The Best Bikini Looks of Emily Ratajkowski Ever


It’s incredible that one video has catapulted Emily Ratajkowski from virtual unknown to a worldwide phenomenon. Her fame could also be partially attributable to how perfectly a bikini fits on Emily Ratajkowski. Instyle interviewed the Los Angeles resident looking back at how she’s become this year’s “it” girl and what makes her tick. Rajatkowski broke into the mainstream dancing with Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams in the video for the 2013’s smash “Blurred Lines.” Instyle noted that even today, drunken young men still approach Ratajkowski in bars and quote the line, “You the hottest bitch in this place!” From there, high-profile movie roles and modeling shoots were happening every hour. Let’s get to know Ms. Rajatkowski better.

Somehow in the torrent of this global fame, Emily Ratajkowski remains down to earth and avoiding the dangers of instant fame.

Cosmopolitan Model and Actress

Born in London, Rajatkowski is of British, German, Polish, and Jewish ancestry. F&TS head loves Eastern European women, especially Poles. No wonder we are such a fan. Rajatkowski grew up outside San Diego, California, and started modeling at 14. Rajatkowski has become an outspoken advocate for women embracing their own sexuality and power. She won’t be defined as just a bikini model. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. A Vogue magazine article said about her upbringing, “Having grown up in a progressive household, Ratajkowski is very comfortable with nudity, and is unafraid of baring it all for the camera—especially for a compelling role. “I’m not worried about nudity,” she has told the New York Times. “I’d rather play a complex character who has a love scene than a stupid girl who’s just a girl next door.”

Her multimedia domination has led to new opportunities, including roles on the big screen. Rajatkowski was cast in the David Fincher film “Gone Girl” co-starring opposite Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.
