Ashley Graham is being hailed an "inspiration" by many after making a super sexy appearance on the VMAs red carpet this week, where she was proud to show off her stretch marks. 

The model wore a form-fitting black gown with strategically placed cut-outs complimenting her gorgeous bod. In an interview with Access Hollywood, she spoke about the look and what it meant to her to wear it. 

"Here was the thing, tonight, my stretch marks are out," she said. "I'm like okay, here we go stretchmarks, let's go." 

Ashley has previously delighted fans and fellow celebs alike by representing realistic beauty standards in her pregnancy and post-partum Instagram posts, but she said she was determined to keep that mission up offline too. 

"You know what? I'm gonna show it all off. In the photos and in real life," she said. 

This is so cool to see - we struggle to find the words! But luckily, plenty of people online suymmed it up pretty nicely. 

"Those are her hard-earned tiger stripes & she looks AMAZING!!" one Twitter user wrote. 

"I'm 100% here for this - and loving it. Stretchmarks are just part of life for a variety of reasons." 

Of course, Ashley shared some snaps from the night on Instagram, where she was told how much of an impact her body confidence had on others. 

"You look freaking 🔥 after twins. Bella Inspiration to all moms embrace your body," one comment read. 

"Because giving birth is the most beautiful thing, thank you for making our scars shine." 

"You're KILLIN IT Ash!! I really wish I was more secure about myself and my body because I surely would wear it!! You look simply stunning," said another. 

So next time you're doubting whether or not to wear that slinky number you've hidden at the back of the wardrobe for some 'post-diet- bod - just think of Ashley and go on and wear it!
