Ashley Graham joined a host of stars and entrepreneurs in New York on Thursday night at Vanity Fair’s first ever Founders Fair conference. The dark-haired beauty showcased her hourglass curves in a figure-hugging violet number by American fashion house Cushnie et Ochs with a daring thigh-high slit and belt detailing to the waist. Embracing one of this season’s major trends, Ashley draped her black jacket over her shoulders, and opted for a pair of strappy heels to complete her look.
Her long hair was worn in a fashion-forward high ponytail and she enhanced her fabulous model features with a bronzed, make-up look. A bold flick of liquid eyeliner drew attention to her big brown eyes, her cheeks were sculpted using a tawny-hued bronzing powder and the look was completed with a swipe of matte lipstick in a muted pink shade. Adding to the eye-catching look, the 29-year-old accessorised with an oversized pair of hoop earrings.

Throughout the day-long event in Brooklyn, inspiring leaders, including Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon and fashion designer Tory Burch, took to the stage in a series of interviews and talks of the trials and tribulations of starting up and running a successful business.
Meanwhile, Ashley stepped out in another spring-ready look earlier in the month when she attended the Winter Bumbleland party at Coachella. Looking every inch the Grecian goddess, the model wore a statement black minidress with metallic gold draping and chose to accessorise with an on-trend choker necklace. This time, the America’s Next Top Model judge wore her hair down and a soft, shimmering eye look pulled her look together perfectly.

A true champion for body positivity and equality in the fashion industry, Ashley has had an incredible few years and achieved huge success in her career. With a starring role in America's Next Top Model under her belt, the American beauty has fronted a number of high-profile fashion campaigns and empowered women the world over. The model was also "thrilled" to have been immortalised in plastic with her very own Barbie doll which she proudly showcased at the Glamour Women of the Year summit in November last year.
