TOP MODEL SECRETS

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI

She’s considered one of the sexiest women in the world and is quickly transcending from fashion model to respected actress. Meet curvy beauty Emily Ratajkowski.

Emily Ratajkowski was born in London to American parents, and is of German, Irish and Polish-Jewish descent. She was raised in California, and now spends her time between Los Angeles and New York. 

In 2013, Robin Thicke’s hit song Blurred Lines reached the top of the charts around the world and its music video became a hot topic in the media – by many considered both sexist and degrading to women. Despite the provocative nature of the song and video, it was thanks to it that Emily Ratajkowski’s career took of. A few months later, she was casted as Ben Affleck’s role character's mistress in Gone Girl and was named Woman of the Year by Esquire – before Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence. Her first leading role is in the upcoming film We Are Your Friends with Zac Efron, and she stars in the much-anticipated Entourage film. 

Emily Ratajkowski studied at UCLA for one year before dropping out to model full time. She’s been featured in GQ, Sports Illustrated, Love Magazine and in Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book. She has also appeared in campaigns for Yamamay and Rag & Bone, and is currently ranked as one of the sexiest models in the world by MODELS.com.
