Never one to hold back, Emily Ratajkowski has updated her 22.1 million Instagram followers with a reminder of why the modeling industry reveres her. The supermodel’s March 19, 2019, update comes three days after The Independent reported that Emily was “defending” a friend amid “body-shaming trolls.”
Flaunting her signature full lips and shooting a piercing gaze into the camera, the model looks caught off-guard in a photo that shows bed sheets in the background and Emily sporting “bed hair.” While a tight cream top conceals a little more flesh than Emily’s usual bikini photos, there’s no disguising that her popular cleavage is prominent.
Vanessa Hudgens “liked” the post, although fan comments honed right in on what appears to be a braless look. One fan asked whether Emily “ever [wears] bras.” His “bros” were asking.
In February of 2018, The Sun covered the “Free The Nipple” movement. With celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Rita Ora seemingly embracing the braless mentality, this popular movement has been well-received by many women.
The newspaper quotes Kendall Jenner as finding it “cool” to “show off what’s under your shirt — whether that’s a cute bralette or just skin.”
Blessed with perky assets and having no fear of showing them, Emily’s March 19 Instagram update appears to out the model as a fan — if not an advocate — of “freeing the nipple.”
As per The Independent, promotional pictures for EmRat’s swimwear line recently saw the model pose next to a fuller-formed friend. The aim, as the model’s brand claims, is to “[embrace] the full spectrum of the female form.” Comments suggesting that Emily prefers her own body to her friend’s were called “humiliation” by one individual. Emily clapped back:
“All these haters are crazy. Just because you’re used to seeing one body type on the Internet doesn’t mean that that’s the only kind that should be considered ‘beautiful’.”
With a back-and-forth conversation over who the “body-shamer” is (Emily or the commenting fans), Emily simply took to Twitter with Ariana Grande’s signature phrase: “Thank U, Next.”
With risqué outfits of her own, Emily is no stranger to social media comments. Despite first impressions though, this model has herself admitted to body insecurities, per her interview with Glamour.
“I have days when I look in the mirror and I am sick of myself!”
Earlier this week, Emily updated her Instagram account with a racy photo to promote her “Inamorata” lingerie line. The range plays on the model’s last name, although the items are much less complicated. Emily isn’t the first model to become a social media entrepreneur. Elle Macpherson forged a similar path with her lingerie line. For younger models like Blac Chyna, the focus seems to trend more towards false lashes.
Clothed she may be, Emily Ratajkowski never leaves much to the imagination.
