Emily Ratajkowski, the 23-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model who sauntered around in nothing but panties for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, told Ocean Drive magazine she did it for the ladies, not men.
“The female body is a beautiful thing, and it should be embraced and celebrated.”

“It wasn’t for men—it was for myself and for other women.”
Ratajkowski said society needs to stop being offended by nudity, calling it the “last step.”
“We’re at an interesting time where women have been told to take the pill is cool, to sleep with whomever you want, or wear what you want. But if you’re naked, it can be offensive or sexist in some way. That’s the last step our culture needs to deal with. We have this culture of men, especially, watching pornography, but then offended by a classic nude portrait or photograph, and I’ve never felt that way.”
She is obviously very comfortable in her own skin, but told OD she originally turned down the music video, and later changed her mind. We are sure glad she did. (RELATED: Emily Ratajkowski Babysits In Teeny Bikini)
Ratajkowski was also on July’s cover of GQ, where she stripped down (again) and wore nothing but sand and a lei.

Ratajkowski has also taken a swing at acting, playing Ben Affleck’s mistress Andie in their new thriller “Gone Girl,” out next month. Read the rest of her interview with Ocean Drive here. (RELATED: Emily Ratajkowski Teases Lingerie In New Shoot)
We just hope Ratajkowski keeps doing what she’s doing.
