Emily Ratajkowski has returned to the runway since becoming a mom to show off Rihanna’s latest designs.
The model and actress took a six-month hiatus following the birth of her son, Apollo Sylvester. Now, she’s back on the runway.
For her first act on the runway, she showcased the latest Savage X Fenty designs by donning a skimpy two-piece bikini and leopard-print heels. The set was accessorized with large gold jewelry, including hoops, and a link bracelet. She also styled her hair in intricate braids, while her bronzed skin matched her nails.
Ratajkowski delivered her baby in March and since then, she has been showing off her post-baby body in multiple sexy outfits ever since, including the minuscule bikini bra which barely covered her boobs and left little to the imagination.
Footage of her walk for the Savage X Fenty show was captured on camera. This would air exclusively on Amazon Prime on September 24, 2021.
Before this, Ratajkowski had plenty of practice rocking swimwears since welcoming baby Syl; her maternity leave included vacations and getaways to Turks and Caicos and the Amalfi Coast.
Savage X Fenty Show
Rihanna announced the Savage X Fenty show last week describing it as a combination of “fashion, dance, music, and iconic architecture.”
According to a press release, she mentioned that this year’s show would highlight the newest tapestry of styles through “subtle-yet-impactful scenic elements, lighting, and filming techniques.” She also added that the upcoming drops would feature strong lines that would “trace contours of the body and unconventional silhouettes that push the boundaries of individuality to bring out the baddie in everyBODY.”
She took to her Instagram to post a sneak peek while captioning it with, “Oh, you think you are ready?!”
Rihanna launched the show in 2019. It featured exclusive performances by Travis Scott, Rosalia, Bad Bunny, and Roddy Rich. Bella Hadid, Lizzo, Willow Smith, Demi Moore, Paris Hilton, Normani, and Cara Delevingne was amongst her models.
According to Forbes, Rihanna amassed an estimated 1.7billion dollars since the launch of her line. Over two years now, Fenty X Savage has achieved remarkable successes by disrupting the lingerie industry.
Following the inception of her brand, she became the world’s richest singer and second wealthiest woman in entertainment on the planet.
However, her successes weren’t without a hurdle. The “Work” singer was forced to shut down her fashion line in the face of the pandemic after less than two years in production.
Who is Emily Ratajkowski?
Ratajkowski is a 25-year-old American model and actress. She started acting at a young age and was barely a teenager when she became a model. Her first model appearance was for the cover of the March 2012 issue of “Treats!,” an erotic magazine.
She then went on to appear in two music videos; Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Maroon 5’s “Love Somebody.” Over the years, she’s worked with Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana, Versace, and many more. She’s also featured in shows and movies like “ICarly,” “Gone Girl,” “We Are Your Friends,” and “Entourage.”
Ratajkowski is also a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood. She’s an advocate of women’s health rights and believes women should be in touch with their bodies and be free to express themselves.
She started her foray into acting with a role in “The Little Match Girl,” where she played Elsa. She also studied at the North Coast Repertory Theater School in Southern California. Ratajkowski got married to Sebastian Bear-McClard in 2018 and they share a four-month-old son, Sylvester.
Public Backlash On Ratajkowski’s Parenting Style
Recently, the model took to her Instagram stories to respond to trolls who called her a “shitty mother.”
She was criticized for the way she held her baby, as people called out the fact that her son’s head wasn’t supported properly. She wrote on her Instagram and referenced when Britney Spears was scrutinized for driving with her baby on her lap.
“We talk about how we have to ‘do better as a culture. Meanwhile, my comments are filled with awful remarks about how I don’t deserve to be a mom. Shame on you all,” she concluded.
On March 8, 2021, Ratajkowski and her husband welcomed their son to the world. She shared a candid photo of herself and her baby on her Instagram.
“Sylvester Apollo Bear has joined us on the earthside. Sly arrived 3/8/21 on the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life,” she wrote underneath the picture.
Prior to this, the model revealed to Vogue back in October that she was expecting. She also shared with the magazine that she won’t be doing a gender reveal. She was going to raise the child non-binary and by 18, their child would inform them of their gender.
