In an interview with Vogue, she said that she had used her body as a tool to talk about taboo subjects, such as cellulite or lower belly fat. She also said that she thought that her body changed the lives of many people. Graham doesn’t prefer calling “plus-size” because she thinks that when one uses this word they put all those women in a category.
