It seems the entire ladmag-reading world agrees that Emily Ratajkowski is the Next Big Thing–but how exactly will success manifest for the breakout star of the “Blurred Lines” video? Will she defy condescending chatter from fashion people* and wind up like Kate Upton, on the cover of every magazine? Or will she descend into obscurity after a failed acting career or a string of bad endorsement deals?
Hard to tell at this point, but people sure are obsessed with the dark-haired Brit. She’s doing her part by showing up to red carpet events in revealing dresses:
Ratajkowski was on hand for the grand opening of TAO Downtown in New York this week, looking every bit the bombshell in a black cutout dress. As if the window into her naked torso weren’t enough, the dress also features a dizzying thigh slit.
While we think she looks pretty great (her face is perfect for the faintly smoky makeup and unfussy hair), nothing bores us more than one note SEXY! dressing. Especially cutouts.
…Except maybe sparkly beige gowns.
*This is not to suggest Ratajkowski and Upton are remotely similar as models, just that the women in the modeling industry known as “sexy girls” can’t get no respect.
