Sports Illustrated has just revealed the cover star for it’s 2016 swimsuit issue — actually, this year, they’ve crowned three.
It’s the first time, in more than 50 years, that the magazine has multiple cover models, but more than that, it’s also the first time a plus-sized woman has been featured on the front page.
That woman is 28-year-old Ashley Graham, a size 16 model and outspoken advocate for body positivity.
If you don’t know her, you can check out this clip from her 2015 Tedx Talk.
Graham posted a snap of the cover on her Instagram, saying she was “truly speechless”.
“This cover is for every woman who felt like she wasn’t beautiful enough because of her size,” she wrote.
“You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to.”
