Emily.

What does the word and colour ‘nude’ bring to mind?

Vulnerability and intimacy.

What colour / texture / both do you enjoy wearing the most?

Totally dependent on the time of day, where I’m going and who I’m seeing. I really like jewel tones though.

What do you think is the most important part of our bodies?

The senses.

 

What’s your favourite thing about the body?

Being a vessel that allows you to do essentially anything.

Who do you admire?

My close friends.

How do you think the media has influenced your view on the body?

Back in the day a lot of things I saw on tumblr made me think that if I didn’t have the body of a VS model I wouldn’t be happy. Five years later I see past that and the whole body acceptance/positivity movement has become huge, but I still think aspects of social media like the Instagram explore page can be sketchy in terms of unrealistic body standards.
