Ashley Graham is always making headlines with her gorgeous figure — but this time it was for a different reason: as a wedding guest! The body activist and model attended her sister's wedding in a pair of leather pants, proving she's a total badass.
The 28-year-old model attended her sister's wedding over the weekend at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, according to her Instagram, and while there, she wowed everyone with her bold (and laid-back) fashion choice. Graham paired her black leather pants with a black bodysuit and fur jacket — and sealed the deal with a high ponytail. In another Instagram post, she posed with a green jacket by Rag and Bone with her first name embroidered on the back, captioning the photo, "Thanks @ragandbone for my dope jacket! And thank you God for this phenomenal view!"
In another photo, the America's Next Top Model judge was seen taking an iPhone snap of her sister and her husband in their wedding attire, which she captioned, "When your sis designates you as the official photographer! #beardNboobs (Abby's dress is from a local Lincoln, NE boutique Ellynne Bridal, size 18/20- looking AH-MAZING!) #proudsis." The model wore what appears to be black heels, which begs the question: How did she not sink her feet into the rough terrain of the Rocky Mountains while taking pics?
Most recently, Ashley Graham was featured as the Sports Illustrated 2016 swimsuit cover model, and she discussed her hashtag #ThickThighsSave Lives. "My thighs are thick, they are luscious, and I got made fun of them for my whole life. And now I'm being praised for my thick thighs and they have saved my life many times, and I want women to know that their thick thighs are saving their own lives," she explained to People regarding the social media movement.
While it's unclear if Graham was given the go-ahead by the bride to wear her risky wedding guest ensemble, it definitely breaks the mold of traditional wedding guest attire — and we're loving it. Leave it to this ANTM star to make some wedding guest waves, showing her curvaceous figure while she's at it. Kudos, girl — here's to looking gorgeous and chic, and totally rocking a unique look at a wedding. See below for more photos!
