Emily Ratajkowski’s found fame by showing off her fabulous body.
But Emily Ratajkowski is slamming photographer Jonathan Leder for publishing previously unseen photos of her in various states of undress including completely naked.
On Wednesday the model, 25, tweeted her anger, stating: ‘This book and the images within them are a violation.’
The explicit photo shoot was done in May 2012 before the brunette stunner grabbed the world’s attention by starring in Robin Thicke’s 2013 Blurred Lines music video.
I’ve been resisting speaking publicly on the recently released photos by Jonathan Leder to avoid giving him publicity. But I’ve had enough
This book and the images within them are a violation.
5 out of the now 100s of released photos were used for what they were intended: an artful magazine shoot back in 2012
These photos being used w/out my permission is an example of exactly the opposite of what I stand for:
women choosing when and how they want to share their sexuality and bodies.
Leder has published the collection of erotic shots in a book published on Imperial Pictures Publishing and some of the pictures have been widely reproduced by media outlets and magazines.
News of the book and its photos broke last week and Emily explained on Twitter: ‘I’ve been resisting speaking publicly on the recently released photos by Jonathan Leder to avoid giving him publicity. But I’ve had enough.’
She explained that the Polaroids were taken for an artful magazine spread and she never intended for the unused ones to be published.
‘These photos being used w/out my permission is an example of exactly the opposite of what I stand for: women choosing when and how they want to share their sexuality and bodies,’ she tweeted.
Earlier this year, Ratajkowski was swift to come to the defense of reality star Kim Kardashian after she was criticized for posting a nude full frontal selfie with her breasts and groin covered with black bars.
‘When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL,’ she captioned the snap.
It came in for both applause and criticism and caused a debate over whether women should or shouldn’t show off their bodies in such a way, especially as the picture was posted on International Women’s Day.
Ratajkowski responded to the media furor by posting her own nude photograph, showing the top half of her body with one arm covering her ample bosom.
Later, the two joined forces to snap a joint topless selfie showing them in a bathroom mirror and wearing nothing but trousers.
