The 31 year-old supermodel looked effortless on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, with an item that many of us will have shoved in the back of the wardrobe somewhere.

Em Rata holds a plethora of outfits that one could only dream of owning (or being able to pull off) – but this one is pretty doable. She tucked a simple black polo-neck jumper into the yellow-hued midi-skirt and paired it with some gold jewellery. She completed the look with the comeback trend of the season: 90’s style stiletto pointed mid-calf boots.

Leopard print has been a staple print in wardrobes for decades, seemingly even for those who shy away from wearing patterns. From former First Lady Jackie Kennedy in the 60’s to the Spice Girls’ Sporty Spice in the 90’s, it has stood the test of time in all forms of casual and formal attire alike. But the midi-skirt’s versatility makes it an item that can be dressed up, down, or somewhere in between – as proven by Ms Ratajkowski.

These skirts have officially replaced leopard print coats as our winter staple item. This style has been everywhere the last few seasons, after a surge in popularity around 2019. Notably, the brands that stole the show were Rixo, Topshop and Realisation Par. 

The pairing of Emily’s midi-skirt with her stiletto boots is a match made in heaven. Hailey Beiber recently wore a similar smart/casual look at The Wall Street Journal's WSJ Tech Live Conference last month.

Rumours about Em Rata’s dating life have been spreading like wildfire recently, with the latest news suggesting she is dating none other… than Pete Davidson. (In case you missed it, Davidson’s star-studded line up of ex girlfriends include Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande).  

The Inamorata founder added to speculations by liking a hilarious tweet from iconic singer Dionne Warwick that read ‘I will be dating Pete Davidson next’ under the category of ‘Tweeting it into existence.’ Despite this, the Gone Girl actress made no mention of the suggested budding romance in her latest interview.
