Profile Bio Text
Emily Ratajkowski was born in London, England to a Polish father and a British mother, who is an English professor and writer, whom Emily describes as a "feminist and intellectual". She was raised in Encinitas, California. She lived in and travelled to many parts of Europe at a young age and spent much of her childhood in Bantry, Ireland, and Majorca, Spain. Her parents are both artists; her father a painter of Polish descent.
Ratajkowski was signed by Ford Models at age 14, she continued to attend high school in San Diego, California while she modeled and acted in Los Angeles. She attended UCLA for one year as a fine arts major, when she decided to pursue her career in modeling full-time.
Ratajkowski was signed by Ford Models at age 14 but finished high school and went to college for one year. She worked for Forever 21 and Nordstrom, but became recognized as a fashion model after shooting several campaigns and editorials with photographer Tony Duran.
As an actress, her most notable role was "Tasha" in Nickelodeon's iCarly from 2009 to 2010.
She began shooting more fashion editorials and appeared nude on the cover of Treats! Magazine, which she credits for bringing her the two high-profile music video gigs, which she did not audition for. She has worked with photographers such as Tony Kelly, with whom she shot the cover of GQ Turkey. She was featured in a Carl's Jr. commercial,with Sara Jean Underwood, in August 2012. Ratajowski's fellow model from Frederick's of Hollywood Nina Agdal would appear in another Carl's, Jr. ad six months later.
"Blurred Lines" performance[edit source]
In 2013 she appeared in two music videos: Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell's "Blurred Lines" and Maroon 5's "Love Somebody". She rose to prominence for her controversial performance in "Blurred Lines", which featured her dancing topless. YouTube banned the explicit version of the video for violating its Community Guidelines due to its sexually explicit nature but reinstated it in July 2013.
The Guardian's Peter Robinson noted that "[Justin] Timberlake's "Tunnel Vision" clip was initially banned then reinstated by the service "because it was, apparently, art".]
When asked by Esquire about her thoughts on whether she thought the video was sexist, she replied that she did not think it was. In a separate interview, she said, "I think there’s different kinds of nudity, and there’s different kinds of sexiness, and obviously it’s hard to distinguish those things. I think that the video was tasteful, beautiful, and there’s nothing offensive about it". Additionally she said that she interpreted the video about "these ladies being silly and a little sarcastic".
