If you haven’t heard the name Ashley Graham before, let us catch you up a bit. Graham is a 28-year-old plus-size model that is so outrageously beautiful and empowering we wish she was our BFF. But we guess we will have to settle for seeing her on the catwalk.
The size 16 model is making all the headlines today after strutting her stuff on the runway during New York Fashion Week. Graham closed the show for Canadian plus-size brand Addition Elle, wearing nothing but a sexy bra, underwear and heels from her Black Orchid Collection. Let us tell you, she looked stunning… and we aren’t the only ones who thought so. “My curves & lingerie slaying the runway yesterday!! Still pinching myself!!” the Nebraska native wrote on Instagram.
As did the other models, including Denise Bidot, Marquita Pring, Eva Kay and Katy Syme, who graced the runway wearing Graham’s designs.
While it might not seem like a huge deal, having an all plus-size fashion show is incredible. While we have seen more diversity in the fashion industry and during fashion week, both are still quite lacking in presenting women of different colors, shapes and sizes.
So as you can imagine, seeing a slew of gorgeous plus-size models walk the runway in lingerie, well it’s huge for women all over the world!
We think it’s safe to say that New York Fashion will (and shouldn’t) ever been the same again!
Take a look at some photos from the show below!
