Ashley Graham can do it all. The model and mom of three certainly knows how to rock a swimsuit, as she did so effortlessly on the cover of the 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue. With her March 29 Instagram post, Graham also proved she can draw a striking comparison to an oil painting.

In a duo of black-and-white images captured by photographer Karolis Kaminskas, Graham wore a white button-up under a corset-style top with fringe, both of which were cinched with black belt. The model opted for no pants, thigh-high boots and a small black cap.

Graham, 35, struck a pose and showed off the full ensemble, styled by Steven La Fuente, in the first snap. The second image offered up the model’s flawless profile.

“Paint me like one of your French girls 👩‍🎨,” she wrote in her caption.

Makeup artist Grace Ahn opted for bold brows, while hairstylist Gonn Kinoshita pulled the model’s hair up and allowed baby bangs to peek out from underneath the hat. Her accessories were minimal with just a few earrings.

Friends and followers were absolutely floored with Graham’s look.

“WOWWWWWW,” SI Swimsuit model Georgina Burke gushed.

“Okkkk yessssss FULL SHOOK,” Nadia Aboulhosn wrote.

“Excuse me?! How dare you look so good ma’am! ♥️,” one person applauded.

“What a jawline,” someone else added. “Gorgeous.”
