Kim Kardashian once picked spinach out of Ashley Graham's teeth and it's so relatable
With diversity beginning to be championed in previously conservative fields, it appears that the people who promote alternative beauty ideals are finally being given their dues. Certainly, Ashley Graham has been making waves in the fashion industry since the early Noughties, and now she's on track to be the first plus-sized supermodel.
Earlier this year, she was the first plus-sized model to make it onto Forbes' annual list of the highest-earning models in 2017, and it doesn't look as if her star is going to burn out anytime soon.
In fact, she's so much of a star these days that she once got Kim Kardashian to pick spinach out of her teeth. I mean, if that's not #LifeGoals, what is?
The model has joked that the inspiration behind her new podcast, Pretty Big Deal, was to tell the world that Kim Kardashian - the veritable queen of social media - once picked spinach out of her teeth on the Met Gala red carpet.
The 31-year-old recalled the incredibly awkward moment while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel. Speaking about the podcast, and inviting Kim to be a guest on it once more, Graham explained;
"Nowadays models have a platform and we have something we want to say and we want our voices to be heard, and I wanted to interview people who also had something to say so we could have dialogue... errr Kim Kardashian picked spinach out of my teeth!"
"So when she [Kim] came on [my podcast] was fangirling, and while I was fangirling I was like, 'you picked spinach out of my teeth'. She was like, 'Girl I wasn't going to let you walk around the Met with spinach in your teeth'," she continued.
Remembering the actual moment, which took place at the Heavenly Bodies-themed Met Gala earlier this year, she elaborated: "I'm at the Met, I have spinach in my teeth and we're hanging and she was literally like, "you have spinach in you teeth" and gets it out, like that! And the whole time I was like, how can I get this out to the world so I tweeted it and then she came on my podcast."
It sure must be good to know that Kim Kardashian has your back, Ashley...
In related news, Graham recently made an appearance on Gwyneth Paltrow's podcast, Goop. In the episode, she opened up about meeting her husband of eight years, filmmaker Justin Ervin, and how they waited until marriage to have sex.
The story was so sweet that it left Paltrow in tears.
Graham started her story by telling the actress and entrepreneur that she had been dating a "terrible guy" in her early 20's, who was "mentally, physically, emotionally abusive." She explained that she remained in the relationship for two years, one of which was kept secret as she didn't know her "worth".
She finally broke up with him, however, and it was then that Graham began to appreciate her value.
"I knew that I was a stronger woman for breaking up with him, and in feeling stronger for breaking up with him I was like, 'What is it that I need to do to change myself so I don't get back into that situation?'" she disclosed. "And in that 'aha' moment, I was like, my problem is I keep giving it up too soon, I keep having sex too soon with these guys."
Whatever works for you, Ashley!
