Sports Illustrated Celebrates Curves and Age in 2016 Swimsuit Issue
This year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is going to feature more than just women size 0. It'll celebrate curves and age as the magazine features a 56 year-old woman and a plus size model.
56 year-old Nicola Griffin dons a gold bikini in the latest issue. "It's never too late to put on a bikini," she wrote on Instagram where she shared her Sports Illustrated photo.
Ashley Graham is also featured, becoming the first plus size model in the swimsuit edition. "This is a dream come true. Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves- our voices were heard," Graham wrote on Instagram.
This isn't the first time Sports Illustrated featured a plus size model in it's swimsuit edition. Graham was in an ad for Swim Sexy in last year's edition that celebrated the fact no one should have to hide their body and usher in The Curvy Girl era.
Philomena Kwao joins Graham and Griffin in this year's Swim Sexy ad in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
You’ve got it ladies, so flaunt it, at any age.
The cover will be revealed Saturday on TNT at 10:30pm. The Swimsuit edition will be available February 16th.
A round of applause for Sports Illustrated recognizing real women have curves and are beautiful at ANY age!
Do you agree with their decision to include Graham, Kwao and Griffin or should they leave well enough alone?
