Emily Ratajkowski Styles a Giant Leaf as a Shirt
Emily Ratajowski is turning over a new leaf. On March. 3, the model arrived at Paris Fashion Week for the Loewe fall 2023 runway show wearing a faux anthurium flower top. The eccentric design featured skinny chartreuse straps hidden underneath her plant-inspired look. From the center of the backless shirt, a hyper-realistic stigma emerged, fading from dark pink to bright green. She paired the standout piece with low-waisted trousers and sandals, sweeping her hair into a high bun to show off every detail of the flower.
While her leaf top definitely stood out from her front row seat at the show, having fun with fashion is nothing new for Ratajkowski. Previously, she’s stepped out in everything from polarizing thigh-high knee socks to an entirely fishnet dress. In fact, some of her fashion has been so controversial, she still remembers the drama years later, previously referring to a particular plunging dress she wore to the 2016 Harper’s Bazaar Icons party as “the most controversial dress I’ve ever worn.”
“I was basically called out for wanting attention, which I think is interesting because you go to red carpets for attention, basically,” she said in a video with Harper’s Bazaar from October 2022. Now, Ratajkowski continues to keep her fans on their toes with naked dresses and a singular leaf as a top.
Anthuriums, also called flamingo flowers, are known for their bright coloring and unique shape. But considering their reputation as tropical plants with a fondness for humidity and warmth, Ratajkowski’s look was a surprisingly vibrant choice for a cloudy March day in Paris. Could this be the model’s way of ushering in brighter days? Check out her full outfit below.
