Ashley Graham is living the life. She graced the cover of the iconic Swimsuit Issue from Sports Illustrated (the first plus-size model to achieve such a feat), got to roll around between the sheets with Joe Jonas in the latest DNCE video and designed a truly stylish line of plus-size swimwear that we actually wish came in all sizes. So when we heard there was an exclusive Vogue.com video that provides glimpses into Ashley’s ever-hectic schedule, we were keen to check it out.
The video documents one crazy weekend in Ashley’s life, taking us along for the ride as she journeys to Las Vegas to host the Miss USA Pageant. We’re right with her in the car on the way to catch her flight as she practices her lines while in the makeup chair and applies her own mascara (because that’s what supermodels do). While that might be more than enough to occupy a weekend for us laypeople, she was far from through. Once a queen was crowned, Ashley flew back to New York City to prep for fashion’s big night, the CFDA Fashion Awards. With her trademark humor still intact, we’re treated to a bit of twerking during a fitting plus her and Michael Kors bonding over Spanx. Looking pretty well-rested and not like a girl who just flew cross-country, Ashley dazzled at the ceremony in a black Michael Kors Collection halter gown accented by plenty of glitzy diamond jewelry (lifting her blinged-out hands is her secret workout routine).
