Graham gets big beauty contract

Ashley Graham is coming to makeup ads near you.

According to Fashionista, the body-positive super model has signed on to participate in Revlon’s “Live Boldly” campaign, joining the likes of actor Gal Gadot and fellow models  Adwoa Aboah, Imaan Hammam and Raquel Zimmerman. In speaking to WWD, Graham showed that she isn’t afraid to admit how excited she is to participate in such a “groundbreaking” campaign.

“Historically, curvy girls are not given beauty contacts,” Graham saidFashionista reports. “It’s kind of groundbreaking, because in my generation of models, this hasn’t happened yet. This is one of those moments where I’m over the moon, I cried a little.”

Joining a campaign that Fashionista says Graham wanted to join the moment she heard the name, the model and author said that the campaign’s theme is in perfect harmony with her personal motto.

“To ‘live boldly” is the mantra of my life. Every day in the mirror I say to myself, ‘I am bold, I am brilliant, I am beautiful,’ and together with Revlon, we can inspire all women to do the same.”
