Kim Kardashian has taken her topless selfie and upped it a whole human. Model/actress Emily Ratajkowski joined Kim in a public bathroom for a photo with trendy censors across their chests in lieu of shirts. They're flipping matching birds. The caption reads, "When we're like...we both have nothing to wear LOL." Although: if you didn't have anything to wear, how'd you get to that public bathroom?
Ratajkowski is an outspoken supporter of public female nakedness, especially Kim Kardashian's public female nakedness. During Kim's last topless-selfie brouhaha, Ratajkowski tweeted, "Love when a man comments on a woman's decision to post a nude photo. Her body, her career. Sexist bullsh*t." She also referred haters to her Lenny Letter on women and sexuality 101.
Also, the two apparently recruited a floor lamp for lighting improvements. I don't boast any expertise in bathroom interior decorating for selfies; I only hold a basic degree in bathroom selfies, which anyone gets if you signed on to the internet or turned on Good Morning America any time in the last five years. But I know that lighting is big. The takeaway here seems to be: if you need to, bring in reinforcements from the living room.
