Emily Ratajkowski has shared a behind-the-scenes peek from a daring modeling gig.
The model and My Body author posted several pics from her recent photo shoot, as well as a video that seems more familiar from a Marvel set than a fashion shoot. In the clip, Ratajkowski hangs from two stunt cables while wearing nothing but a harness, silver underwear, and a pair of black ankle strap stilettos.
After an offscreen voice counts down, the star drops from the ceiling as she strikes an elegant pose. Additional shots show her hanging from the wires as large fans blow through her dark brown hair.
“I do my own stunts 😎,” she captioned the post, tagging the shoot’s creative director Torso.
The model has returned from her New Year’s vacation to a busy work week. She was recently announced as the new ambassador for Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb perfume, and on Thursday, she gave a commencement speech for Hunter College’s class of 2023. In a clip shared on Instagram, she spoke to the students about imposter syndrome and the importance of celebrating their loved ones.
“It’s hard to celebrate myself, not as an imposter in a body, but as a soul deserving of joy. And I bet a few people here feel the same way,” she said. “So, if you can’t celebrate yourself, maybe do it for others; for the friends and family that greeted you when you returned home after your long day, who listened to you complain about your workload and your schedule, who encouraged you when you were filled with stress and hopelessness — for the loved ones who fill this audience, who can remember when you first had the idea to try and get this degree and cheered you on when you were sure you’d never make it.”
“The people in your life who love you are a precious gift; treat them as such, enjoy them as such, celebrate with them,” she continued. “Congratulations to the class of 2023.”
