Sports Illustrated is breaking down stereotypes in this year’s 2016 Swimsuit Edition.

This year the magazine will feature new faces, body sizes and even new ages.

Ashley Graham was named the magazine’s Rookie of the Year, and is the first ever plus sized model in the issue. Graham is a size 16 and is a part of the magazine’s #swimsuitsforall campaign.

Graham shared her excitement on Instagram, posting:

“It’s official – I’m a@si_swimsuit model!! This is a dream come true. Thank you to everyone who stood up for curves- our voices were heard and together we can help me win Rookie of the Year. Stay tuned for voting instructions #beautybeyondsize#siswim.”

Sports Illustrated also included curvy model Philomena Kwao, and 56-year-old Nicola Griffin who shows off her curves and silver hair.

Other favorites posing include Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Ronda Rousey and Barbara Palvin.
