Emily Ratajkowski has been an Instagram favorite of many people online. Her sexy, seductive, and stunning photos have racked up over millions of likes on the app. But, she’s not just a model–Ratajkowski has been an advocate for women’s rights and body positivity for years. After starring nude in the “Blurred Lines” music video, many slammed the model, saying she was sexualizing herself for fame. But, in countless interviews, Ratajkowski spoke out against the patriarchy sexualizing a woman’s body and reclaiming her body and her sexuality as her power.
Recently, Ratajkowski was seen with Sebastian Bear-McClard, her new boyfriend. And, this week, after only dating for several weeks–the two tied the knot in a very quiet wedding in New York City–at City Hall. Bear-McClard is a Hollywood producer and actor, although many people claim they have “never heard of him.”
In short, Ratajkowski is doing what she always does–or tries to do–in her career: break down the narratives that people have long followed and walk to her own beat. Getting married in a small, private ceremony at City Hall defies the stereotypical norms of marriage for many people.
Since the news broke, fans on Twitter have been freaking out over not only Ratajkowski’s decision to wed in a gorgeous orange suit–but the fact that we all can’t marry her at all now, bummer.

Emily Ratajkowski got married unexpectedly in a New York courthouse, wore an orange suit with a black hat, and brought her pug. She just lived out a set of life goals I didn’t even know I had???

congrats to Emily Ratajkowski for getting married to that guy who liked her butt pic on instagram, i bet his gf who hosted a whole roundtable on the verge about why he did that feels pretty silly now

Shoutout to @emrata for helping to break the standard on marriage. I got married in a courthouse too and never regretted it. Good to see some ladies don't care about overly indulgent, absurdly extravagant events to prove "true" love.

Very disappointed that, now that I'm an officiant, I wasn't asked to officiate Emily Ratajkowski's wedding at City Hall. "Emily, do you take this man…seriously, this man? To be your lawfully wedded husband? This man?" pic.twitter.com/wvSQB4TyNJ
