It’s not the first time Ratajkowski has stripped off for a photo-shoot in New York. The body-confident model was the face of DKNY’s underwear Spring/Summer advertising campaign in 2017 and was seen walking her dog along Bedford Street in just her underwear. For this photo-shoot, a convenience store called Candy Shop 93 located on 3rd Avenue between 93rd and 94th Streets in Fort Hamilton, Bay Ridge was used.
