While Ashley Graham stripped down for her first Maxim cover, some fans are concerned the images have been stripped of their authenticity.
Shot after shot, this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl and famed plus size model is photographed wearing next to nothing in a series of images for the April issue. Whether she's wearing a sexy lingerie set or covering her bust with nothing but a white collared shirt—or a pair or men's hands—the 28-year-old stunner looks confident as she proudly flaunts her figure.
While many fans are happy to see a curvier physique on the cover and pages of the popular magazine, some are questioning whether the images have been altered by Photoshop. However, the man behind the shoot, famed high-fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, is taking the criticism into his own hands.
