Beauty Beyond Size
When Ashley Graham became the first size 14 model to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, she broke a barrier many thought impenetrable. That’s what supermodel Ashley Graham does—she tears down the walls that have always existed around curvy women in fashion, showing the world that when it comes to beauty, size is just a number. In the process, she has become a voice for all who don’t fit the old standards of the feminine ideal and a leader in an industry that felt out of step with a majority of real women.
In A New Model, Ashley shares the story of her life and career: from the mall in Nebraska where she was discovered, to her move to New York City as a naïve teenager, to her years as a strictly catalog model whom her agents relied on for revenue but never sent out for runway jobs, and to her decision to break out of the shadows and fight against those who told her she’d never grace a magazine cover. Learn how Ashley has struggled with and been supported by her family; how her husband, Justin, came into her life at a time when she was closed off to love; how she has coped with her issues around food; how the fashion industry lacks understanding of the curvy body; and how faith in a higher power helped her find her center again. This is an honest, inspirational, and surprisingly relatable story of a supermodel, yes—but also of a woman who, like so many, has struggled with rejection, self-confidence, and self-image. Ashley is not afraid to show her real self to the world, on social media, in interviews, and now in the pages of A New Model. Through her actions and by telling her story, Ashley hopes to help every woman be her strongest, most confident, and most beautiful self.

I hope one day she writes a book about her marriage. They're an incredible couple and you just hope to get into their head and their hearts.
