If there's anyone who knows how to marry the worlds of fashion and activism, it's InStyle's March cover girl Emily Ratajkowski. The actress and model has simultaneously made a name for herself as both a style star and an advocate for women's rights.

"I think you can 100 percent be a feminist and still love fashion," she says in a behind-the-scenes video while shooting the cover. "I think you can also be a feminist and not love fashion. Feminism is about choices and women deciding what they want."

While she's all wisdom now, there are a few life lessons she'd like to give younger self: "Be less worried about what you're wearing and how your hair looks, and more just about connecting with people." Preach, Emrata.
