When she’s not busy teaching the ladies of America’s Next Top Model how it’s done, Ashley Graham is teaching the world that every body is a bikini body. This time, she’s doing it with the help of her own mother! Ashley’s latest ad campaign for her Swimsuits for All line included her 53-year-old mama, Linda Graham.
The mother-daughter duo hit Morocco to model the latest collection, and the whole shoot is gorgeous. They’re stunning, the camels are stunning, the swim suits are stunning, it’s all…stunning.
Does Ashley’s mom know that they did away with the age limit on this cycle of America’s Next Top Model? Because she is the definition of next level fierce. It looks like we know where Ashley gets it from.
Even though modeling is totally new to Linda, she rocked the shoot like a pro, telling Vogue, “Here I am at 53 years old and in a hot pink string bikini [on set], but I was kind of in love with that swimsuit!” She added that, “It was so comforting having [Ashley] there, making [her] feel comfortable—it’s funny how the tables have turned.”
Not only did the ladies look amazing, they also looked like they had an amazing time together.
I mean, who wouldn’t have fun in Morocco? Even if they had to keep an eye out for “naughty camels…”
Graham told Vogue, “What I want is for women my mother’s age to feel empowered and to know that they too can look just as hot in a one-piece, a two-piece, or string bikini. I believe that beauty is beyond, age, race, or size, and it’s not a trend—at every stage of your life, you can feel beautiful.”
