Late last week Blurred Lines star Emily Ratajkowski set tongues wagging when she wore an extremely plunging Julien Macdonald gown to a New York Fashion Week event.

 

And while we thought the actress pulled off the eye-catching LBD like only she could, critics like Fashion Police’s Tim Gunn weren’t quite as impressed with the navel skimming ensemble.

 

According to Us Weekly, the 63-year-old fashion consultant was quick to brand Emily’s outfit as “appallingly vulgar and revealing” during a televised discussion of the gown.

While claiming he wasn’t shocked by the dress because he “lived through the 1960s”, the Project Runway co-host did go as far as to suggest the dress would be enough to turn him off his food.  

 

Clearly unimpressed with Tim’s comments, Emily has taken to Twitter to defend her outfit of choice.

 

In a series of tweets – which begin with a reference to a recent article she wrote in defence of female sexuality - the avid feminist said: “When I wrote my Glamour article, I was just thinking of men who call women attention seeking for being sexy.”

 


 

“I wasn’t thinking of the hosts of nationally televised shows who call women vulgar because they can see their stomachs.”

 

The outspoken star continued by highlighting the way in which male voices try to dictate how women dress.

 

“Western men in 2016: Want to ban women abroad from voluntarily covering themselves at the beach then want women to cover up their ‘vulgar’ bodies at home.”

 


 

She finished be asking: “Who controls women’s bodies in 2016?”

 

“It’s 2016.  Why keep trying to dictate what women can wear?”
