It’s officially summer, so it’s only natural that Emily Ratajkowski graces the cover of GQ yet again. Ever since EmRata appeared in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, her stock has steadily soared, perhaps even matching fellow model Kate Upton‘s popularity. With a role in David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl this October, it’s only a matter of time before Ratajkowski becomes an international sex icon… if she wasn’t already considered one. Considering EmRata’s popularity on Ruby Hornet in the past, it’s only fitting that we spotlight her latest spread in GQ with these photos shot by Michael Thompson. Honestly, what makes a summer photo spread possess more of a “summer” vibe than a girl in a bikini covered in dirt and mud?
Check out GQ‘s latest photos and a behind the scenes video with EmRata below.
