19 Ashley Graham Dresses That Embody Her Sultry Sense of Style
Ashley Graham took the fashion industry by storm when she became the first curve model ever featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2015, and she's been dominating ever since. She's become an advocate for body neutrality, an honest speaker about the journey of motherhood, a swimsuit collaborator with Swimsuits For All, and a star to watch when she steps onto the red carpet. That is, when she's not the star of the show on the runway.
The 35-year-old model loves to wear unexpected dresses, including everything from a flashy Fannie Schiavoni number with a super-dramatic slit to a classic naked dress. We love a woman who isn't afraid to experiment with her fashion, and that's something Graham has down to a science.
The latest example came at spring/summer 2024 Fashion Week in London, where she attended the Erdem runway show alongside husband Justin Ervin in coordinated florals (her own dress being an elegant off-the-shoulder maxi with romantic ties at the sleeves). Next, she turned up the edge in a sheer black Bach Mai gown layered atop a cleavage-baring Pritch corset that was belted at the waist and teamed with a pair of thong sandals. The look was put together by her stylist, Emily Evans, who is always on hand to help make Graham's outfits memorable.
Ahead, take your time to appreciate some of the best dresses the supermodel has worn, and take some notes, because she knows how to rock each of them flawlessly.
