No one does it quite like Ashley Graham. The three-time SI Swimsuit model was part of the aptly named “Runway Icons” show, presented by LuisaViaRoma and British Vogue, last week. The star-studded event took place at Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy, on June 14, and Graham delivered with her look.

The model and mom of three strutted the runway in a figure-hugging leopard print dress. The captivating ensemble was accessorized with a matching handbag, strappy black heels, statement earrings and a bold red lip. The outfit featured a semi-sheer top with black straps and hit the 35-year-old model flatteringly mid-calf.

Graham showed off several behind the scenes photos on Instagram the day after the fashion show. “details 🤍,” she wrote simply in her caption.

The 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star included a cute photo with fellow ’19 magazine star Winnie Harlow, as well as a sweet snap with her husband, Justin Ervin.

“Effortless beauty ♥️ ♾️ 🤩,” one of Graham’s 20.9 million IG followers commented.

“Love a bold red lip!” someone else added.

“❤️ So beautiful, it’s the small details that make an outfit,” another person noted.

“Soooooo beautiful 😍😍😍😍,” one more fan stated.
