Emily O’Hara Ratajkowski was born on July 7, 1991 in London, England. She was raised in California. She is of Jewish, Polish, Irish, and German descent. Exposure to the nude female figure in photography and art during her formative years prepared Ratajkowski for her eventual nude and semi-nude appearances before the camera. She wanted to become an actress as a child. She became famous after appearing in nude in the song Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke with model Model Elle Evans.
She has appeared for a lot of top magazines during her career. She is consistently ranked as one of the sexiest women and models. Ratajkowski’s modeling career has progressed from retail adwork to arthouse erotica and high fashion. She appeared on the cover of the March 2012 issue of erotic magazine treats! This led to her being asked to appear in two music videos. Among her other cover appearances are GQ, British GQ, Cosmopolitan, InStyle UK and FHM. She has now been in two Swimsuit Issues.
