There has always been a certain amount of pressure on women in the entertainment industry to look good but it seems that in recent years, with the way the internet has developed, that there is more pressure than ever before for women all over the world to make sure that they look a certain way, which is not entirely fair.
While we are seeing more and more plus size models coming on to the scene, showing that you do not have to be stick thin anymore, there is still pressure to look good. Ashley Graham is one of the biggest and best models on the planet, and Ashley has stated that she wants to encourage more women to love the body they have.
Graham was chatting to InStyle, when she said, "I think that a lot of women judge themselves and they judge themselves on the way that they look, whether it’s skin, age, race, size, class, all of it. And if you saw just the woman in the mirror and you really accepted her for who she was and you started looking at yourself as a role model, that might change your life."
She also revealed her own body inspiring moment, adding, "When I sat down and took a photo of my cellulite and posted it on Instagram. I think there’s nothing more real than that. It’s there. I’m not afraid to talk about it. I’m not afraid to show it. And I don’t think that other women should be ashamed of theirs as well."
It is always nice to see and hear from a top model when it comes to body issues but, when they are getting paid to show off their body, it is a case of much easier said than done.
