If being comfortable in your own skin is a revolution, these two models can bring their revolution to every corner of the globe — and that’s exactly what they’re doing.
According to Cosmopolitan, models Ashley Graham and Paloma Elesser are sharing the cover of Vogue Arabia‘s July/August issue, dubbed their “Body Revolution” issue as it boasts “The best summer looks to celebrate all shapes.” While both look just as stunning in silver in their shared cover as they do in their close-up solo covers, what they said inside the magazine is just as eye-catching.
Cosmo says Graham discussed how she believes making people feel good and comfortable in their own skin is something of a “calling” for her.
“My mother told me that when I walked into a room, I would greet every single person — even at three years old. It was more of an emotion that I would give people, and it would leave them feeling good about who they are,” she explained. “I think that’s what I’m doing today: letting women know that they are worthy, that they are beautiful, and that they can be happy with who they are in their skin.”
Elesser, however, took her turn to describe how she has come to accept herself, which has everything to do with how she manages her feelings about her body and nothing to do with changing who she is.
“The feelings that I have about my body today aren’t very different from the way I felt about it in first grade,” she said, according to Cosmo. “What has changed is the way I navigate those feelings.”
