Ashley Graham has hit a major milestone in her modelling career, posing for a high fashion editorial with Fashion Unfiltered.

Sharing a sneak peek with her 2.6 million Instagram followers, Graham wrote: “And they said I wasn’t an editorial girl... #slay #beautybeyondsize.”

The photo, below, shows the 28-year-old posing nude with minimal makeup and a bright red wig.

Speaking to The Huffington Post UK, Graham said she felt she had been “brainwashed” into calling herself plus sized in the past.

“I still stand firm on believing that labels don’t need to be involved with anything - especially when you’re describing a woman,” she said.

Graham has a lot to celebrate right now, along with her new editorial she has also just launched her third ‘essentials’ lingerie collection with Addition Elle (pictured above).

This year the body positive activist was named one of the most influential models in the world by The Business of Fashion - which profiles the people currently shaping the global style industry.
