Ashley Graham's Racy Dress Proves Thighs Are Sexy At Any Size

Ashley Graham, model, body positivity activist and all-around goddess, just proved once again that no woman (or man!) should be ashamed of cellulite.

The 28-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl stepped out in New York City on Friday wearing quite possibly one of her raciest looks yet, which showed off one of her best assets: her thighs.

Take a look:

The black Jonathan Simkhai knit dress seemed pretty simple at the top, but it was the loosely done tie-up side on the left that really amped up the WOW factor. The majority of Ashley's leg was put on full display, cellulite and all.

Graham paired her ensemble with simple black heeled sandals and a black Chanel 'Boy' bag. Her hair was styled into a voluminous ponytail and a metallic teal cat eye took her look to the next level.

Ashley, who was just announced as one of the new judges of "America's Next Top Model", recently received criticism from her fans on Instagram after posting a photo where she appears to have lost weight.

"I knew it you did lose a lot of weight! I am no longer a fan of yours you betrayed a lot of people! So I'll find another plus size beautiful woman bcuz(sic) yo're(sic) full of s--t!!! #damnshame #justliketherest," one user commented on Graham's Instagram photo.

However, not one to take sh*t from haters, the Cosmopolitan cover girl was quick to clap back, commenting, "People come on my page and body shame me because I'm too big, because I'm too small, because I'm not good enough for their standards...But at the end of the day I'm good enough for me. Angles will make anyone look bigger or smaller and I just happen to know mine."

She also took to Snapchat to respond to the haters, sharing a photo of herself walking the runway with text overlay that read, "I will not let others dictate what they think my body should look like for their own comfort, and neither should you."

And this thigh-baring ensemble is just further proof Ashley Graham loves her body and DGAF about what anyone else thinks.
