Ashley Graham is undoubtedly one of fashion’s most influential women right now. Her achievements go way beyond her success as a supermodel. Graham is an incredible advocate for body diversity by speaking about self-love and constantly shutting down body shaming. Oh, and let’s not forget her sleek fashion sense. Here, we analyze Graham’s event style to showcase the best plus-size party outfits.

After selecting our four favorite Ashley Graham looks, we have pinpointed two key attributes to look for. First, a high-waist fit is always flattering. The silhouette elongates your legs and shows off your waist. Secondly, Graham is a big fan of midi dresses. She styles her midi-length dress with minimalist stilettos and a statement coat. Below, check out four different plus-size party outfits brought to you by Ashley Graham.
