She may be well into her first pregnancy, but Ashley Graham, 31, wasn’t about to settle for an oversized maternity costume this Halloween.
While baby bumps have long been transformed into basketballs and or concealed underneath bulbous ensembles — see Heidi Klum’s past glory as the apple that tempted Eve — Graham put hers front and centre as she squeezed into a skintight red latex dress for her sexy Jessica Rabbit costume.
Oozing “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way” sex appeal, the body-positive model vamped in a flame-red wig, accessorising with opera-length purple gloves and the ultimate mama-to-be must-have: comfortable sneakers.
Graham’s other plus-one, husband Justin Ervin, meanwhile, dressed up as the late wrestler Randy “Macho Man” Savage, complete with lace-up boots and large championship belt. The costume also prompted Graham to quip, “Macho Man knocked up Jessica Rabbit for Halloween” in her Instagram caption.
So just how did the beauty pull off that slinky latex look? According to her response to a commenter, she used another new mum staple to lubricate the dress so she could slip it on: baby powder.
She should be a pro by now. Graham also rocked a bump-hugging red latex dress in September for New York Fashion Week. The plus-size model wore the figure-hugging look to attend the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards.
Graham first announced her pregnancy in an Instagram video shared last month, on the ninth anniversary of her wedding. Since then, she has shared numerous images of her pregnancy on her Instagram account, including a nude picture showcasing her stretch marks.
Other stand-out Halloween costumes so far this year include Elizabeth Hurley’s stint as Uma Thurman’s character in ‘Kill Bill’.
