Cape Town – Ashley Graham is baring it all in the new summer issue of V magazine.

The American model is changing the path for young models and tells Tracee Ellis Ross about her mission to be a good role model in a new interview with the fashion mag.

In a seductive black and white photo shoot by Maria Sorrenti, Ashley shows off her curves in nothing but a mesh top in some snaps and in others only a small piece of black cloth.

When talking to Tracee about body image, Ashley instantly shows how passionate she is about the subject. She said: “I grew up in a very Christian home, so words have power. I took that with me into every area of my life. If you say, “I’m fat,” that’s how you’re going to feel. If you say, “I’m stupid,” that’s how you’re going to start your day.

“I wake up sometimes and I feel like the fattest person alive, but I’m not going to let that affect the rest of my day. Say to yourself, ‘I like this day. I am bold, I am beautiful, and I am brilliant.’”

Another thing Ashley is passionate about is not being bothered by cellulite. She explained to Tracee when she first discovered she had cellulite, “I remember telling my mom, “Isn’t it disgusting? It’s so ugly.” She pulled her pants down and said, “Look, I have it, too.”

Following the revelation Ashley decided to never let it define her or her body image. Ashley said: “It doesn’t define my worth. If women like you and me continue to preach that, then I feel like younger girls are going to grasp it and they’re going to be like, “Who cares!”
