Rising supermodel and designer Ashley Graham can now add Editor to her resume. The bombshell brunette has been everywhere with brands vying for her curvy appeal. Whether it’s gracing the cover as the first plus size model for Sports Illustrated, a ready to wear line on the horizon or starring as Joe Jonas‘ love interest in DNCE’s latest music video, the entrepreneurial empire that Ashley told Maxim she desired (another cover slayage) is coming to fruition.
More than just looks, this beauty has brains…and she’ll be lending them to In Style.
For the first time, she is attaching her name to a glossy masthead. Avid In Style readers might have noticed her “Great Style Has No Size” column in the May and June 2016 issues and the organization has apparently been happy that they have brought her on for a more permanent position.
“For so long people have been asking me: How do you dress your curves? Which brand do you love? How do you hide this, how do you accentuate that? And I really just wanted to give my 411 on everything curves-related and just give back, in a way.”
Ashley wants to highlight trends in future columns and strip the misconception that curvy girls can only wear and access basics. She further wants to promote under the radar plus-size brands that rarely get covered within mainstream magazines.
The May column focuses on swimwear, Ashley’s area of expertise, and with perfect timing since she recently just launched an 11 piece Swimsuitsforall collection (two pieces are already sold out). The line is available in sizes 10 through 20.
Congrats, Ashley, on adding another brick in building your fashion empire.
