Emily Ratajkowski Shines In Show-Stopping Gold Gown

A dazzling take on the naked dress

Emily Ratajkowski isn’t afraid to make a statement on the red carpet, and when she stepped out at the VIP preview of the new site for Annabel’s in London, it was no exception.

The 25-year-old made a bold statement in a gold, geometric print Julian Macdonald gown complete with sheer panels across the body and down the sides spilling down into a long, flowing train.

The look was first seen on the runway in the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2016 show.

The model and actress kept her beauty look minimal, with her brunette hair tied back in a bun, and a soft, smoky eye.

Emily recently opened up about being called an “attention whore” for what she chooses to wear.

“Commenters said I had ‘an excess of beauty and lack of brain’ and told me to ‘shut up and show us your tits,” she told Glamour magazine.

“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,” she continues.

The Gone Girl star then explains that she is perceived differently because she’s a woman, not a man.

“I realised 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 concludes the article by pointing out that women do not owe any explanations to anyone.

“We shouldn’t have to apologise for wanting attention either. We don’t owe anyone an explanation. It’s not our responsibility to change the way we are seen—it’s society’s responsibility to change the way it sees us.”
