Ashley Graham is slaying London Fashion Week, from rocking bleached brows to a Spice Girls-inspired outfit complete with a U.K. flag-printed Chanel bag. For her latest endeavor, the model wore a gorgeous tan leather dress to Moncler’s “The Art of Genius” celebration on Feb. 20.

Graham paired her strapless CULTNAKED Choco Killa Dress ($390) with a sleeveless shiny black puffer vest casually draped over top and black peep-toe wedges. The whole look was styled by Emily Evans, and the 35-year-old accessorized with several rings and gold hoop earrings.

Hairstylist Shukeel Murtaza pulled Graham’s hair back away from her face in a braided ponytail, while makeup artist Chynara Kojoeva opted for winged eyeliner and a nude lip.

The three-time SI Swimsuit model showed off her look in a series of Instagram snaps captured by photographer Sofi Adams the following day. Best of all, Graham got candid in her caption and proved that even models experience struggles just like the rest of us.

“Keep swiping to see what it felt like to get this dress on ✌🏼#LFW,” the mom of three wrote.

While the first nine pics were glamorous snapshots of Graham’s full ensemble, the last slide featured a GIF of Ross Geller from Friends trying to wiggle into a pair of leather pants.

“Literally a model 😍😍😍😍😍,” gushed fellow SI Swimsuit model Kamie Crawford.

“Ross could never though 🔥🔥,” quipped a fan.

“The hip roll in this leather is…so beautiful. 🥵,” model Lauren Chan wrote.

“Lmaooooo not the last sliiiide!!😂😂,” laughed fashion blogger Nadia Aboulhosn.
