Emily Ratajkowski Poses Nude (Looks Incred), But What She Says Is Even Better
Can we just take a minute to appreciate Emily Ratajkowski's STUNNING profile posing as 'Lady Godiva' in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar:
Now that that's done, her interview with celebrated feminist Naomi Wolf about "selfies and sexuality" as Em puts it, is even more noteworthy than her physique.
Emily goes in-depth about her upbringing and her introduction to the industry at such a young age with such eloquence you forget she's just 25 years old.
"Because of third-wave feminism, I understood that there are all these fucked-up ideals of beauty put on young women; that there was something to be scared about in the entertainment world," Emily explained.
"But yet the people I knew in my everyday life, they [didn't realize] their faux pas, their missteps, and since they knew me it was that much harder because the comments felt personal."
The conversation between Emily and Naomi is real and respectful, detailing ideals that are rarely spoken in mainstream media, until recently of course when stars like Emily, Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose brought them into the forefront with something as simple as selfies.
Emily picks up on a theme in Naomi book The Beauty Myth of an ideal world "where women could dress sexually casually and it wouldn't even be something that anyone would notice."
"For me, that's something I've lived by. I don't wear a bra all the time, and I don't think about it."
However, our favourite point made would have to when the infamous nude selfies are specifically discussed.
Emily argued, "The world should not be exclusive of the ideal body. It has to include all ideals, all bodies. The whole idea is that when Kim takes a nude selfie, she's just seeking attention. That's not the issue. A woman can be seeking attention and also make a statement.They don't need to be mutually exclusive."
