Emily Ratajkowski and Kim Kardashian have joined forces on Instagram, posting a joint topless selfie to make a point about women's bodies.

The 24-year-old actress and model has been vocal about being "shamed" for her sexuality, previously describing her experience in Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter.

"The implication is that to be sexual is to be trashy because being sexy means playing into men’s desires,” she wrote. “To me, ‘sexy’ is a kind of beauty, a kind of self-expression, one that is to be celebrated, one that is wonderfully female.”

Emily teamed up with the 35-year-old reality tv star, who claims she was "slut shamed" for posting a nude selfie a few weeks ago.

When we're like...we both have nothing to wear LOL @emrata

After Kim came under fire for her "I have nothing to wear LOL" selfie, in an entirely nude throwback shot to her pre-baby body, she hit back at critics in an essay published on her website.

"In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. [...] It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago," she said. "And people still want to talk about it?!?!

"I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn’t have to constantly be on the defence, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago.

What to wear tonight? #PFW

"Let’s move on, already. I have."

Since posting the picture of them giving the finger in a bathroom mirror, the famous twosome are being praised and scrutinised in equal measure.

"However sexual our bodies may be, we need to hve [sic]the freedom as women to choose whn [sic]& how we express our sexuality," Emily captioned the picture on Twitter.

"We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality,” she wrote on Instagram.

Kim, however, wrote: "When we're like...we both have nothing to wear LOL @emrata" so it looks like they got their wires crossed somewhere on the message they were sending.
