Why going naked like Emily Ratajkowski is the ultimate mood booster: Psychologist reveals what celebs lockdown look mean

CELEBRITIES have been showing us what they are wearing around their houses as they are stuck inside for self-isolation. 

From ballgowns and thigh-high boots to lingerie and chic pant suits, the stars have not held back with their out-there looks.

Fashion Psychologist Dawnn Karen, who is the author of Dress Your Best Life, spoke to Fabulous about what their outfits can reveal about their personality. 

Emily Ratajkowski

Model Emily Ratajkowski often shares naked or near-naked shots and her recent isolation photo in her birthday suit seemed very typical for her. 

Dawnn said: “Emily is stabilising her mood by doing repetitious wardrobe complex which is where you wear similar things every day, such as being naked or in lingerie.

“When she is wearing these same looks, her mood is not fluctuating.

"Given Emily is model she has an extroverted job, and she recharges when she is interacting with others.

"She is trying to recharge herself by interacting with people online.

"That need is then being fulfilled."

Amy Childs

Dawnn said that Amy Childs was also trying to achieve a similar result by showing off this lingerie snap.

She said the Towie star could also be trying to boost likes online to feel connected.

The fashion psychologist said: "You could also say she could be intimately deprived if she's not self-quaranting with a partner."

Amanda Holden 

Amanda has often raised eyebrows with her glam looks and has been pictured dressed to the nines, even while stuck at home. 

Dawnn advised that she is also trying to enhance her mood and to stay positive while shut away. 

She also said that Amanda could be “using her outfit to help separate the different activities at home.”

Kate Middleton

This week, Kensington Palace shared an image of the Duchess of Cambridge, 38, in a pink wool-blend Marks & Spencer suit, as she spoke to Catherine Roche, the CEO of the children’s charity Place2Be. 

Dawn said: “Some of us have what is being deemed as an essential job so must continue working despite being quarantined within our homes. 

“Kate Middleton, instead of taking calls in her pyjamas, decided to wear a full-length suit.

“Wearing this suit obviously activates this level of productivity for her, if she was to wear something like pyjamas when answering the phone, she would be the type of person who wouldn’t feel most productive. 

“So wearing a suit enables her to accomplish the task at hand.”

Kate has not only worn this incredible pink suit at home, but was also pictured wearing it to a visit to the London Ambulance Service 111 control room in Croydon on March 19.

Stacey Solomon

Loose Woman star Stacey, 30, is currently quarantined with partner Joe Swash and her three kids in Essex and has shared numerous photos in snug-looking loungewear with her millions of followers. 

Dawnn said: “She is in an oversized sweater. This look is totally antithetical to Kate’s dress. 

“She is a singer and TV star which can indicate that she has an extroverted personality. 

“People with extroverted personalities thrive from being around other people and get energy from others to function truly in themselves. 

“She may be feeling isolation and may need a hug and wearing this comfy oversized sweater almost feels like a hug and makes her feel comforted during this time of severe isolation.”

Stacey Dooley

Strictly star Stacey grabbed attention when she shared an image of her dressed in a ball gown during isolation at home. 

Dawnn said she seems to be participating in “mood enhancement dress to optimise the mood.”

This allows her to avoid getting down, which is especially important given the tough circumstances for many. 

Dawnn also pointed out that Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry could be trying to do the same thing, when pictured in a going out dress inside.

Mrs Hinch

Cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, 30, shared an image to her Instagram followers in a  comfy-looking lounge set.  

Dawn said: “She is showing mood illustration dress, which is when you dress to perpetuate one’s current mood or to maintain an equilibrium. 

“So Sophie Hinchliffe wearing pyjamas at home with her family is trying to maintain this mood of ‘I’m at home relaxing’ to help her cope with quarantine life. 

“If you are perpetually in your pyjamas, you feel relaxed and this helps to off-shoot the anxiety that is surrounding this pandemic.”

Paris Hilton

Dawnn said Paris Hilton has also opted for an exposed look after sharing a racy snap in thigh-high boots and a leotard during her lockdown.

She said this could also be an example of “repetitious wardrobe complex.”

This could be helping the glamorous heiress to be feeling calm and in touch with her typical self while stuck at home. 

Liz Hurley

Dawnn said that Liz is wearing a very short dress in her isolation snap, and if this isn’t a typical dress for her to wear around the house, could also be practising “mood enhancement”.

Liz is known for being a social butterfly and is regularly pictured looking glam at parties. 

By wearing a stylish dress in isolation, it could be helping her to feel a sense of normality and refusal to let go of her usual routine.
