Fashion girls know Emily Ratajkowski as the stylish model who exudes confidence no matter what she wears, including her latest cover look. The 25-year-old fronts the March issue of InStyle—the first issue its new editor in chief, Laura Brown, worked on from beginning to end—in a casual T-shirt designed by Virgil Abloh for Off-White and a pair of vintage wash Re/Done jeans. Her laid-back look is effortlessly gorgeous, and the interview reveals a lot we didn't know about her.
Ratajkowski opens up about everything from her sheltered upbringing to how she's navigating her career as a model and actress and expressing herself on social media. After making a name for herself in modeling and crossing over into acting with her role in the film Gone Girl, Ratajkowski didn't think she had locked down a serious career. "At the time I thought, 'I'm going to just make a bunch of money and then go back to school.' To be honest, I hadn't figured out that I had a real career on my hands," she tells the magazine.
Little did she know her career was just getting started. "So I was like, 'OK, this person wants me to do this? Cool.' And then all of a sudden I realized that these projects are just not me. That's when I shifted toward more meaningful things." With 10.9 million Instagram followers (and counting) and multiple fashion campaigns under her belt, whether it's modeling or acting, we have a feeling EmRata's career is only just beginning to blossom.
