This New "Sports Illustrated" Model Is The Magazine's Curviest Yet

Ashley Graham calls working with the magazine "a dream come true."

Posted on

Graham received significant attention last year for her steamy SwimsuitsforAll ad, which appeared in the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.


Robyn Lawley, technically considered a plus-size model, was photographed for the 2015 issue; however, while "plus-size" starts at a size 8 in the modeling industry, the plus-size market for most women starts at a size 14.

But this year's shoot will actually allow readers to vote for Graham as SI's "Rookie of the Year," which guarantees the winner a spot in next year's issue.

BuzzFeed has reached out to Graham for comment.
