On a recent Thursday, the radiant Emily Ratajkowski was seen effortlessly flaunting her signature curves in the plush first-class seats of a flight leaving New York. The destination remains a mystery, but the 32-year-old sensation caught her fans off guard with a series of unique selfies where she sported glasses. With a following of over 41 million on social media platforms, Emily has been the face of Versace Eyewear through LensCrafters for the past year. In the captured moments, she seemed to embrace a natural look, choosing only to enhance her lips with some gloss. The pictures didn’t feature her toddler son, Sylvester Apollo Bear, who she co-parents with her ex, Sebastian Bear-McClard, an acclaimed producer she separated from last year following allegations of unfaithfulness.
While jet-setting, Emily made waves on her podcast, High Low with EmRata, by unveiling her unexpected dating “deal-breaker”: men flaunting exposed ankles. To Emily, even the most handsome gentleman showcasing a bare ankle could instantly turn her off. She amusingly recalled an occasion where a date’s choice to bare his ankles led her to never seeing him again. Over the past year, she has been linked with notable figures including Pete Davidson and Justin Theroux. Further adding to her repertoire, she’s in the running for the Listener’s Choice award at the forthcoming 2nd Annual Signal Listener’s Choice Awards.
Beyond her podcast, the model-turned-entrepreneur also helms her swimwear brand Inamorata, co-founded with close friend Kat Mendenhall. Emily’s breakthrough moment was back in 2013, courtesy of her appearance in the music video for Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams’ hit, Blurred Lines.
Having a staggering 41.3M followers, Emily’s recent collaboration with LensCrafters to endorse Versace Eyewear has been quite the talking point.
During her podcast, the Inamorata chief opened up about dating faux pas she humorously termed as “icks”. For Emily, the sight of men’s revealed ankles is particularly off-putting, even suggesting a date’s exposed ankle led to their last meeting.
In the realm of romance, the past year has seen Emily’s name linked to various celebrities, such as DJ Orazio Rispo and artist Jack Greer, among others.
In the podcast arena, High Low faces stiff competition, going up against popular ones like Sheananigans by Scheana Shay and J.ill the Podcast by Jill Scott.
