Only fearless fashion moments stand out at Couture Week, and Ashley Graham provided just that. In Paris last week to celebrate the launch of Fausto Puglisi’s latest collection for Marina Rinaldi and enjoy a few of the season’s events, Graham headed out to the Vogue Paris Foundation Dinner dinner at Musee Galliera wearing a statement look from Alexander McQueen. Part power suit, part boudoir dressing, the lacy number featured a classic double-breasted jacket in wool silk and a lace skirt with peekaboo panels. With a hint of leg showing and a pair of Jason Wu for Manolo Blahnik heels, Graham embraced the transparency of Sarah Burton’s design by wearing the revealing combination with confidence.

When your clothes speak volumes, it’s best to keep the rest simple and Graham did just that with drop earrings and a design from her Addition Elle collaboration worn as a top. Finishing things off with wine-stained lips and a sleek center part, she struck the right balance between boss and glamazon, making it the perfect choice for the model turned mogul.
