Known for her signature plump lips, she’s often seen flashing the flesh in risky gowns and dresses.
But on Monday, Emily Ratajkowski, who’s recently been making waves because of her new book My Body, looked uncharacteristically shy when she attended the WSJ Magazine 2021 Innovator Awards honoring Kim Kardashian.

The 30-year-old model, who claims never to have had lip injections, kept things demure in a cream bodycon-style midi dress from the Khaite Resort 2022 collection.
She showed just a hint of her big boobs in the form-fitting dress that highlighted her slender model curves. It features an off-the-shoulder neckline, a knotted bodice, side slits, and an all-over ruching effect.

Emily Ratajkowski Embraces Motherhood and Body Positivity
“I wanted a daughter initially, but when I found out I was having a son, I was so relieved.”
She explained: “Because I think that it would bring up—I want more children, so it might be something I deal with later—being sexualized way before puberty and being aware of it. I have a memory: I did a sexy move down the wall of my parents’ kitchen. I was probably in first grade and my parents were like, ‘Where did you learn that?’ I was like, ‘I fricking learned it. That’s what women do.’”

Proving less is more, Emily styled her look with minimal jewelry, including her 18ct gold engagement ring set with 2ct square princess-cut and 3ct pear-shaped diamonds.
She carried her essentials in a slouchy brown leather rectangular clutch from Khaite featuring a sculptural folded base and a gold frame.

As for her beauty look, Emily wore her brunette tresses in soft curls, framing her minimally made-up face. She accentuated her eyes with shimmering bronze eyeshadow and added a swipe of nude lipstick with matching blush.
Giving her look a splash of bold color, Emily slipped her feet into a pair of deep red Manolo Blahnik “Jada” mules.

Emily also opened up about how motherhood shaped her outlook in life and how it changed her relationship with her body.
“I hate the idea that you become a mother and everything changes. It’s something I talk about in the book: You go from child to sex object to mother. But it was one of the most powerful physical experiences.”
“Being in a room and trusting my body—even though there are people around me who say that they know it better than me or that they have a right to it in some way—was hugely impactful,” she added.
