She’s major! Ashley Graham has led the charge for inclusivity and redefining traditional standards of style both on and off the runway — and we’re celebrating by taking a look at some of her hottest fashion moments.
Whether she’s breaking boundaries as the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, partnering with countless fashion and lingerie brands on capsule collections or judging/hosting America’s Next Top Model and American Beauty Star — Graham has proven that she’s more than just a pretty face.
When it comes to the catwalk, the brunette beauty is a pro, strutting her stuff for fashion houses like Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and more. Her fierceness doesn’t stop there. She’s also a bonafide fashionista, showing off her curves in nearly naked gowns, figure-flaunting minis and boss-lady suits.
One of her most standout red carpet moments of all time came in 2016 at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. For the glitzy soiree, the Nebraska native looked radiant in a red cutout dress by Bao Tranchi. The sexy number featured an opening at the bodice, which revealed Graham’s fiery satin bra.
In the years that followed, Graham continued to bless Us with a number of sultry sightings — even while pregnant. (She welcomed son Isaac in 2020 and twins Malachi and Roman in 2022 with husband Justin Ervin.)
At the CFDA Fashion Awards in 2019, the “Pretty Big Deal” podcast host, who was expecting Isaac at the time, wowed in a skintight dress by honoree Christopher John Rogers. The frock, which was made custom for Graham, featured a shiny, iridescent colorway and ruched fabric that hugged her baby bump.
After welcoming her twins two years later, she returned to the red carpet at the 2022 amFAR Gala in a red tulle gown by Christian Siriano. Graham has had a longstanding relationship with the designer, who has made it his mission to create size inclusive designs. Through the years, Graham has tapped Siriano to create many of her red carpet ensembles and has walked in a number of his shows, including the Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant presentation in 2016, which was the moment Graham and the designer “fell in love,” she revealed to Bravo in a 2020 interview.
Other brands Graham favorites are Peter Do, Hanifa, Fendi, Etro and Schiaparelli.
She turned heads in the Haute Couture label, which was founded by Elsa Schiaparelli in 1927, at the Business of Fashion 500 Gala in France during Paris Fashion Week in October 2022. For the occasion, Graham arrived in a silk dress by the label, which was made with gathered fabric at the waist and a halter neckline. Days later, she proved she’s just as good at dressing down while attending the Orlando Magic vs. New York Knicks game in a checkered button up and wide-leg leather pants.
