Ashley Graham & Her Baby Bump Owned the New York Fashion Week Runway

First, Ashley Graham announced her pregnancy with husband Justin Ervin in the cleverest way. Now, the 31-year-old supermodel and her baby bump full on won New York Fashion Week.

Graham hit the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya fall 2019 collection runway at the Apollo Theater in New York yesterday cradling her baby bump à la Meghan Markle. Spoiler alert: It was a total mood.

Her black polka-dot silk dress, complete with thigh-high slit, a belted waist and white cuffs and lapels, beautifully highlighted her baby to be. Although the dress isn’t yet available, a similar black and white polka-dot version from the collection is for sale for $225. We’d be remiss not to mention her black wide-brim Carmen San Diego hat paired with her silk houndstooth scarf—it was everything. And with the addition of her large silver-tone hoop earrings ($45), black hobo bag and sky-high Zendaya velvet platform T bar shoes ($190), the outfit oozed boardrooms and power moves.

After the show, Graham reflected about walking the runway pregnant on her Instagram Stories. “Y’all, I really just walked in the Tommy Zendaya Show pregnant in some 6-inch with a platform Mary Jane heels [on] concrete that was not even,” she said. “Thank you Jesus I did not fall…I was saying some real prayers out there, guys. But that was such a fun show and I never thought I would walk a show pregnant. That was so fun!”

Graham and her husband announced their pregnancy on Instagram in conjunction with their nine-year wedding anniversary last month.

Although it’s not yet clear when baby Graham-Ervin is set to arrive, one thing’s for sure: He or she already has an impressive modeling résumé.
