Slowly but surely, Emily Ratajkowski is carving out her own space in Hollywood. She began life as a model (no wonder) before making her foray into the world of acting. Born in England to American parents with a Polish grandfather, as a kid, she spent much of her time in Ireland, meaning we automatically adore her. Of course it was her, erm, memorable performance in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video that first caught our attention (and the attention of every bug-eyed teenage boy with unfettered access to the internet the world over, no doubt) and then her role as the needy Andie to Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne in Gone Girl that told the world she was more than just a pretty face. Most recently, she stars alongside Zac Efron in We Are Your Friends, which premiered just this week. This flick is helmed by Max Joseph, who you’ll remember from Catfish, so we’re expecting good things. Also, Zac Efron, hello.
Beyond her acting and modelling prowess, Emily is a style maven in her own right; we’ve literally never seen her have an off moment on the red carpet. Most often, she opts for clean cuts, block colouring and she works her assets to a tee. We wait patiently for an inevitable collaboration with a high street brand and a luxury lipstick endorsement. Seriously, have you seen those smackers?
