would love to read more about he modelling career and how she has survived the whole plus size modelling industry. I hear it has not been a smooth ride to the top. I even read about many brands allegedly refusing to send Graham clothes for her British Vogue cover, can you imagine that? I would have thought designers would jump at dressing anyone for a British Vogue cover. I guess sizeism is alive and very common in the fashion industry.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you aware of sizeism in the fashion industry? What do you think of this Cosmopolitam cover?

Sound off in the comments section below please.

Ashley Graham Covers British Vogue January 2017

The beautiful American model – Ashley Graham covers the January 2017 issue of British Vogue, and she looks divine on it. I have never heard of this beauty before so it was kind of good to see her on a Vogue cover. I am not completely surprised she is on it though, Vogue tends to feature models a lot more than regular celebs which is kind of good thing I guess.

This issue sounds like a good read. Here are a few excerpts from Graham’s interview with the magazine –

 

Her career journey:

“For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back,” she told D’Souza. “Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, ‘OK, so what can I do now?’”

I agree with what she has said here completely. The job is to get invited back.

 

On being called a plus size model:

“When we’re supposed to be talking about diversity for women, it feels so divisive and purpose-defeating, giving us yet another label,” she said. She does, however, acknowledge that her body shape, and positive promotion of it, has been not only her own USP, but an inspiration to millions of women who feel forgotten when it comes to finding fashion to fit.

I like the fact that Ashley Graham looks happy in her own skin.

I am on the fence with this issue. I am not sure if I would be picking up a copy or not.
