Emily Ratajkowski Dresses Up a Delicate Black Slip Dress With the Perfect Holiday Boots

Emily Ratajkowski embraced the holiday cheer and offered an inside look at her Christmas festivities, including the fun twist she put on a little black dress.

The My Body author shared a carousel of photos and videos to Instagram on Monday that once again proved black can be festive. EmRata looked stunningly merry in a shiny midi slip dress that featured thin straps and lace detailing along the cups. She paired her frock with fabulous shoes worth celebrating—black leather heeled boots that featured jubilant red and golden yellow details and a pointed-toe. Ratajkowski glammed up with a glossy lip and dark eye makeup, including black winged eyeliner. She let loose by wearing her rich brown hair down around her shoulders and kept her jewelry minimal but luxurious with a diamond ring.

In addition to posing for photos at her Christmas dinner table, the model included the sweetest video of herself and her 2-year-old son Sly having a joyous dance before sharing an adorable embrace. In another slide, Sly sits on Ratajkowski’s lap wearing a spirited red polo shirt by Ralph Lauren, while EmRata cozies up in a brown turtleneck sweatshirt by Joah Brown and circle-framed glasses. Ratajkowski also gave her followers a blast from the past with a photo of an ornament that holds a picture day photo of her kid self. She proved she has been a style icon all her life, donning a green-and-white beaded choker, white lace blouse, and star stickers on her eyes in the school snap.

The former actor stepped out last week in another pair of statement shoes. That time, hot red snakeskin boots that featured a tapered square-toe and a high spool heel. Her bold, fiery footwear peeked out the bottom of her wide-legged brown corduroy pants, which she cinched at the waist with a wide black belt and paired with a leather trench coat that featured white fur trim.
