A plus-size model who has been dubbed the new Ashley Graham has won her first lingerie campaign – and she even shares the same name as the US star.
Ashley Alexiss, who is based in LA, has just been unveiled as the new face of British brand Lovehoney, starring in a sizzling new shoot just in time for Christmas.
The 26-year-old, who is 5ft 4in and a UK size 16 (US size 12), has previously starred in shoots for Elle, Maxim and Playboy – and is known for her catchphrase: 'Beauty Is Not A Size.'
She has amassed 1.2million followers on Instagram in the past year alone, as well as launching her own swimwear and clothing ranges for curvier women.

Ashley said: 'Every single piece just made me feel so confident. It was great to finally wear something that fit my curves and accentuated them to really make me feel my sexiest.
'Women will be able to look at themselves in the mirror and think 'Damn – I'm hot!''
She added: It's taken a long time. I was bullied terribly growing up for being thicker and am still made fun of to this day.
'But I realised that this is my body, my life and I'm not going to waste it by being miserable because I'm not society's definition of the perfect body. The important thing is that I'm my own definition, and that's enough for me.'
