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."

The line is filled with figure-flattering looks, from wasp-waster day dresses, to printed A-line dresses, and yes, the almighty—and very sexy— LBD in neoprene. No word yet if Graham is going to create pieces quite as daring as her lingerie-inspired Oscar look on Sunday, but hey, never say never.
