Five SI Swimsuit Models Who Celebrated Their Stretch Marks
It wouldn't be a season of America's Next Top Model without a nude shoot, and lucky for us, judge Ashley Graham wasn't afraid to get in on the action. In a recent episode of the revamped fashion industry staple, Ashley, who serves as a mentor alongside Rita Ora, proved she's an expert at her craft. When a few contests turned out to be camera-shy at the idea of posing sans clothes, Ashley put her inspirational words to action, showing just how good it can feel to put one's so-called imperfections on display for the world to see. I've got curves, I've got cellulite, I've got things that I don't like about myself or that people have told me I shouldn't like about myself," Ashley told the contestants after the shoot. So own your confidence. Catch a preview of Ashley's steamy photo shoot in the clip above, and be sure to tune in all season long to see her expertise in action. ET on VH1. Swim X TRX. Swim Search.

Ashley Graham is no stranger to conquering feelings of vulnerability in front of the camera, having spoken out time and time again about the body-shaming she faces from all sides. Luckily for us, the model isn't shy about sharing her hard-earned wisdom when it comes to shutting out your critics and quieting that nagging self-doubt. Graham's latest feat of inspiration came during a challenge on the current, revamped season of America's Next Top Model , where Graham has been serving as a judge alongside new host Rita Ora. For a recent episode, the contestants had to participate in a nude photo shoot, and the prospect left some of them more than a little camera-shy.
It wouldn't be America's Next Top Model without a nude shoot, and it wouldn't be an America's Next Top Model nude shoot without a few model tear droplets. Current ANTM judge and international supermodel Ashley Graham, who joined the Rita Ora-fronted panel for the series' 23rd and revamped cycle, is set to give the 13 remaining model hopefuls a crash course in posing sans clothing on tonight's episode of the long-running reality series, and EW has an exclusive first look at the steamy session that forces one model to question her standing in the competition. After a quick introduction from Paper creative director Drew Elliot as the ladies enter a studio, a topless Graham poses behind a flowing curtain of stringed pearls. Several ladies among the ANTM cast quickly cozy up next to the plus-sized cover girl, though India, a former bridal consultant, tears up at the prospect. It's just not me," she says, joining the likes of cycle 1's Robin Manning, cycle 2's Anna Bradfield, and cycle 19's Maria Tucker as contestants who infamously refused to pose for the program's nude editorials. Catch a preview of Graham's photo session with the model hopefuls in the exclusive clip below, and tune in tonight to see if India goes through with the shoot.
