Ashley Graham is once again putting her famous curvatures on full show in yet another snap from her third Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editorial — but this beachside spread may be her sexiest one yet.
The 30-year-old model put on a scanty red and white lined thong swimsuit as she struck a pose for her latest shoot with the iconic publication.
In one hot snapshot, Ashley’s legs and bare bottom are covered with wet sand as she looks over her shoulder and gives the camera a come-hither stare.
The Nebraska-native is kneeling on the ground and she is curving her back to show off the strappy backside of her swimsuit.
Ashley took to Instagram on Saturday to post the image and pay homage to her backside.
‘”Show me somethin’ natural like a** with some stretchmarks” OR cellulite,’ she wrote, quoting lyrics from Kendrick Lamar’s hit son ‘Humble.’
The curvy star returned to Instagram on Sunday to post another Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo of herself.
In the photo, Ashley is wearing a skimpy one-piece featuring a bright pink top that is connected to high-waisted maroon bottoms.
The swimsuit, which is a part of her Ashley Graham X Swimsuits For All collection, features a large cut-out on the stomach that gives it the look of a two-piece bikini.
Ashley can also be seen dancing topless in a sultry new video taken when she was shooting her 2018 SI Swimsuit spread while on location on the island of Nevis.
At the start of the video, the brunette beauty is modelling a skimping red bikini featuring white piping, seductively shaking her hips and pulling her swimsuit bottoms down low on her hips.
In another shot, Ashley is topless and covering her bare breasts with her arms as she strikes a pose in nothing but high-waisted swimsuit bottoms.
The curvy star is also shown wearing a yellow Peixoto one-piece that leaves her chest and stomach almost completely bare aside from a strip of fabric that connects the top of the suit to the bottom.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shared the sexy footage of Ashley on Instagram Tuesday, the day the 2018 issue debuted, writing: ‘@theashleygraham is back for a third year with #SISwim. And it might just be her hottest year yet!’
Ashley initially made Sports Illustrated Swimsuit history in 2015 when she became the first plus-size model to appear in an ad featured in the annual issue.
A year after she starred in that unforgettable Swimsuits For All, Ashley earned her own spread and cover, and she is now a regular in the iconic issue.
Instead of posting her own video on her Instagram page on Tuesday, Ashley celebrated Danielle Herrington’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover.
‘DANIELLE!!!! Tears of joy for you this morning! Congratulations on breaking even MORE barriers being the 3rd black woman to ever grace the cover of @si_swimsuit! I have so many emotions,’ she wrote. ‘SOAR BABY GIRL!!’
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit revealed its hotly-anticipated cover on Tuesday morning, unveiling relative newcomer Danielle as the lucky model to land the honor of posing on the front of the issue.
Danielle, 24, became only the third black woman to ever grace the cover of the annual issue, which launched in 1964.
However, she joins a striking pair of women who also boast the accolade: Beyonce appeared on the cover in 2007, while supermodel Tyra Banks was the cover star in both 1996 and 1997.
Danielle first appeared in the magazine’s swimsuit issue last year when she was named as one of the publication’s Rookies.
‘Last year, Danielle was a rookie, and yet already an exemplary model,’ Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editor MJ Day said. ‘She’s an extra hard worker and a natural brand ambassador. All those things separately don’t guarantee a cover, though.
