Ashley Graham Says She Got Her First Lingerie Modeling Job At Age 14
Lil’ Becky is plenty thick, but 14?!?!
While many designers, some modelling agencies, and even Vogue magazine have pledged in recent years not to work with models under the age of 16, plus-size model Ashley Graham, 27, says she’s been working since well before that cut-off age – and in her underwear, no less.
One of the stars of Lane Bryant’s new I’m No Angel campaign, the size 16 bombshell recently revealed to Yahoo Style that she’s been stripping down to her skivvies since she was 14.
‘My first job ever was lingerie,’ she says. ‘My mom had to sign a petition that said they would airbrush my nipples out.’
Now in her late 20s, the Nebraska native has made a career of flaunting her voluptuous curves, becoming a regular in plus-size retailer Lane Bryant’s ads and making history as the first plus-size model to appear in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue – but there are plenty of other descriptions she prefers over the term ‘plus-size’.
‘I like curvaceous, sexy, gorgeous hunk o’ woman,’ she says.
AskMen readers seem to agree; the site ranked her number 11 on its list of Outstanding Women of 2015.
Is there anyway in HELL you let your 14-year-old pose for pictures in her draws???
