Other Than Her Beingthan her being judge on American s Next Top Model but I loved her critiues and motivations on the showThis book looked into how she made it into the industry included great tips and advice and I think a genuine presentation of her career and personal journey I knew of Ashley Graham but didn t know much of her story before I picked up this book I was pleasantly surprised that of it was focused on positive body image and self steem instead of the ins and out of the modeling industry Even though she is a famous model her journey is one that a lot of women can relate to I received A New Model as a gift and at first I was reluctant to read it For me looking at Ashley Graham i saw what until recently was the norm in the fashion industry a girl who is a size 10 who models as plus size sizes 12 and up What does she know about struggles women like me face I regret being so judgmental I pride myself in knowing that one size 16 can look very different from another and yet here I was assuming Ashley wasn t Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy even in the 12 18 size range which are actuallyxactly the sizes her body fluctuates in between I was completely wrong and at times she faces struggles than me after all she s in the public ye and with that comes the trolls and fashion industry snobs At one point One of the most outspoken voices gracing the cover of magazines today ncourages women to be their most confident selves recognize their personal beauty and reach for their highest dreams in this wise warm and inspiring memoirVoluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling professionally since the age of thirteen Discovered at a shopping mall in Nebraska her stunning face and sexy curves have graced the covers of top magazines including Cosmopolitan and British Vogue and she was the first size 14 model to appear on the front of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. ,
