Emily Ratajkowski shines in a cute white dress while out and about in New York City on Thursday (May 14).

The 29-year-old model and new mom soaked in the sunshine as she ran her errands around town.

It was just revealed that Emily‘s first NFT as sold for $140,000 to a mystery buyer.

Emily‘s “Buying Myself Back: A Model for Redistribution” image of her standing in front of an image of her that artist Richard Prince co-opted for his own series is now the mystery buyer’s digital property.

As revealed in her essay for The Cut, Emily said she was only paid $150 for that photo, which was featured in one of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issues.

Richard had featured the image in his own show without her consent, and Emily bought it back for more than $80,000.

“Emily owns the image as the image is not part of the medium,” a Christie’s rep explained about the sale. “The work itself is the token alone, and the buyer will receive a token to the work.”

Emily just celebrated her first Mother’s Day along with all these celebrities.
