Ashley Graham is a supermodel, an amazing mom of three and an incredible champagne carpet host. The SI Swimsuit model conducted interviews for ABC’s Oscars pre-show on March 12 and she looked absolutely stunning while doing so.

Graham wore a custom black Alberta Ferretti gown featuring a bedazzled see-through fishnet skirt, midriff-bearing wrap top and gorgeous flowy mesh sleeves.

Stylist Emily Evans paired the gown with Jimmy Choo heels and accessorized with several Pandora diamond earrings. Her glam kept up with the drama of the dress, and makeup artist Ivan Nunez opted for a full face of Revlon products.

“We wanted to go for a classic Hollywood glamour look with a twist,” Nunez said in a press release. “I was heavily inspired by the sharp graphic lines of the gown. So I gave her a beautiful, sharp, smoked out liner moment.”

He started with the brand’s Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation ($17.99) and ColorStay Skin Awaken 5-in-1 Concealer ($12.89). He added a bit of color and dimension to Graham’s face with SkinLights Prismatic Powder Bronzer ($13.99) and Powder Blush in Oh Baby! Pink ($12.89).

Nunez opted for a shimmery smokey eye and bold winged eyeliner. He used ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black ($9.99) and So Fierce Mascara ($11.29).

For lips, Nunez lined the model’s pout with ColorStay Longwear Lip Liner in Sienna ($9.69) and added shine with Super Lustrous The Gloss in Snow Pink ($9.99).

The 35-year-old’s hair was slicked back into a perfect bun with braided strands by hairstylist Mashal Afzalzada. Nail artist Ashlie Johnson went with a classic acrylic baby pink ombre look.

“Queen of the carpet ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥@ashleygraham,” she captioned an adorable selfie of Graham on the champagne carpet. “The talent and energy can’t be topped!! What a hard job done with such excellence Mama!!”
