Ashley Graham suffers wardrobe malfunction, flashes nude underwear in a thigh-high slit dress in Melbourne
Ashley's wardrobe malfunction comes after she urged the modeling industry to remove the 'plus size' label on clothing
Catwalk queen Ashley Graham suffered a wardrobe malfunction on the runway at a Melbourne fashion show on Thursday.
While the 31-year-old strutted her stuff down the runway, her nude colored underwear was accidentally seen. However, she managed the fashion gaffe with aplomb and was seen posing in a flowing aqua blue dress which showed off a pretty high thigh split.
She sported a bejeweled belt and also a keyhole cut-out placed at the bust which accentuated her cleavage. She finished off the look with a pair of ankle strap heels and earrings.
Ashley's wardrobe malfunction comes recently after she urged the modeling industry to remove the 'plus size' label on clothing.
As reported by Daily Mail, while appearing on 'The Project', Ashley shared, "To have an industry say, 'Oh, this is the plus size model'... why do we have to describe a woman because of a number inside of her pants? Why can't we just say her name or her occupation and that be it? Men don't do that. They don't say 'my plus-size friend whoever'."
She also spoke about how she was "looking forward to the day" when she does not have to discuss her size in interviews.
"Because I am the first of so many things, I'm going to have to talk about this for the rest of my career. And that's okay because I didn't have a role model growing up that looked like me," she revealed.
As reported by Style Caster, Ashley also shared that despite her success and status in the industry, she still gets fat-shamed.
"The end of last year, I had a stylist and I couldn’t fit into these pants. [The stylist] smacked the side of my thighs and she said, ‘Ashley if you just got rid of that right there, you would be able to fit into these pants.' UM—excuse me? Isn’t the point of a stylist to find clothes to fit you rather than the other way around?"
"What I really want to see is that we don’t have to have this conversation [about] diversity, that it’s already there. Because that’s how the world is. We are all created so differently. We need to be able to embrace that and have this natural conversation around it instead of saying, ‘Oh, there’s a big girl in a magazine,’ or ‘Oh, we’ve got our black people,’ or ‘Oh, we have to make sure we include all gender.’ It’s like, just include everybody. At the end of the day, that’s just it," she continued.
