Ashley Graham Named World’s Sexiest Woman in 2023, and Other Beauties Who Made the List
Leaving big names behind, Ashley Graham, the famous American model and TV host, just scored a major win by being crowned the sexiest woman in the world. What’s even more impressive is that she’s the first-ever plus-sized model to rock the cover of Maxim’s Hot 100 issue. Check out which other famous beauties made it to the top of the list!
Ashley signed her first modeling contract at the age of 13.
Graham, who was born in Nebraska, started modeling when she became a teenager and has since become a trailblazer for body positivity and inclusion in the industry. She has appeared on the covers of multiple renowned fashion magazines and modeled for prestigious international designers.
While doing all that, the 35-year-old also rocks the role of being a mama to 3 wonderful kids, and she never holds back from sharing the ups and downs of parenting with the world.
She believes sexiness is not about size or shape, but about confidence.
Ashley opened up about her personal life in the interview with Maxim. She also talked about her role models, challenges, and goals. “I hope this inspires more women to embrace their curves and their beauty... I look up to women who are fearless and authentic.”
She admits she’s faced a lot of rejection and criticism in her career because of not fitting into the “ideal” beauty standards. “I’ve been told I’m too fat, too old, too this or that. But I’ve learned to turn those negatives into positives. I’ve learned to love myself and celebrate my uniqueness.”
