Emily Ratajkowski mixes business with pleasure in a lingerie-inspired slip and oversized blazer as she leads the runway for AMI show at Paris Fashion Week
Paris Fashion Week got off to a dazzling start on Wednesday afternoon, as stars gathered on the runway to showcase the AMI Women’s & Men’s Fall Winter 2022 Fashion Show.
Leading the way was Emily Ratajkowski, 30, who put on a show-stopping display in a tiny black slip dress with a lace trim and an oversized blazer while she boosted her height with staggering heels.
Many of the creations by Ami designer Alexandre Mattiussi featured a black base while splashes of colour were injected into the ensembles to provide the sleek and chic Autumn collection.
Emily looked amazing in the chic black ensemble, comprising the slip dress and oversized blazer.
Boosting her height and lengthening her lithe legs, the brunette beauty wore a stunning pair of platform heels with a delicate ankle strap and clutched a chic handbag with a top strap.
She wore her hair in sleek straight lengths falling from a centre parting while her make-up was dewy and natural to allow her striking good looks and stunning ensemble to do all the talking.
Prior to sashaying down the runway, she posed up a storm backstage in a series of striking snaps including a shot while larking around with Alexandre, who kissed the modelling maven on the cheek in a sweet shot.

Joining Emily on the runway was also French actress Isabelle Adjani, 66, and English model Edie Campbell, 31.
Alongside a video of the show on YouTube, designer Alexandre penned: ‘My deepest desire, for the Fall-Winter 22, was to embrace AMI’s roots, to revive and reinterpret the fashion-for-all spirit of our beginnings…
‘I was very much inspired by the fascinating combination of styles and people that you see every day in the métro: this is a perfect place to observe, to feel the social and cultural diversity of the city, to experience the zeitgeist, to watch trends develop…

‘I like to think of it as an urban ballet, where everyone, regardless of age, origins and social status, mingles and coexists in ephemeral, fortuitous encounters. This is how I imagined this quintessential Paris, this elevated reality’.
Having returned to the catwalk amid breaks in the fashion world during the pandemic, Emily left her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, their nine-month-old son Sylvester and their Husky-German Shepherd mix at home.
Though she has continued to focus on her modeling career, Emily recently branched out with her first essay collection, My Body, which was released in November.

The collection features several pieces that delve into how her body has been perceived and judged by people due to her modeling career.
‘One of the subjects that I deal with in the book is how, if you have objectified your own body, then it’s like you’re not capable of having thoughts,’ she told W Magazine in December. ‘Writing and being so honest with myself about those power structures and the ways I was complicit has been such an incredible gift.’
Prior to the collection’s release, she courted headlines after an excerpt leaked in which she accused singer Robin Thicke of sexually assaulting her during the filming of his Blurred Lines video.
Wow! The epic surroundings made the models stand out even further
