Plus-size model Hunter McGrady becomes Sports Illustrated’s curviest model wearing only body paint


Meet Hunter McGrady the model who is about the become the new face of the revolution.

It was only a year ago that new America’s Next Top Model star Ashley Graham made headlines by appearing as the magazine’s first plus-size model addition.

But now she’s ready to share the crown.

Hunter is joining the revolution with a 46“ bust, 38” waist, and 52“ hips.

The Rookie of the Year was only wearing body paint which took 12 hours to create a stunning tie-dye effect for her beach shoot.

At one point, she’s even in the water. Now that is brave and oozes confidence and we’re totally here for it.

”Women, for anyone who has ever felt uncomfortable or insecure because of rolls, or stretch marks, or cellulite, or acne, or felt like you didn’t measure up because you weren’t represented in the magazines — THIS IS FOR YOU! You are beautiful. You are STRONG. You are powerful and together we need to lift each other up and inspire one another. There’s too much going on on this world to let each other fall by the waste side,” she wrote.

Hunter also shared a pretty special snap with Ashley Graham, who has paved the way over the last 12 months for curvy models, as she said: “We’re here to stay”.

This is a surreal moment for me. You guys I have been bursting to tell you all about this! I want to thank @MJ_Day for an opportunity like this to do the SI model search and for being a force in this industry and everyone at @si_swimsuit for promoting that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Beauty is not a number. It has no limits. I have never felt sexier than I did in this shoot. Thank you to @joannegair and team @therealmarissajade and @trendytribals for working your magic on my body. These women painted this suit for 12 hours and I never wanted to take it off.
