Plus-size supermodel Ashley Graham has been on the cover of Vogue, but she has never been to the Met Gala.

Until this year, that is. 

Graham attended the Met Gala for the first time and brought some serious curves to the red carpet in a custom H&M corset dress.

She honored this year’s theme by staying true to the aesthetic of Japanese fashion designer, Rei Kawakubo (but Graham told PeopleStyle that the accentuated waist was 100% "Ashley.")

The model described her dress as "timeless, feminine, and romantic."

Between her "non-designer" gown and her unapologetically plus-size silhouette, Graham broke ALL the damn rules.

"I’m still pinching myself that I’m attending with H&M,” Graham gushed to PeopleStyle

“For me, this symbolizes change and another important moment in the body-positivity movement.”

Graham understands the significance of her Met Gala appearance, which is why she didn't shy away from showing off her beautiful body.

"Fashion has given a lot of 'rules' to curvy women, so we’re often told to play it safe," Graham explained. "I love that we played with volume and shapes."

"[My dress] really shows off my figure and curves."

Leave it to Graham to use her Met Gala dress as a way to make a powerful statement for body positivity.
