Model Ashley Graham is no stranger to persistently breaking down traditional — and confining — beauty standards. Between her Sports Illustrated cover and her cameo in a music video from group DNCE, she proves time and again that beauty is not tied to size. And with one of her latest Instagram posts, she has proven this yet again.
According to the Huffington Post, the model posted a beautiful photo her herself riding a bike in a purple embellished tunic — but one that revealed a bit of cellulite on her thigh — and white high-top sneakers.
Accompanying the image was a caption that read, “A little cellulite never hurt nobody.. Stop judging yourself, embrace the things that society has called ‘ugly’. #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize.”
In a world that touts flawlessness, Graham’s latest ‘gram is rather refreshing, reminding us that it’s okay to be perfectly imperfect. In fact, imperfections make you beautiful.
