Ashley Graham can now add author to her long list of attributes, with her debut novel A New Model having graced the shelves earlier this week. In an Instagram post to promote her book, the striking model posed in a stylish silk khaki dress. The form-fitting number featured a statement corset belt, which enhanced her enviable hourglass curves and teeny waistline. As ever, the 29-year-old looked positively radiant in the photograph, which displayed her long glossy brown hair worn down in a middle parting in gentle waves that cascaded past her shoulders. Her flawless complexion was highlighted with a touch of rose hued blush, while her lips stood out with a dab of sheer peach gloss. A smoky eye completed her on-trend look beautifully.

Later that evening, Ashely went out to greet fans and sign copies of her book at Barnes & Nobles in TriBeCa, New York. For her public appearance, she turned heads in a semi-sheer figure-embracing dress, featuring a high neck and plunging matte black bodysuit. The ensemble was worn with a pair of black heels with her hair styled in a swooping high ponytail.

A New Model was written by Ashley, comprising of a collection of insightful and thought-provoking essays, where she shares her perspective on body image ideals and encourages women around the world to embrace their beauty.

A true champion for body positivity and equality in the fashion industry, Ashley recently opened up about how her upbringing shaped her confidence, telling Vogue: “ I was raised super Christian, so words have power. You don’t speak bad things in your life. [But] for so long it was like, “You’re so fat, you’re so stupid, you can’t get that job.” I had to check myself—and it’s not easy. First, you write them down. Then the hard part is actually saying them in the mirror. When I came up with “I am bold, I am brilliant, I am beautiful,” I really liked how they were all three different. It was about my brains, it was about my beauty, and it was about being my true self, the boldness.”

Along with writing a book, the last few years have seen Ashley score a starring role in America's Next Top Model under her belt, front a number of high-profile fashion campaigns and empower women the world over. The model was also "thrilled" to have been immortalised in plastic with her very own Barbie doll which she proudly showcased at the Glamour Women of the Year summit in November last year.
