Ashley Graham knows a thing or two about being sexy!
The brunette bombshell just unveiled her new lingerie collection, Provocative, with Addition Elle as part of her Essentials line ... and she's modeling the barely-there undergarments in a sexy new shoot.
Sporting a number of pieces from the collection, the Sports Illustrated stunner also opens up about the looks in an accompanying video.
"Each piece has a gorgeous geometric shape, a little bit of sexy detail and it's fit for everybody," she says in a promo clip. "I believe beauty is beyond size and I also believe that sexy is a state of mind."
Graham has been very open about her mission to inspire young women who might be struggling with body image.
"I had agents tell me, 'You'll never get on the cover of magazines. You'll never be an editorial model.' I had agents wave money in my face and say, 'If you drop some pounds, you can have a lot more of this!' And not even THAT was something that encouraged me to lose weight!" she told E! News last year. "The moment I realized I had to be healthy and happy in who I was – that's when my career took off."
"I am hopefully going to change the lives of so many different young women," Graham continued. "So many young women who have been told their cellulite is ugly, that their inner thighs that jiggle and touch are ugly – because I have all those things – and I'm on the cover of Sports Illustrated. So they must be beautiful!"
She went on to reveal that her mother has a lot to do with her confidence because she always told her, "You are bold. You are brilliant, and you are beautiful."
"And those are the things I had to tell myself again after I had gained weight in a very healthy way," she admitted. "Now I'm really proud of the woman I've become – 'flaws' and all."
