Ashley Graham Gets Cheeky in Butt-Exposing Chaps in Milan Days Before Debuting Her Runway Collection

Posted on

 

Ashley Graham‘s certainly feeling herself post-NYFW as she jetted off to Milan Fashion Week for another round of excitement – so much so that she’s sharing a 360° view of her butt-baring ensemble.

The model, who was proud to help show body diversity at New York Fashion Week at the Michael Kors show, gave us a sneak peek at her Sophia Loren-inspired runway look from the makeup chair to the final fittings.

Graham took a break from getting her glam on to strut her stuff in a black corset, cheeky bum-revealing chaps and a black thong with her hair still in curlers.

Even though the body positive model has shown off her assets plenty of times before, like any other woman, she admits she still sometimes faces insecurities baring it all. “I mean, of course like any girl when you get to the beach or the pool and you go, ‘Oh, I have to take my cover-up off, crap.’ And you feel like everybody’s watching, and then you just go, ‘Oh fine, I’ll just take it off,’ ” Graham previously told PEOPLE. “And then all of a sudden you get comfortable and go, ‘Okay. Another piña colada.’”

It’s a particularly momentous Milan Fashion Week for the model. This morning, Marina Rinaldi announced that the brand teamed up with Graham (who until now has just been the face of the line) to design a capsule collection, which will be unveiled at the brand’s fashion show in Milan.

The “playful and positive” collection, which begins rolling out in January, focuses on luxury denim developed using the most advanced materials to ensure comfort, as well as stretch leather jackets, pants, jumpsuits and tops.

“This allows for extra comfort,” Lynne Webber, managing director of Marina Rinaldi told WWD. “It’s very difficult for plus-size customers to find the right fit with denim and we wanted to use comfortable fabrics that have a super recovery quality and dress all silhouettes.”

Designing clothing isn’t a totally new endeavor for Graham. The model designed her first collection for Dressbarn last year, debuted a lingerie line with Addition Elle at NYFW in September 2015 and also creates swimwear pieces for Swimsuits For All.
