Who would have thought that you could earn a living with your hands, and absolutely doing nothing with them. Ashly Covington is one of the most successful models of our time, but you will never see her on the covers of famous publications and advertisements, except perhaps a small part of her body. For the past 14 years, Ashley Covington has been working as a professional hand model full-time. Due to her specific profession, Ashley is forced to almost always wear gloves so as not to damage her hands. With her irresistible hands, she replaced the hands of such famous women as Adriana Lima, Brooke Shields and Charlize Theron on advertising posters. Also, her hands managed to light up in the advertisements of such famous brands as Dior, Maybelline, Rolex and Sephora.

And these are the hands with which Ashley earns her living by posing for advertising agencies.

You could see her hands in the advertisements of popular brands such as Dior, Maybelline, Rolex and Sephora.
During her career as a hand model, Ashley's hands have never had to touch anything, for example, she holds a snake in her hands.
Ashley herself lives in New York, but she often has to make long flights around the country to take part in the next filming.
Her hands are used to advertise anything.

Sometimes Ashley even has to replace the hands of famous women during the filming of commercials. In this Maybelline video, Ashley replaced Adriana Lima's hands.

The filming process.
Ashley's hands were noticed by an advertising agent at the restaurant where she worked as a waitress.
Since then, her business has gone up significantly. The most interesting thing is that her grandmother in 1930 was a model of hands for typewriters. Ashley jokes that she inherited her hands from her grandmother.
The finished result.
The filming process, which can sometimes take quite a long time.
For example, if it's a pizza commercial, then Ashley will have to pick up the same piece of pizza hundreds of times before a frame of stretching cheese becomes the best frame of stretching cheese in history.
