Emily Ratajkowski: "Velvet Swim"

Model/actress Emily Ratajkowski ("Gone Girl"), whose recent 'essay collection' "My Body", published by Metropolitan Books November 2021, includes a "...self-aware study of the exploitation of women's bodies" poses for her own fashion brand "Inamorata", introducing the  'Velvet Swim' collection, photographed by Amber Asaly: 

Ratajkowski's exposure to the female figure in photography, including works by Helmut Newton and Herb Ritts, influenced her to appear in "The "Blurred Lines" music video with Robin Thicke. This attracted the attention of actor Ben Affleck, who cast her to play his mistress in director David Fincher's 2014 adaptation of the novel "Gone Girl". 

This was followed by an appearance with Taylor Kitsch in the "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" live-action trailer, a co-starring role in the 2015 feature "Entourage", a role in the 2015 miniseries "The Spoils Before Dying", a leading role in the feature "We Are Your Friends" (2015) and a Buick 'Super Bowl' TV spot (2016).

Ratajkowski then appeared in the Russian-language music video "Inseparable", followed by roles in the features "We Are Your Friends", and "In Darkness". 

She then appeared in an episode of the Netflix series "Easy" (2016), cast as a series regular in the NBC pilot "Bright Futures" (2018), played in the comedy feature "I Feel Pretty", the feature "Cruise" and as the female lead in "Welcome Home".
