Model Emily Ratajkowski has revealed she regularly channels reality star Kim Kardashian, but her reason why may surprise you.

The 26-year-old told ELLE Australia she felt Kimmy K was an “incredible feminist” and praised the way she handles the constant scruitiny of being in the limelight.

“I think Kim Kardashian is actually an incredible feminist,” she said to the publication. “I channel her when I’m having a bad day.”

“I’m like, ‘Here’s someone who really doesn’t give a sh*t what anyone thinks.’ I would like to be that person who is above it all, and she is that way,’ she went on.

The model — who is known for her racy snaps — also opened up about how women should be supporting one another, instead of judging each other.

“I think it’s really bad for women, this competition and ‘judginess’,” she said, describing that she is “objectified” every day. 

However, just like mum-of-three Kim, Em confesses she tries to ignore the haters and says it’s more important that she likes what she’s wearing than pleasing other people.

The model’s frankness was reportedly why the model was chosen for the magazine feature in the first place, and we just can’t get enough.

We can’t wait to see what she conquers next.
