Emily Ratajkowski proved the power of daring layers on the red carpet for Variety‘s Power of Women: New York event on Thursday night.
The “My Body” author posed in an all-black outfit for the occasion. Her ensemble’s core featured a thin bra top, as well as low-rise pants with front split hems. Layered atop the set was a black turtleneck minidress in an open, crochet-like knit with a fringed hem. A nude manicure and split bangs finished her look.
Ratajkowski’s footwear of choice also took the slick route, consisting of a pair of black mules. Featuring curved toe straps, the set added a Y2K-worthy twist to her outfit. Though her heels were hidden beneath her pants’ legs, it’s likely the set featured flared or stiletto heels totaling 3-4 inches in height, similar to trending styles of the moment.
