The stunning Emily Ratajkowski – the 26-year-old actress, model and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, covers Glamour UK August 2017. This is her first Glamour magazine cover, and she looks lovely on it. I love the entire look. The background, her hair and makeup score full points.
The cover girl chats with Glamour about everything, from feminism to her career. Here are some excerpts from the interview
“To start saying that certain people need to have a license to be feminist is insane…Emma Watson said feminism isn’t some kind of tool to beat other women with, it’s supposed to be a freedom of choice. And I believe in sexuality. I think it’s a wonderful thing and, if anything, I want women to understand their own sexuality outside of a patriarchal male gaze. We’re the core of sexual beings, and I think that’s something that should be celebrated rather than attacked.”
I agree with her completely. I have written about feminism and me being a feminist a few times on here, and it is a topic I would still keep talking about because I am passionate about it. Feminism should not be a dirty word. It should be celebrated rather than attacked!
On Social Media
“It’s not real, it’s a version of reality, and as a visual person who loves art, photographs, fashion, I’m kind of interested in fantasy…But it’s important to realise that some people have a hard time distinguishing what’s fantasy and what’s reality. We owe it to our followers to show the glam, but then also the real you.”
I love this woman already! She breaks it down so well. Many of us are obsessed with social media and the vanity that comes with it. Many believe all they see online, and aspire to be that, which is all good, but we should remember that what we see on social media is not always the real deal.
