For two reasons, there are a LOT of heartbroken women and men around the planet after this weekend. Reason one: model, actor and activist Emily Ratajkowski married her partner Sebastian Bear-McClard. Reason two: the high-street suit she did it in is almost sold out everywhere.
She looked particularly unconventional in a black(!) Panama-style hat, complete with a small black veil, and a mustard belted Zara pantsuit. While we will always fantasise about the perfect Oscar De La Renta satin gown or perfectly-falling ruffles from Simone Rocha, we love brides who dare to be different. The fact that her entire outfit is accessible to the vast majority of the world (while still being able to pay rent) is just an added bonus.
Emily Ratajkowski has paved a very definite (and very different) career path in the last 18-months following her continued efforts for supporting female sexuality and self-love, and to regulate the industry’s photoshopping standards. In 2017, she called out the French publication Madame Figaro for altering her cover photo and altering the appearance of her breasts and lips. Ratajkowski shared the before and after photos of the cover on her Instagram, making sure to point out the difference in the caption. Right on, Em.
Congratulations to the happy couple, and to Zara for probably making their yearly profit in one 24-hour period.
