Her first, shockingly.

It's not hard to see that Ashley Graham is unquestionably and classically beautiful, so it comes as a shock that she's never gotten a beauty contract—until now. Today, it was announced that Graham has joined beauty brand Revlon's "Live Boldly" campaign, sharing the limelight with other inspiring faces like Adwoa Aboah and Gal Gadot.

In a statement to WWD about the campaign, Graham noted that "Historically, curvy girls are not given beauty contacts,” continuing on to say “It’s kind of groundbreaking, because in my generation of models, this hasn’t happened yet. This is one of those moments where I’m over the moon, I cried a little.” According to the model herself, she signed just upon hearing the campaign's name. "The average American woman is a size 14 and if you ask me, lipstick does not have a size," Graham continued. It comes as a surprise to all of us that this is Graham's first foray into beauty; we doubt it will be the last.
