The newest SI Swimsuit model is…

In my Washington Post op-ed last year, I challenged Sports Illustrated to take a leap and include more plus-size models among the ranks of its swimsuit beauties:

Modeling agencies have taken the first step [of representing models of various sizes]. Now, companies and designers need to hire these models — women of all sizes. Sports Illustrated just took a step in this direction. Perhaps next time, it will take a leap.

Well, I am pleased to report that they did! Meet the 2016 Rookie of the Year: Ashley Graham!
