Finding the right outfit to wear to a wedding is tricky, especially when you're a highly sought-after model. Of course, you don't want to overshadow the bride, who is most likely draped in white lace and satin, on her very special day.
So how do you play it low key while still looking hella stylish? Just ask Ashley Graham.
The "size sexy" supermodel broke all the rules as the maid-of-honour at her sister Abigail's laid-back outdoor wedding in Colorado, wearing skin-tight Rag and Bone leather trousers, a black bodysuit and a black fur jacket from Adrienne Landau.
Ditching the usual flowing skirts worn by most bridesmaids, the "America's Next Top Model" judge proved you can totally pull off all-black attire at a wedding and trek through the Rocky Mountains in stilettos. She shared photos from the special day on her Instagram, where it looks like she even played impromptu photog for the newlyweds.
"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 28-year-old captioned the photo.
We hope you used VSCOcam to edit those photos, Ash!
Alas, some of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl's followers didn't exactly love the offbeat look, with some saying they "couldn't believe" the model wore leather pants to a wedding. But leave it up to bride and sister Abigail to intervene on her sister's behalf, shutting down the haters.
"hey people who want to dictate what my thoughts are – I asked my sister to take my photos (when the camera dies you improv with an iPhone), I asked my sister to wear that sexy outfit, and I asked my sister to post that photo because her ass looks so good. SO GOOD! IM SO GRATEFUL to have a selfless, loving, supportive sister who took time out of her busy schedule to fly to NE to help me find the perfect dress & then later take MORE time off to fly out for my elopement. Ash, you are the best sis in the world! I’m so thankful to have you as my bestie! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!" Abigail commented on Ashley's photo.
We agree with Abigail: keep doing you, Ashley!
