Ashley Graham feels she represents curvy women
Los Angeles, July 9 (IANS) Model Ashley Graham believes she represents curvy women at a table “with high-end fashion people”.
“Just because I’m not calling myself plus size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is,” Cosmpolitan magazine quote Graham as saying, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before – a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful,” she added.
Graham also opened up about the prejudice she has faced because of her interracial relationship with husband Justin Ervin.
“One comment on Instagram was ‘I knew a girl her size could only be with a black guy.’ I think that’s so ugly. But we talk about the fact that I’m white and he’s black all the time. I’ve seen how racist America is,” she said.
“It’s opened my eyes to how ignorant I have been, how white privilege has taken over a lot of my thoughts and actions because it’s just something that I take for granted,” she added.
