Emily Ratajkowski won’t let the weather stop her from wearing what she wants. The model’s latest version of the classic LBD look featured opaque black tights for warmth—a nostalgic throwback to the early 2000s—but she showed just as much skin as usual. The My Body author walked the red carpet for an event hosted by Expedia Group in New York City on Nov. 13, where she donned a fun and flirty V-neck black micro dress featuring red rosette details, a dash of underboob and cut-outs all the way down the center. 

The mom of one, who shares her young son Sylvester with her ex-husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, paired the bold look with strappy black stilettos and a matching small purse.

The High Low With EmRata podcast host styled her dark brown locks to be super smooth and straight and her bangs looked freshly blown out. She opted for her signature sultry foxy glam, including wispy top and bottom lashes, brown smudged-out eyeliner, faux sunburnt cheeks and an overlined glossy peach-taupe lip.

“It’s a really amazing thing to work in an industry where you get to work with creative people who care so much about beauty and have found ways to express themselves through it. I think growing older, I’ve been able to find the things that I like and take things from those amazing people. Knowing what works for me is very inspiring and it makes me feel really confident. That’s my signature,” the 32-year-old said in a recent interview with Elle. “I used to really try to play a part based on the space that I was entering. If I was trying to be sexually attractive, I would wear a lot of makeup. If I was wanting to be taken seriously by an academic crowd, I would wear less and that applied also for how I dressed. I think now, I just don’t give a s---. I just don’t care so much about the perception that people have of me. This is who I am and they’ll figure it out and if they don’t, that’s on them.”
