May I introduce you to the absolutely gorgeous Ashley Graham?
Okay, story time.
So... Being a sensitive male of the 21st century, I often find myself roped into going shopping with Better Half when her girlfriends are otherwise occupied. I don't have much to contribute to the 'what not to wear' conversation, but I try to nod and smile in the right places.
So, while Better Half goes on an extended tour of narnia in the dressing room, I have looooooots of free time to stare at the walls outside... Now, over the months, I couldn't help but start to recognize one of the models in the posters on the walls. It was bizarre- whatever department store we went to, she would pop up somewhere. (Yes, I had a LOT of time to ponder this...)
...Some clever google work later, I've identified this mystery women as plus-size model Ashley Graham: our featured model this week!
Ain't she cute? :D While she's not an adult model, she has been known to show some skin!
Oh, and speaking of showing too much, it seems that Ashley starred in a fairly controversial lingerie ad. For a wile, this Lane Bryant ad was banned from TV. Basically, because she was showing too much cleavage.
Not really much worse than most ads, right? Let's recap. She was showing too much cleavage. Because her boobs are bigger. Because she's... y'know, a size 16.
Oh god! A real woman! A bigger girl with curves! ON TELEVISION! HOW WILL WE SURVIVE?!? Apparently she thought the whole thing was hilarious, but a lot of guys & dolls wrote her to show their support. That makes me happy, y'know?
Oh heck, one more vid and then we out.
And for more of this classy lady in her own words, you can follow her twitter.
Time to revisit some old beloved features on this blog... and some of our beloved inspirational beauties!
It should be no surprise to readers of this blog that the author is a HUGE fan of Scarlett... the original big booty queen.
Her longevity continues to be a beautiful and curvy presence in the scene. I recently discovered her twitter account, where she's been posting some candid pics!
Introducing a new feature here at the Radish Room: we've been known to give homage to our favorite inspirational beauties, but now its time for a shout out to those in the artsy biz- those artist who have been a torch for the the author. And this week, to inaugurate things, we go to the OG hisself... Paolo Serpieri, the author of the a-freaking-mazing Druuna series!
Who is Druuna? Well...
Serpieri is a master of the art. I love the amazing detail he manages to cram into every square inch of his work... which is maybe why he only publishes like, once a decade. -_-*
But Druuna was my original sexy comic heroine love. It's incredibly sexual, with men, women, monsters, mutants, robots, anything that moves (or not!). I can not express enough just how good & titilating the series is...check it out, yo!
