When it came time to designing her first-ever dress collection, Ashley Graham went back to her mantra: "Beauty is beyond size."

The model and self-proclaimed body activist who's been making headlines these past 12 months (most recently being the first plus model to land the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue (yeah, girl!), is debuting a capsule collection called Beyond by Ashley Graham with DressBar, that celebrates women of all shapes, with sizes ranging from a four to size 24.

"As my first apparel collaboration, I wanted to create something sexy and sophisticated and we definitely achieved that with these dresses, "said Graham of the line which retails from $46 to $66. "I also realized it was vital for me to partner with a company that shares my belief that all women, no matter their shape or size, should have access to well-made clothing that makes them feel confident and beautiful."

8 Styles to Never Wear on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a celebration of love, of relationships, and—sometimes—just a night to kick back and party with your closest girlfriends. Being the date night of the year, it's important to feel your sexiest, but that doesn't mean stepping out in little more than your lingerie. In a day and age where the likes of the naked dress have gained (shockingly) rapid popularity among celebrities, it's not exactly a trend you have to try to emulate.

While the most important rule is to slip into something that makes you comfortable (and, of course, to dress for you and not for your significant other), there are a few more specific looks to avoid. Read through our list of fashion faux pas to avoid of this romantic holiday, and every day thereafter.


Sweatpants. Ok, hear us out on this one. We're in full support of a Netflix and chill evening, especially on Valentine's Day. A bottle of wine, Game of Thrones marathon. You got it. Just turn it up a little on February 14 and please—at least opt for the silk pajama pants over college sorority sweatpants.

Spanx. Going home with that special someone after your candle lit dinner? Try to shy away from underwear that needs a team of people to strip off of your body.

Strappy, complicated lingerie. Change into that sexy boudoir look after dinner. There is no such thing as a lace-up corset or bow-clad undergarment that doesn't bunch under your date night look.

Too-high heels. We promise: Heels that you can't walk in? They don't look good on anyone.

A totally sheer top. While a cutout or eyelet top may reveal a bit of your sexy lace bra, there's no need to go too bare. Make sure your underwear isn't totally visible to everyone who looks your way.

Too-tight dresses. As hot as you think you look standing up, have you ever tried to sit down in one of these? Cross your legs? Make this night about you—avoid dresses that force you to think more about how uncomfortable you are than the person sitting across the table from you at dinner.

Head-to-toe red. We know, red is the color of the holiday. Don a flirty cherry colored mini, a ruby toned lace top, even fire engine hued flats. Just please don't wear them all together. That, dear friends, is what we like to call over-the-top.

Too much perfume. Make an entrance all on your own. There's no need for your guy (or gaggle of girls!) to smell you miles before you walk through the door. We don't care how good that perfume smells after a few puffs.

Rihanna’s Slinky Red Velvet Slip Dress Is Perfect for Your New Year’s Eve Party

Well hello, Rihanna.

Rihanna's Slinky Red Velvet Slip Dress Is Perfect for Your New Year's Eve Party

The singer stepped out in Santa Monica, Calif., last night for dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, Italian hot spot Giorgio Baldi. Let's get this out of the way: RiRi looked good. And with New Year's Eve less than a week away, we couldn't help but notice that her dress is pretty party-perfect. The ultra-slinky red velvet slip clung in all the right places, and her kitschy accessories—a black leather bow, fur-trimmed Vetements coat, and silver sandals—also captured our imagination.

This is essentially how we want to look to ring in 2016: Sexy and confident with a touch of rocker-cool. And now, thanks to Rihanna, we can't think of any better way to achieve this effect than wearing a vampy red dress in a luxe, unexpected texture. Online shopping, here we come.

ICYMI: Kim Kardashian West and Kate Middleton Have Worn the Same Dress

Crazy, but true: There is a shared link between the closets of the Duchess of Cambridge and Kim Kardashian West. Kate Middleton attended a London school's Christmas party yesterday looking as regal as ever in a long-sleeve red Alexander McQueen dress she's worn before. The bright holly-red was festive enough for the occasion, but still princess-appropriate with a knee-length hemline and wrist-touching sleeves (it's no coatdress, but close).

Now what if we told you that Kim's actually worn the same polished, prim dress? Your brain's doing crazy somersaults of confusion, we know. The reality star actually sported the style back in 2011, albeit a shortened, sleeveless version. Aside from the structural differences, Kim put her own styling spins on it too. Where the Duchess wore basic, mid-height black pumps, Kim wore snakeskin Louboutins. The royal wore no major jewelry, while KKW had a statement necklace flashing. The one thing they both did? Grabbed a small clutch in lieu of a larger day bag.

Ever since her sublimely stunning wedding dress, Kate Middleton's name has been associated with Alexander McQueen. The Duchess of Cambridge wears the house frequently (including for both of her little ones' christenings), but one silhouette stands out from the pack: the always classy, perfectly tailored coatdress. With a neat tailored look that adds instant formality, it's today's version of a skirt suit for modern royals—and a new princess just added it to her closet!

Norway's Princess Mette-Marit seemed to take a lot of inspiration from Kate, wearing a crisp white Alexander McQueen dress that could have been plucked straight from the closets at apartment 1A. It fits her like a dream, with a skinny belt acting as an elegant accessory that defines her figure. The all-black accessories are also a major British royal styling trick.

