From becoming the first size 16 model and gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, to landing a role as a judge on "America's Next Top Model" (oh, and did we mention she even has her own Barbie doll?) Ashley Graham has been slaying 2016.

And to finish off this brilliant year, the "size sexy" body positive model just added another major accomplishment to her resume: her first Vogue cover.


Covering British Vogue's January 2017 issue, the 29-year-old brunette beauty looks effortlessly cool in a Coach leather jacket equipped with chains and patches. With her windswept hair and minimal makeup, Graham's natural beauty shines.

Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, Graham shared the cover on her Instagram page, writing that it was an "absolute honour" to cover the British edition of the glossy.

"My first #vogue cover! Thank you to everyone at @britishvogue! #covergirl #beauttbeyondsize #liveyourdreams," she wrote.

As Fashionista points out, this is a major move for British Vogue, as Ashley is the first plus-size model to score the cover of the iconic magazine. In the November 2016 issue, editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman wrote about the industry's unrealistic body standards and dubbed the issue the "Real Issue" as it featured "real" women in the fashion editorials.
