Fashion Taboo: What Was Emily Ratajkowski Thinking?

Spread the love

Famous American actress Emily Ratajkowski took a bold stand against what she calls double standards in the industry, by wearing a huge hip cut out dress to a public event.

The daring outfit shows she clearly left her undies somewhere at home.

Emily, 25, attended New York’s Fashion Week kickoff party and this is what she wore. A nude Zimmermann designer dress with special holes that bared her innermost treasures.

She left very little to the imagination.

The 25-year-old was seen in the company of close friends Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls and Chanel Iman.

Emily argues that wearing revealing clothes isn’t all about seeking attention, frowning at people who refer to others as “whores” for the sake of fashion choices they made.

The Gone Girl actress wrote in a recent essay for Glamour magazine“Commenters said I had ‘an excess of beauty and lack of brain’ and told me to ‘shut up and show us your tits’.

“But I was also criticized in a very specific way — for seeking attention. They wrote me off as ‘a desperate attention whore,’ saying I was taking part in the conversation only because everybody else was too.”

The British-born model who is set to appear on Glamour’s October cover, continues: “I realized then that I’ve been called an attention whore so often that I had almost gotten used to it. And as women, we are accused of seeking attention more than men are, whether for speaking out politically, as I did; for dressing a certain way; or for even posting a selfie.

“Our culture has a double standard that runs so deep, many women have actually built up an automatic defense — attempting to be a step ahead of potential critics by making sure we have ‘real’ reasons for anything we say or do.”

She added: “Our society tells women we can’t be, say, sexy and confident and opinionated about politics. This would allow us too much power. Instead our society asks us to declare and defend our motivations, which makes us second-guess them, all while men do what they please without question.”

Emily went further with the feminist arguments on Instagram where she posted: “Our society doesn’t question men’s motivations for taking their shirt off, or shaving, or talking about politics — nor should it. Wanting attention is genderless. It’s human.”

she wrote in an excerpt posted to Instagram earlier that same day. “We shouldn’t have to apologize for wanting attention … We don’t owe anyone an explanation.”
