Model Ashley Graham confirmed that she is officially a 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model, posting a sneak peak on her Instagram on Tuesday.
Adding to her success last year, when she became the first plus-size model to appear in an ad in the magazine’s 2015 issue, the body activist and designer reached another milestone as Sports Illustrated named her 2016 Rookie.
