Ashley Graham's Jimmy Choos Turned Against Her on the Red Carpet
She recovered like a pro, because she is one.
Ashley Graham looks beautiful doing everything — even falling on her face. Most of us aren’t as lucky. Ashley tripped on the red carpet Tuesday night while walking towards the 2017 Time 100 gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center. She was dressed perfectly in a Cami NYC high-slit silk dress and a pair of Jimmy Choos. But fashion is the enemy, and Ashley dipped on her heels.
Happily, she didn't go all the way down, which is the worst case scenario in a high-slit dress. Ashley made a quick recovery, laughing it off and posing like the supermodel she is:
Ashley was honored for her work by presenter Tyra Banks, who said, “It is time for everyone to bow down to the fashion industry’s — no, make that beauty’s — new queen.”
Ashley is neither the first nor the last woman to take a plunge while dressed to the nines. At last year’s Time 100 gala, Amy Schumer fell flat on her face at the feet of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
It was later revealed to be a prank, and not one that the Wests found particularly amusing. As long as you're entertaining yourself, stand up, fall down, whatever — just get back up again and keep going down that carpet.
