Emily Ratajkowski has established herself as a multi-faceted talent -- entrepreneur, writer, actress, model and activist. Most recently, Ratajkowski was commissioned by New York Magazine for a self-written essay entitled "Buying Myself Back,” which led to wide-spread public discourse on image ownership. Immediately following, she landed her first book deal, an essay collection called “My Body,” which will be published by Metropolitan Books in 2021. Since 2017, Ratajkowski has successfully translated her 26 million+ followers on Instagram into a successful direct-to-consumer business via her apparel line INAMORATA, alongside her business partner Kat Mendenhall and a small team of all female employees. What started as a line of bathing suits has since expanded into a multi-category swim, lingerie and ready-to-wear brand that is designed and marketed exclusively by Emily. In 2019, her success was recognized by The Daily with the prestigious Fashion Entrepreneur of the Year Award. In recent years, Ratajkowski has also seen exponential success in her modeling career, where she has claimed the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Vogue Italia, Vogue Australia, Vogue Spain, Vogue Germany, Madame Figaro, GQ, and Glamour Magazine, as well as InStyle’s British, Australian and American editions. She has worked with countless international brands, walking in the Versace, Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana and Miu Miu fashion shows. She is currently the face of L’Oréal’s hair care line Kerastase and formerly of Paco Rabanne’s fragrance Pure XS. She has become a subject of choice for renowned fashion photographers including Inez and Vinoodh, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Testino, and Giampaolo Sgura, among others. On the acting front, she has appeared in multiple films. In 2018, she appeared alongside Amy Schumer in I Feel Pretty. In 2016, she was seen in Joe Swanberg’s anthology series Easy for Netflix. In 2015, she starred in two films for Warner Bros – opposite Zac Efron in coming-of-age drama We Are Your Friends and as Adrien Grenier’s love interest in Entourage: The Movie. She was seen in her first major movie role in 2014, playing Andie in Gone Girl, the David Fincher-directed adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling mystery novel. It was released nationwide by 20th Century Fox and New Regency in October 2014, to critical, award and box office acclaim. Ratajkowski is also outspoken politically, continually using her platform to advocate for her political beliefs. She has been affiliated with Planned Parenthood since 2013. She campaigned for Bernie Sanders in both 2016 and 2020. In 2018, she was arrested in Washington D.C. for protesting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. She was born in London and raised in Encinitas, California. Her parents are both artists; her father a painter and her mother an English professor and writer. Their careers afforded Ratajkowski the opportunity to live and travel throughout Europe at a young age, spending much of her time in Ireland and Spain. She spent one year studying Art at UCLA before leaving to pursue her career. Currently, she splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City.Read more Read less
