- Kat Graham may be busy doing press for her new film, but she still made sure to also put her sculpted abs on full display for her IG followers this week.
- The actress and singer, 32, follows a vegan diet, and has shared some of her favorite vegan dishes on social media.
- While she doesn’t share a lot about her workout routines, Kat is big into dancing.
Kat Graham has been a fashion icon for a while now, but this week she’s been stepping it up a notch, and all I have to say is: “BRB, adding *everything she’s wearing* to my cart.”
The Vampire Diaries actress donned a lilac retro bra top while doing a press junket for her latest film, Love in the Villa, on Netflix, and her washboard abs were certainly catching everyone’s eyes. Kat posted a pic of those abs to her Instagram Story, and she made sure to shout out her hair and makeup artist in the process. The star was sporting a natural glam look with a nude lip and just a dusting of gold on her eyelids.
Kat, 32, has certainly been busy in recent months, with premieres aplenty and the release of her latest album, Long Hot Summer. If you haven’t listened to Kat’s certified bop, “Oprah Rich”…get yourself together and pull it up on Spotify, stat.
Kat has been serving looks since her Vampire Diaries days, but it is impossible to ignore her glowing skin and super-toned core in these latest snaps. While Kat has always been focused on being healthy, she’s more focused on being her truest self and looking at beauty from a natural place, which is quite refreshing.
“When I approach beauty, I’m definitely coming at it from a different place. I’m like, do my freckles show? Am I wearing my hair the way I feel most myself?” Kat shared in an interview with People in July 2021. “I think being in our homes so much and really learning about our skin has helped us make our beauty now even better. And we can have more fun because we’re all ready to get out!” I truly couldn’t agree more, Kat.
For a more practical tip, though, Kat, who works with L’Oréal, said she never leaves home without her Infallible foundation (only $14 at Amazon—an affordable queen!)
“It’s also important for women to know that … as long as you feel good when you walk out the door, you’re good. Let it go,” she told People.
Maybe Kat doesn’t spill a ton of her day-to-day fitness routine because she’s more focused on her mental strength gains than on her body. She told POPSUGAR that playing Bonnie on Vampire Diaries helped her discover things about herself.
“It was also a show where I was the only African-American regular, and it brought to my attention certain things that I wanted to make sure I was thoughtful of when I move forward in my career,” she shared.

Kat added: “I learned so much moving forward. I mean, not every character has to be a badass and has to start off strong in any way. I think we as women, we have things that happen to us that make us strong. We have things that happen to us that change the way we see ourselves, and that’s OK, too.” Amen!!!
And this truly STUNNING looking vegan sweet potato gnocchi in a cinnamon sage butter sauce she whipped up for Thanksgiving. Uh, yum.
Kat—whether you need a dance partner or have an empty spot at the Turkey Day table—give your girl a call!
