This Is How It's Done: Ashley Graham Pumps Backstage Before First Postbirth Runway Show

Ashley Graham is back on the runway, and it's like she never left. Eight months after giving birth to her baby boy Isaac, the 32-year-old model and new mom said goodbye to maternity leave and starred in Fendi's spring/summer 2021 show during Milan Fashion Week. Her preshow routine admittedly looks a little different nowadays — in a video Ashley shared on Instagram following the show, she's seen casually pumping while getting her hair and makeup done backstage like the hardworking mama she is. We love to see it!

During the show, which took place on Wednesday, Ashley strutted the catwalk in a sheer floral wrap dress worn over a black slip and paired with baby blue heels and a delicate, chain-handle bag. The last time we saw her on the runway (and not the virtual one in her living room!), she was around six months pregnant and walking in the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya show during New York Fashion Week — #TBT! Ahead, take a peek at Ashley's relatable "backstage shenanigans," and keep reading to see her looking like an ethereal goddess in Fendi. We can't wait to see what runway she takes on next!
