Say what you will about Emily Ratajkowski, but she certainly doesn’t fear the spotlight. This model and actress has what some would call a controversial claim to fame: After all, her breakout appearance was in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video, which, unsurprisingly, revealed just that — blurred lines, especially when it came to sexism in the music and film industry.

But again, Emily has never feared the spotlight, and she’s no stranger to showing skin when it comes to her sartorial choices on the red carpet. While sheer details and panels are pretty much a must-have for any contemporary model, Rata doesn’t overdo the transparent fabric factor, instead usually opting for cutout silhouettes and plunging necklines. When you’ve got it, flaunt it, after all! Keep reading to check out some of the actress and model’s most daring little numbers on the red carpet.
