Kim Kardashian, Emily Ratajkowski, Nude, Naked, Topless


Kim Kardashian isn't going to let critics stop her from showcasing her sexuality.

In a photo posted on her Instagram, page Wednesday, the 35-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and model Emily Ratajkowski, 24, partially recreated her now-controversial, censored, nude mirror selfie she had shared earlier this month.

"When we're like...we both have nothing to wear LOL @emrata," Kim joked alongside her new censored pic, which shows them standing next to each other, both topless and flipping the bird.

The original photo, a throwback image of a blonde Kim from 2015, had sparked both positive and negative reactions, including from fellow celebs. Kim fired back with an app post, in which she said she is "empowered" but her body and sexuality and spoke out against "body-shaming and slut-shaming."

Ratajkowski was one of Kim's defenders and had posted a nude selfie of her own at the time.

"However sexual our bodies may be, we need to hve the freedom as women to choose whn & how we express our sexuality," she tweeted Wednesday, alongside her pic with Kim. "We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn't mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated."

"Even if being sexualized by society's gaze is demeaning, there must be a space where women can still be sexual when they choose to be, " Ratajkowski added.

We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn't mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated

Another one of Kim's defenders, Modern Family star Ariel Winter, 18, had said on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O last week she thinks the reality star is "promoting body positivity."

"You know, young girls being able to express that they don't have a stick-thin body—they're curvy. And stick-thin bodies are amazing, you know, those girls are amazing too but I think that everybody's body would be celebrated no matter what it is," she said. "And I think that it's great that she's so comfortable with herself and that she's able to post out there what she wants to post and if she wants to post a nude selfie, she can."

Robin Thicke, Blurred Lines Video


Ratajkowski had famously appeared naked in Robin Thicke's 2013 "Blurred Lines" music video, featuring Pharrell Williams and T.I..

"It's weird to me that the reaction to a woman's naked body is so controversial in our culture," she told InStyle UK in 2015. "My mum taught me to never apologize for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don't think I've ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body."
