Miss Universe 2016 is airing on television right now and the world is waiting to see who takes the crown this year. One can only hope that Steve Harvey announces the right winner this time around. Harvey is hosting the pageant, while model Ashley Graham is the backstage host.
Ashley Graham left no stone unturned to pull a stunning look for the pageant. It comes as a refreshing change to see platforms like Miss Universe 2016 embrace all body types. Graham led the way by being the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Ashley Graham: Great Hosting Skills!
Ashley Graham is a natural when it comes to backstage hosting. We cannot wait to see her more on other hosting gigs, preferably not backstage. She puts the girls at ease and was very articulate and relatable at the same time.
Ashley Graham: Flaunt What You Got
Jeff Kim is responsible for styling Ashley Graham for Miss Universe 2016 and he is doing his job just right. The 28-year old model was seen sporting a dazzling look for the pageant. She chose to experiment with her look by opting for a sheer look gown.
Graham was seen wearing a black bodysuit with a sheer layer of gold embroidered material over top. The gown made sure that all her curves get the attention. Stylist Kim also took to Instagram to reveal the stunning hosts’ look for the evening.
Graham: MakeUp and Hair on Point
Not only did her gown catch the attention but also her impeccable makeup and hair. The model and body activist flaunted her long hair and chose minimal make-up. Her smoky eye look with a nude lipstick did the trick of keeping the attention both on her face and her gown.
Other than the gold embroidered gown, Ashley Graham also wore a lovely Prabal Gurung outfit. She chose a blue seal dress which looked classy and sporty at the same time. Does Prabal Gurung ever disappoint?

Graham is never ashamed of showing off her curves and sometimes even her cellulite. In a recent Instagram post, she was seen by the beach showing some cellulite. The caption of the photo reads, “I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite..and you shouldn’t be either”. The world needs more of Ashley Grahams’.
