Model, Actress, Activist and Entrepreneur
Model, actress, entrepreneur and activist EMILY RATAJKOWSKI has established herself as one of the premiere faces in fashion, film and pop culture. Ratajkowski is an advocate for women’s equality, known for her powerful op-eds in publications including Lenny Letter and Glamour.
Next up, Ratajkowski will star in romance-thriller Lying & Stealing opposite Theo James set to release July 12, 2019. Most recently, Ratajowski starred opposite Aaron Paul in Welcome Home, a thriller directed by George Ratcliff for Voltage Pictures; Anthony Byrne’s psychological thriller In Darkness; and I Feel Pretty alongside Amy Schumer.
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.
In recent years, Ratajkowski has seen exponential success in her modeling career, where she has claimed the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Marie Claire, Vogue Spain, Vogue Germany, Madame Figaro, GQ, and Glamour Magazine, as well as InStyle’s British, Australian and American editions. 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. Ratajkowski has since appeared in advertising campaigns for Kérastase, FRYE, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Twinset and Rag & Bone. She designed her own handbag for a collaboration with The Kooples and has her own capsule collection with American fashion retailer, Nasty Gal. Ratajkowski launched swimwear line, Inamorata, in 2017 and was joined by partner Kat Mendenhall in 2018. Inamorata began as a bathing suit collection, and has since expanded into lingerie and bodysuits, staples in every woman’s wardrobe. Rejecting the tired old myths about body image, INAMORATA WOMAN embraces the full spectrum of the female form–and makes her look and feel good in the process.
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 lead Ratajkowski to live and travel throughout Europe at a young age, spending much of her time in Ireland and Spain.
She splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City.
