Take it from her, a size-inclusive activist who exemplifies how the fashion industry is changing and how prioritizing comfort doesn’t mean sacrificing style.

Here, she describes her start as a model, her off-duty look and the desert island beauty products she can’t live without.

"My Style is comfort paired with cool factor -- a statement piece."

Q & A With Ali

Describe your personal style.

For me, comfort holds the top priority (I know, not cool). Comfort would be followed swiftly by cool factor, like a statement piece. An example would be a badass pair of flare jeans, some vintage clogs, and a little crop top with an outlandish jacket.

When not working, what is your absolute favorite thing to do?

Nature! Always nature. Throw in a little yoga in nature, and I am one happy girl. I also love to have a cuddle with my man.

How did you get into modeling?

I entered a modeling competition when I was studying abroad in London. I was only supposed to be there one year, and I never came home because I started working as a model. I quit soccer and completely changed my life- I never looked back!

How has the industry changed since you started?

The industry has changed so much since I started. It's so much more inclusive than it used to be, and the scope of jobs available to curvy girls has increased so much. It's a real improvement, but we could always do better. I want curvy girls to book some badass campaigns for top fashion houses in the upcoming year.

Career highlight?

Booking a few Mango campaigns, editorial in ID magazine, shooting with David Sims- twice. It's hard to choose, but those are the first that come to mind.

Biggest challenge you face as a model.

Even six years on, the tiredness from the travel is hard for me to deal with. I am always bouncing from one timezone to another and that has had an effect on my health. I also miss my friends and family because I'm always away!

Your desert island beauty products?

Rose water, organic sunscreen, vitamin C oil, and coconut oil, for simply everything from hair to food.
