Plus size model, body activist and total babe Ashely Graham continues to break barriers. Graham, who was the first plus size model to grace the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition , ecently added a New York Magazine to her already impressive resume. But aside from absolutely slaying her 1940s-style shoot , Graham also openly discussed how white privilege has played a roll in her success as a plus size model. “I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege,” said Graham in the feature. “To not see black or Latina women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me.” While we love Graham and her messages of body positivity and female empowerment, we’d also love to see more curvy women in the spotlight.

Dressed in cute little gowns and with carefully chosen props, the babies depicted Ariel from “The Little Mermaid,” Snow White, Aurora from “Sleeping Beauty,” Cinderella, Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” and Jasmine from “Aladdin.” A mother of three and a Disney fan herself, Marie drew inspiration from the movies which she said were “a big part of her life.” “ The amazing tales of love and heroism have always been an inspiration to me and now I see them inspiring my girls,” she told Yahoo Canada. The shoot in her Roseville, Calif. studio took eight hours to complete. While she describes the experience of working with six babies simultaneously as “very difficult,” the results and the reactions from the moms were worth it. “ They loved the whole experience! It was fun seeing them dote over their little princesses during the shoot,” she said. “They loved the images I released to them and they are having so much fun with seeing them all over the internet!” Click through the gallery above to see the adorable photos and let us know what you think by tweeting us @YahooStyleCA .

Hot summer days conjures images of sleeveless sun dresses and airy tank tops for some, but for others, the heat means sweltering under cardigans and jean jackets. Stylist and community manager of plus-sized styling company Dia&Co , Ashby Vose, is only too familiar with the problem. The body positive brand, which offers a personal stylist service that sends clients packages of curated clothes in sizes 14 and up, gets plenty of requests from their plus-size clients for layers and jackets even in the summer. “We hear a lot from our customers and our community about creative ways to hide their arms,” Vose tells Allure . “It got us chatting. We talked about our own experiences with our arms and our preferences for layering up even though it’s hot… We had to do something to liberate our community and that arms are not a source of shame.” So to encourage women to stop hiding their arms, Dia & Co launched their #DiaARMy Instagram campaign, asking women to flaunt their biceps and triceps and embrace sleeveless styles. And the response is gorgeous!
