It’s no secret that Ashley Graham looks good in just about anything she wears — whether it’s a bikini, a jumpsuit, or a bodycon dress. But according to three out of her four looks down the runway for New York Fashion Week, it seems that designers just might like her best in red.Headed down the runway for both Christian Siriano and Prabal Gurung, Graham was spotted in three all-red ensembles. The color choice wasn’t shocking, as she rocks it well, but it turns out the styling might be a nod to the supermodel’s confidence. According to Leslie Harrington, executive director of the Color Association of the United States, the bold hue is worn by many, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they can all pull it off.“Not everybody can wear red,” Harrington tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “Or maybe they can wear it, but they don’t have the confidence to wear it. Red is really big, bold, and loud. It’s a lot of things that some people don’t want to be. And I think it has a certain level of confidence that goes with it.”For Graham, who’s been open about her journey to self-love and body confidence, this is exactly why the color selection makes sense.“Red fits her messaging, and people probably leverage that,” Harrington continues. “They perceive her that way, and when she’s in that color, it kind of just seems to make sense. That would probably be a natural reason why, intuitively, they style her in red.”Siriano and Gurung, however, were not the only designers who brought a lot of red to the runway this season. The strong statement was illustrated by both Carolina Herrera and Marc Jacobs as well, allowing red to make a comeback after nearly two seasons — even though the color is still thought of as a classic. According to the fall 2018 trend forecast by the Color Association, the return of red might be a good sign for us all.“It means that there’s higher consumer confidence,” Harrington explains, “because we usually don’t buy bright colors or strong colors when we are unsure about what’s going to happen in our future. So it’s interesting that a lot of these shows had this high-low characteristic, with really bright but really faint colors. It’s kind of like what’s happening in our world right now. One day we’re really excited, the next day not so much.”From the looks of Graham’s color palette, every day is seemingly pretty good. But as brighter colors return to our closets, it might mean more hope for a brighter future.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle:• Proof Ashley Graham is always winning • Ashley Graham embraces curves in white-hot bikini photo shoot • Will curvy new Sports Illustrated model Kate Wasley be the next Ashley Graham?Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
