PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Ashley Graham stars in a new campaign for Swimsuits for All.
The 27-year-old will become the first plus-size model to be featured in Sports Illustrated when the magazine runs her ad in their annual swimsuit issue. Graham is a size 14, and an active proponent of size diversity in the media.
"Secrets out!! So honored to be the face of #CurvesInBikinis for @swimsuitsforall!" she captioned a photo from the shoot on Instagram. "#beautybeyondsize #sexystateomind #lovetheskinyourein #curvesfordays #ashleygraham."
"I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are, too," the model declared in a statement. "There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt. The world is ready for more curves in bikinis."
Graham came to fame as a lingerie model for Lane Bryant, and has modeled for Levi and Marina Rinaldi. She covered Elle Quebec in June 2014, and also appeared in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour. Sports Illustrated will unveil its 2015 Swimsuit Issue on February 11.
