As if we already didn’t love Ashley Graham enough, she decided to show up and show out last night at the VMA’s in a sheer, crystal-studded gown complete with a sheer black balconette bra and high-waisted briefs underneath. Have you ever seen anyone look so perfect? Because I honestly haven’t. It’s like a red carpet, gothic mermaid look all wrapped into one! And more than anything, I’m so glad that she has continued to confidently wear the things that she wants to wear and not subscribe to any of society’s limits that say only certain women can wear sheer looks on the red carpet.
Also I should mention that I love that a true runway designer, and not just a designer that specializes in creating pieces custom pieces for curvy women made this dress for her. In fashion, that is a sign of acceptance, and that things maybe are changing in the right direction so that curvy women can wear designers like Naeem Khan too. She finished off the look with Vita Fede jewelry and Stuart Weitzman sandals so the moral of the story is that she’s got the body and she should show it off as much as she like!
