13 Throwback Photos of EmRata that Prove She Hasn’t Changed One Bit

Emily Ratajkowski has been known to slay the Instagram game (she even dominated our Golden Globes elevator series, too). Her nearly 11 million followers can attest to the model/actress/activist’s unmistakable brand of beauty and confidence, but we can’t get over her knack for posting the greatest TBTs.

“I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t heard of her. But it took one minute of Internet investigation to realize, she has 11 million Twitter followers…like, what?”–Josh Hopkins

“She can’t even walk down the streets in New York without people screaming her name. I hope she’ll have the same experience here, that America will embrace her the way the rest of the world has. Someone said that Priyanka Chopra could be America’s sweetheart. I was like, ‘Yes. Priyanka Chopra can be America’s sweetheart.’”–Aunjanue Ellis

“It’s kind of insane! I don’t really realize it that much when I post photos [because I have my notifications turned off]. I want everyone to look at my feed and be able to tell a lot about me. It’s really what my life is: It’s colorful and I like to have fun and travel. It’s only me that posts on Instagram—I don’t have anyone who posts for me—and it’s cool for fans to get to know me outside of the show and outside of things that I do professionally. That’s why I love Instagram and Snapchat.” — Shay Mitchell on hitting 11 million followers on Instagram
