Ash looks HAWT on the front page, putting some of the attention on her spilling cleavage which she flaunted in a figure-hugging Ashley Stewart bodysuit.
And inside the glossy, the 28-year-old opened up about wanting to just be a called a “model”… without the “plus-size” prefix. She shared:
“Just because I’m not calling myself plus size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is… I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before—a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful.”
Although, talking about how Amy Schumer called out Glamour for grouping her into their plus-size themed issue back in April, the beautiful brunette had this to say:
“I can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry. You thrive on being a big girl, but when you’re grouped in with us, you’re not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard.”
The glossy’s editor-in-chief did share her apologies to the actress, but do U think Ashley has a point?
Read on for even more HIGhlights from her editorial (below):
On the comments remarking on her interracial relationship with husband Justin Ervin: “One comment on Instagram was ‘I knew a girl her size could only be with a black guy.’ I think that’s so ugly. But we talk about the fact that I’m white and he’s black all the time. I’ve seen how racist America is. It’s opened my eyes to how ignorant I have been, how white privilege has taken over a lot of my thoughts and actions because it’s just something that I take for granted.”
On her previous relationship with an alcoholic: “He was abusive in more than one way… He threw a couch on me. He came home drunk. I was sitting on it, and he flipped it upside down. I remember my elbow being jammed but thinking, He didn’t hit me; he was just really angry, you know? You hear stories of women who say the exact same thing—I wasn’t showing up with bruises, he wasn’t beating me every day. Looking back, I should’ve left, but I was an insecure woman in a terrible relationship who did not know herself.”
Wow. So, what do U think of it all??
