  • 'Stop judging yourself'

    Not too many models would post a picture of their cellulite on social media — but that’s exactly why we love plus-size model Ashley Graham. Yesterday Ashley posted a selfie on Instagram, jubilantly riding a bicycle and waving to someone off-camera, with the caption: ‘A little cellulite never hurt nobody. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called “ugly.” #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize.’

    We would not have even noticed until Ashley pointed it out herself but she’s proudly showing cellulite on one of her legs — and she looks fabulous. Because duh.

    Ashley Graham, need we remind you, is a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model who inspires us all with her TED talk about body positivity and her plus-size lingerie line. In other words, she is exactly the person we would expect to show us how super-hot we are au naturelle.

    We can only hope other young women (and men — heck, guys get cellulite, too) see Ashley’s Insta snap and remember that even supermodels have so-called ‘flaws.’ The modelling world is a better place because people like her are in it.
