Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski is making waves on the internet for her recent feature in Harper’s Bazaar magazine—but not for the reasons you might think.
As usual, Emily is STUNNING in the photograph, but there is one thing that you don’t usually see in such a magazine feature: armpit hair. Emily says she chose to let her underarm hair grow to reinvent people’s perception of feminism and what it means to be sexy.
It didn’t take long for trolls and supporters to chime in on the subject. While many are applauding Emily’s unapologetic boldness in doing her own thing, others are calling it gross and unhygenic.

Isn’t that what feminism is about—choice?” @emrata writes about exploring what it means to be hyper feminine for our September 2019 issue. Tap the link in bio to read more.
