In 2009 Graham, who was the most popular curvy model of the moment, met Ervin in a church. First they were just friends, but only a year later the couple said “yes, I want”. In a 2016 interview with the Canadian edition of Elle magazine, the model said they both waited to get married before having sex. And he added not having had the feeling of wasting time, quite the opposite, he maintained that his marital life is “incredible.” “My husband and I wait. Call me crazy, but it worked. Now the sex is amazing! When we were dating, I felt that it was I who had the power. He respected me more because he was not willing to give me easily,” she said. “I always tell my friends to wait three months before bed with someone, and if that person can wait, then in a good boy. I want to make it clear that it is not a rule that should apply to everyone, but for me it was well, “he stressed.
In 2017, the top directed four women in a photo shoot, in which they agreed to show off their body covered only by lingerie for a video of Glamor magazine. “To not feel self-conscious when I am in a photo shoot I never touch the parts of my body that I don’t like. Otherwise, I put my hands on my breasts or torso. That makes me feel more comfortable in front of the camera,” he explains. Graham on the recording. In that same graphic session, the women who appear – and who do not engage in the model profession – claimed diversity with phrases like these: “I should stop worrying about what other people think” or “I should be more motivated. Never I had felt this way. I always feel too big, “while they were gaining security and confidence.
Graham ends the video with a message: “There are people who believe that the revolution of the body and the way we see it is just a trend. But is not. If we continue to promote the topic, if we put into check what society has long called ugly, then things will begin to change. This is how a declaration of intent is made, this is how we normalize things that we had been told before that were not right. ” At the end of the powerful message, the model that has occupied covers in renowned magazines such as Vogue or Sport Illustrated breaks into tears, excited for what they have experienced and for the challenges that still lie ahead.
Since the beginning of his career, the top has added outstanding achievements in the fashion industry: covers of large headers, parades, campaigns for important firms. Thus, it has consolidated its own revolution regarding the acceptance of different canons of beauty and measures on the catwalk.
