Ashley Graham Rules LAX Without a Stitch of Makeup

At a time when coiffed bombshell manes and contoured features are duking it out with bedhead and no-makeup makeup for the definitive beauty trend of the moment, Ashley Graham straddles both ends of the aesthetic spectrum with the ease of a style icon in the making.

Sure, the model has long catapulted her status from curvy swimsuit pinup into an entirely new body-positive stratosphere with a swagger that practically begs for an artful contouring job and a few flicks of a curling iron. And yet, Graham’s fresh-faced turn at LAX yesterday was a testament to the art of less is more.

Snapped with a glowing complexion unencumbered by camera-ready foundation in favor of a dewy smattering of freckles, Graham not only made the case for a moisturizing in-flight sheet mask, but reminded legions of fans that the prettiest beauty move can come down to championing good skin over elaborate camouflage. Now that the sunny season is off to a balmy start, how’s that for a midweek makeup shake-up?
