Ashley Graham covers Maxim Magazine

Ashley Graham, curvy plus size model covers Maxim magazine and she does so in a stunning fashion. Graham is fresh off becoming the first plus size model to cover the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Here she flaunts that gorgeous face and body as she poses nude behind a shirt. If it seems that Graham is every where, it’s just about true and somehow there seems to be more in the works. She’s riding the waves that she started with Lane Bryant and Addition Elle, and SwimsuitsForAll(among others) as they continue to swell. But not everyone is happy though  – maybe Cheryl Tiegs isn’t and some recent posters on Graham’s Instagram site have complained that some of the Maxim photos appear to be overly “photoshopped”.

In the mean time things are going great for Graham and those who support diversity in the modeling industry, and that’s a good thing!
