Ashley Graham is the world’s most famous and most-loved plus size model.
The 30-year-old shot to worldwide fame as the first plus-sized model to ever appear in the Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit edition.
She was a size 14 when the swimsuit campaign was shot and instantly captured the attention – and hearts – of men and women around the world.
Her honesty about her body and confidence has been a refreshing breath of air in the once-stuffy modelling industry.
But how much in Ashley worth now she’s a global star?
Since shooting to fame ten years ago, Ashley has appeared on the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle.
The star’s net worth is allegedly a whopping $1m, according to celebritynetworth.com. In GBP that’s a staggering £750k.
A fine amount that’s not to be sniffed about – and how brilliant for someone who put their neck on the line as one of the first plus sized models to pave the way for other women.
At the beginning of the year Ashley spoke to Vogue about how she would like to see the fashion world develop.
She said: “When we’re supposed to be talking about diversity for women, it feels so divisive and purpose-defeating, giving us yet another label.
“Meanwhile, those girls between the sizes of UK 8 and 14 have no modelling jobs.
“They might do random lingerie or swimsuit, but they’re not big enough for catalogue, and no way do they do runway.”
And it would seem Ashley’s upbringing with a strong mother at the helm of her family has shaped the way she now lives her life.
She told the magazine: “We were also brought up in a Christian household where words had power. Mom would say, ‘If you call yourself fat, you’re going to be fat, if you say you’re stupid, you’re going to be stupid.’
“Knowing we had to watch what we said shaped and moulded me.
“Women can negatively compete with each other, going ‘Oh, I’m so fat’, or ‘Oh god, my butt’s so big!’ Well, my baby sister and I, we walked around the house naked, there was never any of that.”
