Former model Cheryl Tiegs does not agree with full-figure model, Ashley Graham’s appearance on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Many people have praised the magazine for featuring Graham on the cover but Tiegs seriously disagrees with that choice. Tiegs has appeared in the magazine several times and made sure her opinion on the issue was known while walking the red carpet on Wednesday at the 13th Annual Global Green USA Pre-Oscar Party.
“I don’t like that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them and your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That’s what Dr. Oz said, and I’m sticking to it,” she said to a surprised reporter. “No, I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run.”
Graham is the first full-figured model to snag a cover of the swimsuit issue. Ronda Rousey and Hailey Clauson also have their own covers of the magazine.
