New York Fashion Week has definitely improved when it comes to body diversity. (Although, if the catwalks should represent the body diversity in America, it still has a ways to go.) Thankfully, Ashley Graham was EVERYWHERE this New York Fashion Week, and we needed every moment of it.
Ashley Graham started off New York Fashion Week IN CHARGE by hosting the Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards.
Graham's look demonstrated that curvy girls have the right to wear attention-grabbing sheer looks. The see-through red cocktail dress with a high slit revealed her black underwear LIKE A BOSS.
Following the show, Graham inquired why there were no plus-size models in the Fenty x Puma show.
Although she was one of the few plus-size models, she walked in Michael Kors' show for another season.
The past few seasons, Graham has been a mainstay in one of the biggest shows during Fashion Week. That is a MAJOR accomplishment. Hopefully Graham's entrance into straight-size shows will encourage more designers to follow suit.
Graham also showed her own designs — her new lingerie collab debuted in the Addition Elle show.
When Graham hit the runway, the audience erupted in cheers. Graham's status as a household name brought out some of entertainment's biggest names: Danielle Brooks, Gabourey Sidibe, and Miss USA Kara McCullough were a few celebrities in attendance.
