For those who’ve already eaten all their goods from their advent calendar this weekend, don’t worry because the fun isn’t over yet. LOVE Magazine has created their own advent calendar, only theirs is in video form ánd contains Emily Ratajkowski. Because who else?! The 26-year-old model is seen rolling around on a table filled with pasta, olive oil and red wine while wearing nothing but a sexy lingerie set. At least she keeps her hands warm with a pair of gloves. Priorities, right.
Can’t get enough? Don’t worry because LOVE Magazine is doing advent calendars the right way by releasing a video every day. Additionally, each video is accompanied by the hashtag #StayStrong as part of the #metoo movement to empower women in the entertainment industry. Emily adds: ‘I’m tired of having to consider how I might be perceived by men if I wear a short skirt or post a sexy Instagram. I want to do what I want to do.’ If that means rolling around in pasta, please do so Emily.
🎄On the 3rd day of Christmas my true #LOVEADVENT gave to me @emrata’s amazing polemic on female empowerment. “To me, female sexuality and sexiness, no matter how conditioned it may be by a patriarchal ideal, can be incredibly empowering for a woman if she feels it is empowering to her. The way I dress, act, flirt, dance, have sex – those are my decisions and they shouldn’t be impacted by men. Being sexy is fun and I like it. I should never have to apologize for that. My life is on my terms and if I feel like putting on sexy underwear, it’s for me. Personal choice is the core ideal in my concept of feminism. Katie directed us to say ‘Stay Strong’ at the end of each video and I think it’s a message from one woman to another. You’re watching a video of a girl grinding in lingerie or whatever else and she is looking into the camera at the end saying, ‘you do you, however YOU want to, fuck the rest’. In the wake of the Harvey fallout and women coming forward with incredible amounts of sexual harassment cases, I have been so disappointed to hear women talk about “modesty” and “our responsibility” as if we need to, yet again, adjust to make it “easier” for the rest of the world. I’m tired of having to consider how I might be perceived by men if I wear the short skirt or post a sexy Instagram. I want to do what I want to do. Feminism isn’t about adjusting, it’s about freedom and choice. Do you think viewers will understand that, given the current wider conversation about the sexual objectification of women? why or why not? What are the risks? This is something I’ve battled with personally and publicly. I’ve had men comment on sexy images of me online and say “this is empowering to you? Ha! I just masturbated to it so hope you feel good about yourself!” I guess that’s the way people can react, which ironically, ultimately serves my point. I don’t care about your reaction or what you do with my expression of self. In fact, it has nothing to do with you at all and that’s the point-which is why it feels good. Ultimately, if a woman wants to wear a burka or nothing at all, it’s great if it’s what she wants and feels good about.”💥#STAYSTRONG Link in bio to full film
⭐ On the 2nd day of Christmas my true #LOVEADVENT gave to me @theashleygraham doing the sled pull on a New York sidewalk. ‘Shooting the Advent calendar,’ says Ashley ‘is a true expression of self-love and empowers women to embrace their own sexuality. This year we’re reminding women to #STAYSTRONG because we are powerful, we are resilient, and we run the world.’ ⭐ Director @philpoynter Fashion Editor @sallylyndley Make-up @hungvanngo Hair @luke_chamberlain Casting @bitton and @twodadstwokids Music @nathangregorywilkins and @richardxbm DOP @hashtaghankoff Production @serlinassociates Post Production @millchannel and @millbeautychannel Link in bio to full film
