Voluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling
professionally since the age of thirteen. Discovered at a shopping mall
in Nebraska, her stunning face and sexy curves have graced the covers
of top magazines, including Cosmopolitan and British
Vogue, and she was the first size 14 model to appear on the front
of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The
face of brands such as H&M Studio, she is also a judge for the
latest season of America’s Next Top Model. And
that’s only the beginning for this extraordinary

collection of insightful, provocative essays illustrated with a dozen
photos, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are

and her path to accepting her size without limiting her
dreams—defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her
it couldn’t be done. As she talks about her successes and
setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to terms with who
she is, bolster her self-confidence, and motivates her to be her
strongest, healthiest, and most beautiful self.

Jun 02, 2017I received A New Model as a gift, and at first I was reluctant to read it. For me, looking at Ashley Graham i saw what until recently was the norm in the fashion industry- a girl who is a size 10 who models as plus size (sizes 12 and up). What does she know about struggles women like me face? I regret being so judgmental, I pride myself in knowing that one size 16 can look very different from another and yet here I was assuming Ashley wasn't even in the 12-18 size range (which are actually I received A New Model as a gift, and at first I was reluctant to read it.

May 21, 2017I love Ashely and her message, but this book wasn't incredibly well written.

Aug 10, 2017I highly recommend this book for anyone that has ever had issues with body confidence! I know I am guilty of that and I know a lot of women out there can speak for me! Ashley Graham is a pioneer when it comes to accepting our bodies and making ourselves better women inside and out! She questions the pressure that women have of trying to conform to the pressures of being size 2 and speaks about plus size women not having enough access to high end fashion.
June 2, 2017Great book by a wonderful role model. Ashley didn't leave a typical charmed model life growing up, and she doesn't look like your typical stick-thin magazine cover model. But she is every bit as beautiful inside and out, and she has more confidence than most people I know. This book is not only a gr...Full Review
May 29, 2017Great book! As a fellow curvy girl..Ashley is my role model
Feb 01, 2018I find it very sad to live in a world where "fat people" shouldn't be entitled to love themselves, and if you're not skinny you're not meant to love the body you have.

Jul 30, 2017The other reviews for this book seem to be very positive, and I don't know what it is, but it just didn't do it for me.

May 06, 2017I knew of Ashley Graham, but didn't know much of her story before I picked up this book. I was pleasantly surprised that more of it was focused on positive body image and self-esteem instead of the ins and out of the modeling industry. Even though, she is a famous model, her journey is one that a lot of women can relate to.
Jun 22, 2017I listened to the audiobook edition and I was really disappointed that Ashley Graham doesn't narrate the book... she only narrates the intro and outro. Personally, I think autobiography audiobooks are the best when the author reads it. I find it more personal and genuine hearing the author naturally hit the punchlines, sad and happy moments and correctly pronounce names. Every single time the narrator pronounced "Addition Elle" I cringed.

May 16, 2018I love Ashley Graham a lot. I preach a lot that I don't care about my size, that I'm confident in how I look. But we all have bad days. And I loved that she wasn't afraid to talk about them in this book.

May 09, 2017I read this entire book on release date. It was so engaging, I don't know If it's because I've always loved her, but I think I would have fallen in love with her again if I wasn't already. I loved the look into her world. She is 'the' new model. I love it. I think you will too.
Jun 11, 20175 well deserved stars. This was such an empowering, necessary read. Ashley is not shy to admit both her successes and her failures. She discusses her rise to fame, her body dysmorphia and unhealthy relationship to food, her journey to self love, her husband, her family, everything. I couldn't help but cry while reading it. Ashley's affirmations and reassurances remind us that there is #beautybeyondsize indeed.
