Emily Ratajkowski (the ‘j’ is silent) | 22 | Encinitas, Calif.

I was born in London and we moved back to the States when I was four or five.  Both my parents are hippies, intellectuals—my mom’s an English professor [at UCLA] and my dad’s a painter—and they had me when they were older, so they just decided, this baby’s going to come with us wherever we go.  They took me along for the ride, and to Europe a lot.  It was great.

Yall had a lot of sneak pics of her on instagram... if she's not in the mag a bunch then you will have totally failed us...

I'm sure that amazing photo of Emily was taken in my infinity pool at Caille Blanc Villa in St. Lucia:  www.stluciaheaven.com

This is probably the easiest choice that SI has ever made.

She's the hottest girl ever. doesn't matter how much I've seen of her, I have to see more.


She doesn't have to tease; she's the real deal.

Pointless. There are loads of incredible nudes out there.

If you google "blurred lines unrated", you can see her dance topless.  Even my wife said "damn"

@kidgohanson  No they're going to put Kate Upton on the cover again. Heaven forbid we have a model with an actual hip to waist ratio, aka real curves. Upton's known as the "plus sized model" and SI wouldn't get as much "body positive" PR if they put a skinny (yet actually much more curvy) model on the cover....

@Badabad  You're spot on there. She can do anything in any media and is still riveting. This gig will just make that even more obvious....SI had to have her, otherwise they would be viewed as being out of touch with who is, er, hot.

@jjazznola  Who cares? She is still the hottest model they've had in years. On top of that she's legit smart and interesting. Put her in everything, all the time, naked or not naked.
