The model appears on the cover of August's Cosmo magazine.
Curvy model Ashley Graham appears on the August issue of Cosmopolitan and has taken the opportunity to speak out and criticise Amy Schumer on her 'double standards' when it comes to being a plus size icon. The comedian recently showed some anger in being featured in Glamour magazine's special 'plus size' issue.
Ashley Graham says Amy Schumer's comments show double standards
The 27-year-old recently featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and she's always been extremely open about promoting body confidence among young women. Amy Schumer has been too, but when she was mentioned among other curvaceous celebrities in the Special Edition of Glamour earlier this year (of which Ashley Graham also appeared on the cover), she was rather vocal about not wishing to be classed as plus size - despite the fact that a lot of her humour relies on her curvy body shape.
The 'Trainwreck' star claimed that the magazine used her name without her permission in a special 'plus size' issue, and says that she doesn't even qualify as such.
Amy Schumer has criticised Glamour magazine for featuring her name in their new issue that focusses around ‘plus size women’ in the entertainment, modelling and music industries.
The American comedian and actress’s name is included on the front cover of the special edition of the magazine, alongside those of Adele and Melissa McCarthy, while model Ashley Graham adorned the cover itself in a red dress.
However, Schumer took exception to the way the issue was packaged, and said that Glamour had included her name on the front cover without her permission while putting her 2015 feature from the main magazine in the special issue.
