“If you ask me, lipstick does not have a size.”

The last couple of years have been incredibly busy for model Ashley Graham. A Barbie doll was created in her honour, she made the Forbes highest-paid model list and opened the 2017 LOVE advent calendar to just name just a few of her achievements.

And 2018 is shaping up to be just as big for Ashley with the announcement that – among her other projects – she’s joined Revlon’s Live Boldly campaign.

With the message of women-supporting-women, Revlon has brought an inspiring team on board, including brand ambassador Gal Gadot, Model of the Year Adwoa Aboah, Imaan Hammam and Raquel Zimmerman all joining Ashley in the campaign.

According to Women’s Wear Daily, Ashley is one of the first industry standard plus-size models to land a beauty contract.

“Historically, curvy girls are not given beauty contracts,” says Graham. “It’s kind of ground breaking, because in my generation of models, this hasn’t happened yet…If you ask me, lipstick does not have a size.”

Ashley says she’s over the moon to have the beauty contract. And we can’t think of anyone more deserving.
