Ashley Graham took the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards wearing a sheer halter-top jumper that is literally #mindblowing. See-through from the waist down, the Galia Lahav get-up hugged Graham’s enviable curves… enviably.

With innumerable tiny white beads, the suit (part of Lahav’s off-beat bridal collection) required few accessories. Graham opted for a glamorous pair of earrings, and a jeweled clutch.

The first size-16 model to land the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, Ashley Graham accepted an award for her body activism.

She told Glamour that her deepest wish will always be for girls: “I hope they look in the mirror and say, ‘I am beautiful,’” she says. “When you do that, it’s a whole other ball game—you start to understand that your words have power.”

In addition to the award, Graham got to design her own body-realistic Barbie doll with Mattel, which Glamour presented to her at the awards.

As Graham lives every girl’s dream, she sends the powerful message, that they can to.
