Ashley Graham wasn't about to let Cheryl Tiegs' comments keep her from rocking the Oscar red carpet.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl stunned in a revealing red dress at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday night, just a few days after Tiegs apologized for calling the size 14-16 model "unhealthy."

"I don't like that we're talking about full-figured women because it's glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That's what Dr. Oz said, and I'm sticking to it," the 68-year-old former cover girl told E! News last week. "Her face is beautiful. But I don't think it's healthy in the long run."

After receiving backlash for her comments, Tiegs took to Twitter on Friday to offer "my sincere apologies to everyone I have hurt."

"I truly just want everyone to be healthy & happy," she added.

Graham hasn't responded to the comments, but certainly seemed happy as she posed for pics in her stunning custom Bao Tranchi dress. On Monday morning, the 28-year-old model recapped her glam night on Twitter.

"Bao Tranchi custom dress last night had me feeling like I was wearing a piece of art!" she wrote, adding the hashtag "#beautybeyondsize."

Graham opened up to ET last August about the stigmas that come with being referred to as a "plus-sized" model.

"The things that I don't necessarily like about it is all the negative stigmatisms that go with the word plus size -- you're fat, you're lazy, you have no drive, no determination, you're constantly eating," she explained. "Honey, I work out. I work out three days a week. I lift. I do barre. I do it all. It's the stereotypes. That's what I really don't like. I am me. Take it or leave it."
