Ashley Graham just blessed our TikTok feed with an exclusive, unseen pic of her teenage self and we can’t believe our eyes.
The supermodel, who is best known for her two historic SI Swimsuit and Vogue covers in 2016, shared a slideshow on the video-based platform with the first snap as a throwback printed pic. Graham rocked circular metal-rim glasses and a short brown bob with bangs that were cut at an awkwardly short length. The Nebraska native smiled with her teeth barely peeking through and wore a white collared button-up underneath a knit sweater vest—a classic 90s schoolgirl ’fit.
The next photo was a gorgeous and sweet updated selfie of the mom of three, who shares her sons Isaac, Roman and Malachi with husband Justin Ervin. She posed with a big smile and leaned against a tree, wearing chic rectangular glasses and a beige hoodie.
“glow up,” the 36-year-old captioned the post shared with her 1.8 million followers on Jan. 16.
“Ashley, everything is going to come to you when it needs to, you don’t need it all right now. Be patient and know that your body is going to change somebody’s life. So hang in there and don’t let the criticism get to you,” she said as a message she would give to her teenage self, and noted the kindness always wins. “I think something I’ve always garnered from the women around me is kindness. I love a generous, kind person. Whether that’s with their mouth, heart, or actions. I’m always inspired by that and it inspires me to be more kind. Everyone has such a great story and something great to say…especially in fashion. As models, we’re not always able to say what we’re thinking. We’ve been silenced so much! But what an honor to be a part of something that lends a voice.”
