Ashley Graham was overjoyed to be chosen by Christy Turlington for the Harper’s Bazaar Voices of Hope issue.
The model, 32, features on one of six covers for the issue, which brings together several powerful women in the U.S. discussing racial injustice and the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Ashley stunned in a one-shouldered Proenza Schouler knitted bandage maxi dress, from the designer’s fall/winter show last year, with a signature cut out at the waist, and complemented by a statement gold choker.
The Sports Illustrated star also shared a behind-the-scenes snap of her photoshoot onto Instagram, which was shot over video call app Zoom by photographer Mario Sorrenti.
In the snap, Ashley’s husband Justin Ervin can be seen holding a phone while carrying their five-month-old son Isaac in a front-facing baby carrier, as the model posed on a stairwell.
“Thank you @cturlington for including me alongside this group of incredible women. There are so many reasons I look up to you,” she wrote in the caption. “Your fight for the health and well-being of mothers and children everywhere never stops inspiring me… It has been a trying time for everyone, but my faith in these women and everyone else who is fighting for change is what gives me hope for the future.”
Ashley features in the issue alongside fellow model Christy; chairwoman of New York’s Covid-19 Maternity Task Force Melissa DeRosa; six-time Olympic gold medal-winning runner Allyson Felix; U.S. Representative Lauren Underwood; and public health expert Dr. Leana Wen.
