Ashley Graham is showing the world that “beauty comes in many forms.” The supermodel – who is expecting her first baby with husband Justin Ervin – walked the runway Sunday night at the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya show at New York Fashion Week while holding her baby bump.
Graham wore a black-and-white contrast collar dress, a black wide-brim hat, and a black-and-white scarf when she strolled down the catwalk at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, and the dress is already available on the Tommy Hilfiger website.
Hilfiger joined forces with Zendaya to create a collection that celebrates inclusivity, individuality, and empowerment. The designers found inspiration for the 1970s midi-dress that Graham wore from traditional menswear.
The 31-year-old model posted a pic on Instagram of herself on the catwalk, and in the caption, she wrote that the show was “so memorable, exhilarating, and truly inspiring.” She also thanked both Hilfiger and Zendaya for including her, and she was proud and grateful to be part of the show.
“Thank you for honoring the importance of inclusion by representing so many different women on your runway and showing that beauty comes in many forms. I could have never imagined the feeling of walking a runway pregnant, it was truly an honor for us to be there! ❤️😘” wrote Graham.
Celebrities who were on hand to watch the event included Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Meghan Trainor, and Olivia Palermo.
Earlier in the week, Graham enjoyed some NYFW parties, including the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party where she wore a form-fitting black lace dress. She also rocked a red latex dress at the Daily Front Row Fashion Awards, which was her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy last month.
Graham has been extremely open and honest about her pregnancy on social media. She recently posted a pic that featured her stretch marks. And, she also shared a video that showed off her underwear in the gym because her maternity workout leggings hurt her growing baby bump when she pulled them over her stomach.
Ashley Graham asked the other “pregnant women of the world” where they buy their maternity workout pants because she no longer fits in the ones she has.
“Please send help!” wrote Graham in the caption.
