The A-list celebrity, supermodel, actress, fashion icon, designer, influencer and now mom Emily Ratajkowski is turning 30 today, and we couldn’t be more excited. As she juggles astoundingly well between her professions, she never fails to remind us about her political positions, especially how she stands up for human rights and that we should all be feminists. Being an activist herself, both on social media but also participating in women’s marches, she goes against socially constructed taboos like embracing sexuality, and civil rights issues.
She’s made quite the fashion evolution from her 2013 video with Robin Thicke, Blurred Lines, which she admitted having ruined her life. Despite gaining huge popularity from the video, it also made her become the subject of discussion everywhere following her appearance, and she particularly detested how her position as a feminist was questioned rather than being appreciative of her approach to owning her sexuality.
She’s known to be the sex symbol of the decade, and with this look she exudes power and confidence whilst being totally chic.
Her style is very versatile, following the start of her modeling career in 2015 she quickly became one of the most desired models in the world by the biggest brands, walking the catwalks of Versace, Bottega Veneta, Dolce&Gabbana and Miu Miu, just to name a few.
She’s also the founder of her successful brand Inamorata, which means ‘lover’ in Italian: an explosion of 90’s styles and chic, wearable pieces. Not to be forgotten how she’s also a jewel designer, having designed her own engagement ring herself.
From a colorful Versace bliss, to beautiful, patterned dresses, there is nothing she can’t pull-off and her exuberant personality also reflects her eclectic, yet sophisticated style.
Emily cannot be simply referred to as an influencer or socialite: she is a truly contemporary woman, an icon of the time we’re living in, who’s able to reinvent herself throughout the years whilst still being true to herself. We all wish Emily the happiest birthday. Here are our favourite looks from the model, in honour of her 30th.
