Actor Emily Ratajkowski covers the August 2017 issue of Allure Magazine. Stylist Alex White chooses designs from Marc Jacobs, Lisa Marie Fernandez, Prada and more in photographs by Daniel Jackson.
Interviewed by Loren Savini, Ratajkowski is as comfortable talking art and politics as she is about breasts and sexuality.
“It really bothers me that people are so offended by breasts,” she says, as a white-haired woman, clearly eavesdropping, shoots us a punishing look. Ratajkowski is dressed like the world’s most conservative rock star — flared forest-green velvet pants and a black double-breasted jacket with her hair tucked into the back. Stevie Nicks in a boardroom. And she either doesn’t notice or doesn’t care about the double, triple, and quadruple takes going on around her. “That’s when I realized how fucked our culture is,” she continues. “When we see breasts, we don’t think of beauty and femininity. We think of vulgar, oversexualized images.”
And with that observation, the talk turns to art, with the two large-breasted women scoping out the Whitney Biennial in New York's meatpacking district.
