Beauty and Distinction
Ashley Graham has been modeling since she was thirteen when she was discovered at a mall. She has lived in New York City -- the fashion mecca for the U.S -- since she became a full-time model at seventeen. Currently, she is signed with Ford's plus division which one of the biggest modelling agencies in the world.
The Nebraskan born model has been featured in ad campaigns for Macy's, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Evans, American Apparel, Target, Old Navy, Kiyonna, Levi's, Liz Claiborne, Marina Rinaldi, Lane Bryant (for 5 years), and for the last three years she has graced the ads of Addition-Elle including television spots. That does not even include the fashion work she has done for magazines like Vogue, Latina, and Glamour.
Now in her early twenties, she is a super model on the rise and extremely in demand but somehow finds the time to be a philanthropist with organizations like Fighting Aids in Africa which works to help children in South Africa. In 2010, she became Ashley Graham Ervin when she married videographer Justin Ervin on August 14, 2010.
Ashley has been quietly making a name for herself in the modeling industry until the fateful day she appeared in a Lane Bryant lingerie commercial that ABC and Fox allegedly refused to air because they felt it was too racy for their viewers (you can view it below if you have not seen it yet or need a refresher) -- unlike all the Victoria Secret ads they already aired. This led to a huge media storm that brought Ashley's image into the forefront making her a new fan favorite in the plus size community which was desperately looking for a replacement goddess for Crystal Renn.

She's certainly a very beautiful woman. I love her look and her vibe, and I love her Freddy Mercury smile!! Her slightly goofy teeth give her an edge! She's a beauty - an inspiration for all young + size girls. I'd never seen her before. Nice Hub.
