Model and all-around beautiful human Ashley Graham turns 30 today—and let’s be real, she just keeps getting better.
Graham is basically the girlfriend we all need. While
most of us all of us crave her social media pep talks IRL, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever share actual human space with her. But don’t fear: our body-positive girl has got us covered with the release of her memoir, A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like (HarperCollins, $34) which is the next best thing to actually being BFFs with Graham. The powerful book is a collection of personal essays about her life before modelling, her journey to body acceptance and her thoughts on how the world can be a more loving place. In other words, it makes us wanna love ourselves as much as we love her. To celebrate the book’s release, here’s 10 times our fave gal Graham got really real on Instagram.
