25 Times Ashley Graham Perfected the Art of Fearless Fashion

ESC: Met Gala 2017, Ashley Graham


Ashley Graham is not one for subtlety… and for good reason!

The body positivity activist—who made history as the first size 16 supermodel to land the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2016—knows a thing or two about expressing oneself through fashion. From curve-hugging silhouettes to bold prints and practically every strappy heel under the sun, Ashley is the perfect inspiration for anyone motivated to take their wardrobe to the next level.

Ashley made a major splash in the fashion world when she attended her very first Met Gala in 2017 wearing a bespoke gown by H&M. With its larger-than-life ruffle and cascading skirt it’s no surprise she told E! News her design team was tasked with making the ensemble “very Ashley,” adding, “So we have the body in between it all.”

Since then, Graham became a staple at every major industry event—including Fashion Week, of course.

Whether she’s strutting her stuff down the runway, serving looks on the red carpet or giving every street-chic celeb a run for their money, Ashley has undoubtedly perfected the art of fearless fashion. Keep scrolling for some of our favorite A.G. looks of all time.
