Ashley Graham plus size beauty for Bare Necessities

Ashley Graham has established herself as one of the most recognizable plus size models today. Her stunning beauty is clearly evident and  she has the curves to round out the package. Ashley is seen here for Bare Necessities in a swimsuit that fits her to a T. Throw in it’s reptilian-like  dark red and black pattern, and this size 16 beauty will definitely impress when she hits the scene.

We also love her hair and make-up combo here. It pulls everything together in a glowing yet subtle style.

See Ashley Graham’s main page for more plus size beauty.