The Norwegian royal chose the look for this year's Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, keeping things regal for the occasion with a thick headband that mimics a tiara. Notice the peaked shoulders of her jacket, creating a strong shape in the same way shoulder pads did in the '80s? It's a total McQueen signature.

Mette-Marit's white style reminded us of Kate for not only her christening dresses (both cream to match the robe George and Charlotte wore), but also for the bold peplum style she picked for the Order of the Garter ceremony in 2012. Beside her and also rocking the coatdress is Sophie, Countess of Wessex, a Queen Elizabeth confidante who's been quite open about how fashion fits into the royal lifestyle.

For an official engagement last fall it was another McQueen number for Kate, and the basic cut of this one is a lot like the style we just saw in Norway. It's a perfect example of why the style is such a no-brainer for professional and formal occasions: Kate could be wearing a basic dress or outfit underneath it, but the flared skirt and nipped waist are so similar to a classic dress that it doesn't feel off at all when the piece is left buttoned throughout an entire ceremony.

Coatdresses vary in weight and coverage too, with Kate's lighter favorites appearing as a basic dress at first glance. Conversely, the Duchess has also worn thicker pieces as actual coats. Remember this cornflower blue beauty? You can clearly see she's got an actual dress on underneath.

The coatdress tops our list of princess closet essentials. Come see the other six items every chic royal counts on.

Exclusive: See Emily Ratajkowski’s First Dress as a Designer

Emily Ratajkowski has officially added "designer" to her burgeoning resume (which also includes model, actress, and philanthropist, FYI) after teaming up with Christy Dawn to create the dress of your dreams.

The two met when Dawn, a former model, and Ratajkowski worked on the same job years ago; and reconnected when she outfitted the actress for a wedding this summer. In the following three months, the duo conceptualized and created The Emily Dress—a skater-shaped mini with a nipped waist, bell sleeves, square neckline, and removable neck scarf.

"I thought about the dresses that I've loved and been able to wear through the seasons, and what kind of a dress I want now," Ratajkowski told Glamour in an exclusive interview. "The necktie is my favorite part because you can make the look dressed up with it, or casual without it. I imagine myself wearing the dress without it on a summer day with tennis shoes, and dressing it up for evening with the necktie and heels. But first, I’ll be wearing it for holiday parties with boots."

In addition to making the number seasonless, she and Dawn wanted it to be wearable for everyone. "I wanted it to fit different kinds of bodies," says Ratajkowski. "Most importantly, the waist cinches for flattery. I also think that women have beautiful clavicles and the square neckline shows that off. The skirt is cut so that it's comfortable, not too tight, and has the perfect amount of swing to it."

To date, every Christy Dawn piece has been comprised of dead stock fabric and sustainably made by local artisans in Los Angeles. Eco-consciousness is one of the company's pillars, born from Dawn's small-town upbringing and commitment to the environment. "There's some truth to the stereotype of green juice drinking surfers—maybe it's all the sunshine—but California has a history of being eco-conscious in fashion," says Ratajkowski. "There are a number of brands in LA doing a great job using dead stock fabrics, but Christy's brand stands out because it has a personal touch that's hard to find in the day and age of fast fashion."

And the pair is socially focused, too: 25 percent of the dress' proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood, as chosen by Ratajkowski, who has previously shown her support of the organization through her social channels. "It's a hands-on organization that has impacted my life," she says. "I hold women's health care in this country close to my heart—and it's something that's under attack right now, with the vote in the senate and the recent shooting. I'm constantly surprised that people are afraid to back this organization, which shows that there's a lot of work to be done. I would like it to be a basic thing that isn't controversial or super brave to get behind."

So, here's what you need to know about getting your hands on the gorgeous, eco-friendly, socially conscious dress. It's set to go on sale Monday, December 7th on Christy Dawn's website and in her Venice, California store. There will be 75 pieces available in 5 colors (mustard, burgundy, rose, periwinkle, and black floral) which will retail for $250 each.

The Ultra-Flattering $24 Dress Meteorologists Are Wearing All Around the Country

You think you have a tricky time picking out clothes for work? Consider the plight of the meteorologist, destined to work under harsh studio lights and in front of a finicky green screen. Luckily, it's a field that also seems to band together, as proved by a shared fashion find that's quickly gone viral. A delightfully fascinating Reddit stream shows hundreds of comments to a post someone shared of a color-blocked, elbow-length sleeve dress with the caption, "This is what happens when you post a link to a $23 dress on Amazon to a female meteorologist Facebook group." Behold the power of fashion!

Link to the dress: <a rel="noreferrer nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0142M5M72?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=B0142M5M72&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=meteojennimye-20">http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0142M5M72?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creativeASIN=B0142M5M72&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=meteojennimye-20</a>

Said Facebook group is a members-only circle of women who work in the field, and the dress garnered so much adoration and attention because it ticks a lot of boxes. On-air work traditionally requires leaving the busy prints at home, and most guidelines still make mention of skipping anything sleeveless or too low-cut. This dress ($23 on Amazon) has the required coverage and camera-pleasing jewel tones, but also utilizes color blocking at the waist and hips to flatter any figure. Combine that with the wallet-friendly price tag, and it deserves a spot in everyone's workplace wardrobe, news studio or not.
