More from Variety

Over the course of her career, Graham has been a trailblazer in the fashion industry, serving as an advocate for self-acceptance and female empowerment and leading the conversation on body diversity on the runway, on magazine covers and with brand partnerships.

In 2016, Graham made history as the first size-14 model to land the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue; then she became the first curvy model to receive a major beauty contract as a brand ambassador for Revlon. Graham has been named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list as well as one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People,” among other accolades, including Mattel creating a one-of-a-kind Barbie in her likeness. She has also hosted HGTV’s “Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge,” as well as ABC’s “Countdown to the Oscars.”

Graham currently hosts and executive produces Roku’s “Side Hustlers,” which features female entrepreneurs and small business owners “seeking life-changing advice and investments from the ultimate mentors,” Graham and entrepreneur and investor Emma Grede. The docuseries debuted on the streaming platform on March 1 and has been renewed for a second season coming out later this year. “Side Hustlers” is produced by Hello Sunshine, a part of Candle Media, and Ally Financial with Kimberly Goodman also serving as an executive producer.

This summer, Graham will release her first children’s book, “A Kids Book About Beauty,” which intends to inspire young readers to build their confidence via mantras and affirmations of self-love and body acceptance.

In addition to UTA and IMG, Graham will continue to be represented by the Lede Company.
