Ashley Graham Says Her Cellulite Is Changing People's Lives

Posted: Updated:

Ashley Graham is no stranger to showing off her cellulite, and for good reason.

In a recent interview with Seventeen magazine, the 28-year-old size sexy model said she believes her thigh dimples are making an impact on the world.

"I love what I do and I love where I'm going," Graham told the glossy. "I love how the world is changing right before my eyes. I like to say that my cellulite is changing someone's life out there."

And that change, according to the Grazia U.K. cover girl, is already happening.

"You've seen curvy women on the covers of magazines, and commercials, and movies," the "America's Next Top Model" judge told Seventeen. "And I was never even able to say the names of five curvy women I could look up to, and now I can. More than ever, designers are putting women my size on the runway, putting us in their campaigns."

She continued, "I feel like fashion is finally jumping on the bandwagon and saying, 'You know what? Diversity of age, race, and size is necessary, and we're bringing it to you now.'"

And indeed, Graham has been somewhat of a trailblazer in this change, making history earlier this year by becoming the first plus-size woman to cover Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's issue.

So for that we say thank you Ashley and Ashley's thighs for helping to make the fashion world a more diverse place.
