Ashley Graham to appear at MOA today for Lane Bryant reopening
When Lane Bryant accused Fox and ABC of refusing to play its lingerie commercial because it was a little too busty for their national audiences, plus-size model Ashley Graham's voluptuous bod became big news. Now you can see Graham in the flesh during her appearance at the Mall of America today.
Graham, the model featured in the controversial ad, along with Lane Bryant models Tonya Pittman and Lizzie Miller will be at the Lane Bryant store's reopening from 6-9 p.m.
The commercial hoopla came after Lane Bryant called out the networks for displaying near-naked women on shows like "Dancing With the Stars," but refusing to show a sexy commercial with a plus-size model. The networks said it was all a publicity stunt. If it was, it worked.
