Plus-size model Ashley Graham was stunning in sequins at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards Monday night.


Her gorgeous dress by J. Mendel was black on top and transitioned to pink in the skirt portion. She paired the dress with strappy heels as well. The knee-length dress was beautifully conservative, but still sexy with lots of cleavage.

Basketball star LeBron James took home the award for Sportsperson of the Year.

“I’m not really supposed to be up here. This award is not for me,” James said in his acceptance speech, mentioning his wife, mother and past winners Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Brown and Bill Russell. “It wasn’t about you guys. The four most dominant athletes at that time didn’t care what happened to them. They sacrificed everything that could’ve happened to them, could’ve been stripped of everything they accomplished to that point.“Their call and reasoning was for a night like tonight, that in 2016 in Brooklyn we all can sit up here as African-Americans, white Americans, as Mexicans, people from the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. We can all sit in one room and say, ‘Wow, this is an unbelievable night.’”

THANKFUL, GRATEFUL, HUMBLED, BLESSED, THANK YOU!!! #StriveForGreatness? #RWTW? #TheKidFromAkron? #JamesGang?
