Emily Ratajkowski posed nude on a horse for the most recent issue of Harper's Bazaar. The model and actress is best known for her role as the other woman in the movie Gone Girl, and for her role in the music video for "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke (now stuck in your head again after a three-year hiatus). She spoke with feminist author Naomi Wolf and discussed promoting body positivity for all women and the importance of owning her sexuality.
Ratajkowski has never been shy about her sexuality or her body. Her 2013 appearance in the "Blurred Lines" video featured her half-naked holding a lamb.
Now she has graduated from posing nude with lambs and Kardashians to posing nude with horses:
In case anyone was wondering if she subjected her bare lady parts to the actual back of a horse, the answer is no. She's wearing a thong which was later retouched. As evidence, here's a classy black and white video of her riding the horse in her thong:
Here's the classic mermaid pose, though she must cover her undercarriage because she's not half-fish:
Despite the retro silliness of posing naked on a horse, Ratajkowski made an excellent point about her experience with Kim Kardashian and the public response when women get naked:
Kim said that to me. You know, when Lena Dunham takes her clothes off, she gets flack, but it's also considered brave; when Justin Bieber takes his shirt off, he's a grown-up. But when a woman who is sexual takes off her top, it plays into something.
She also made sure to mention that while she and other celebs with great bodies are the ones drawing attention, she's trying to make a point for all women and body types:
...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.
For all those haters and trolls that might take offense to her posing nude, or posing nude with animals, here she is fully and modestly clothed with yet another animal:
Hopefully, Ratajkowski can keep fighting the good fight for all women and body types, because not everyone has the time or resources to arrange a nude photo shoot on a horse.
