Do not call Ashley Graham a 'real woman' — here's why

Ashley Graham’s latest photo shoot for her new Swimsuits for All collaboration has been raising temperatures — but not all the praise is welcome. One outtake in particular from the Miami-based shoot gained attention for its body-positive message. A trio of unairbrushed pics shows the model flaunting her enviable curves — cellulite, dimples, and all. Graham’s fans were quick to pile on the compliments and to praise her beauty and confidence, but some comments fell flat.

According to an Instagram Story posted Monday night, the "America’s Next Top Model" judge doesn’t feel comfortable with remarks like “Now this is what a real woman looks like,” because they’re designed to make other women feel inadequate.
