Ashley Graham Throws Shade At Victoria’s Secret And The Internet Applauded
has never been shy about calling out ridiculous beauty standards in the fashion industry, which is why she had no qualms about throwing shade at Victoria’s Secret for their lack of curvy models on the runway.
Graham shared an image of herself in lingerie walking down the 2016 Addition Elle runway, with angel wings photoshopped behind her.
“Got my wings!
.. my #AdditionElle wings!” the plus-size model captioned.
In response to
Graham’s Instagram post, a number of fans applauded her body-positive message and asked Victoria’s Secret to do better.
“You are so
beautiful and amazing thank you for standing up for all us thick girls,” one wrote.
“I’m getting fed up with not seeing curvy girls on their runway. @victoriassecret listen to what women are asking for, or at least, think how much $ you could profit if you bring in ‘plus sizes.’ Or do you intentionally want to keep curvy women out of your stores?”
Graham is clearly
working to change today’s narrow and harmful beauty ideals and people are loving her for it.
