She’s continued to break boundaries and glass ceilings while championing body-positivity. Graham has made it a point to encourage brands to recognize a wide range of sizes.

"I couldn't find things that fit me the way I wanted them to, and I couldn't find designs that made me feel special, that made me feel like I'm a fashion girl."

Graham told Glamour in an interview.

"There's always a question of what do you want us to retouch, and what do you want us to take out? And I said, 'Nothing,’" except from a clamp holding up the DIY backdrop," she said. "I want everybody to know genuinely... I want people to see who I am because everybody has a story."

Pop Culture" quotes Graham's interview with "People."
