Ashley Graham reveals why she loves to walk around the house naked
Ashley Graham has been making waves in the fashion industry since the early Noughties, and now she's on track to be the first plus sized supermodel. Certainly, diversity is beginning to be championed in formerly conservative fields, and the people who promote alternative beauty ideals are finally being given the attention they're due. Case in point: Forbes' list of the highest-earning models of 2017 included a plus-sized model - Graham - for the first time in industry history.
This is not the only success that the 30-year-old has had this year, however. Ashley Graham made history yet again during New York Fashion Week's Fall 2018 season, when she opened her first show at Christian Siriano's 10th Anniversary bash - and naturally, she looked amazing. Now, while you'd expect the curvy model to celebrate by popping some champagne and taking a well-deserved rest, it appears that she has a more unconventional way of commemorating her achievements.
While it's no secret that Ashley Graham loves putting her curves on display, you may be surprised to hear that the beauty enjoys walking around her home stark naked.
Though this may sound downright uncomfortable to you and I, Graham and her husband of seven years, Justin Ervin, do so for a very good reason: to spice up their sex life. Speaking to The New York Post, Graham said "We like to walk around the house naked together. It keeps things fresh".
And in conversation to the Telegraph last month, the plus-sized model expanded on her nudist tendencies, explaining that it's just more "comfortable" and natural to her. "Not every woman is like this, not every model is like this, but I’m a special case in that I would walk around butt-naked if I could, because it’s just more comfortable for me," she asserted.
The Lincoln, Nebraska native remains a passionate advocate for body positivity. "You have to continue to talk about it," Graham said in a recent interview. "I have always believed that skin colour is not a trend, age is not a trend, and my size is not a trend. And that’s why I believe that right now, this can’t be a trend—if our voices are heard loud and clear, it won’t be."
Going on to stress that she's one of the few models representing a majority market, Graham stated:
"Sixty-seven percent of the women in America wear a size 14 or larger, sixty-seven percent. Maybe you could ignore those consumers before, but now, thanks to social media, they’re making their voices heard. Women are demanding that brands give them what they want. And what they want is to be visible."
While it's pretty unusual that Ashley Graham enjoys walking around butt-naked, let's face it - if we looked like her, we'd be getting our kit off all the time...
