ESC: Dare to Wear, Emily RatajkowskiFTN

Hot damn.

If you follow Emily Ratajkowski on Instagram, you're no stranger to her bikini selfies. (Need a reminder? Here's one, here's one and here's another one.) But can you blame her? The model's toned bod is bathing suit ready at all times.

It's no surprise she packed photo-worthy options for her trip to Cannes, however yesterday EmRata wore a harness bottom-ed Velvet Sphynx suit and that got our attention. Is this her way of telling us it's time to step up our swimsuit game? Probably.

Every Denim Jacket You Need This Spring

You heard the woman: It's time to ditch your boring bikinis and invest in some fashion-forward picks (ones with harness details, side ties, cutouts, new shapes, etc.). Not only will you look insanely fierce, but choosing a high-waisted suit with heavy strap action can actually do you some favors (a.k.a. act as water-proof Spanx) while you're romping around on the beach.

Think about it, then let us know.
