How hot does Ashley Graham look in this ad, which is running in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit?

It's a pretty big moment for annual bikini bonanza issue, because it's the first time they've ever run an ad featuring a plus-sized model. The 27-year-old, who's a size 16, models a sexy black two piece for swimsuitsforall, an online swim retailer.

"I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt," Graham said in a statement about the campaign. "The world is ready for more curves in bikinis. swimsuitsforall helps women feel confident and sexy in swimsuits and I am so thrilled to be a part of the #CurvesinBikinis campaign!"

The model recently discussed how we need more plus sized role models. "Jennifer Lawrence is the media's poster girl for curves--she's tiny!" Ashley says.

Well, thanks to Ashley's killer curves and confidence, we can now look up to her!
