Emily Ratajkowski's claim to fame is her appearance in the controversial "Blurred Lines" music video. The video was hot enough to be deemed "too sexy for YouTube," and was banned from being streamed on the website. Topless in both the "Blurred Lines" video and a subsequent Terry Richardson photo shoot, Ratajkowski seems to be known most for wearing the least. Besides that video, however, the 22 year old model/actress has been seen actually wearing clothing, and has even landed a role in the "Entourage" movie. Though you may prefer her infamous "Blurred Lines" nudity, here, we list glorious moments when Emily Ratajkowski was fully dressed.

Bringing Sexy Back 


Ratajkowski wore a backless black gown with a ruched waist to the 22nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation's Oscar Viewing Party on March 2, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. Though people may have been mesmerized by her front in the "Blurred Lines" video, her backside is far more seductive. The model's Olima gown was perfectly paired with cobalt Jennifer Meyer earrings. Her hair was styled by Anh Co Tran.

A different kind of nudity


Even before she danced alongside Robin Thicke, Em Ra was bearing it all. This natural beauty looks stunning in minimal makeup and a casual long-sleeved tee. A messy yoga up-do frames her face, which is lightly painted with natural makeup. To get Ratajkowski's natural look, use a light BB Cream, such as Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer. Dust on a mineral blush, and finish with eyeshadow from the classic Naked Palette

Full coverage 

S Moda purposefully covered Ratajkowski in the shoot for their March 1 cover story. The Conde Nast/El Pais publication dressed Ratajkowski in the finest apparel, including Hermes and Proenza Schouler. In this picture, stylists Irene San Segundo and Chabela Garcia put the model in a lace top by Blumarine and a La Perla bra. The entire shoot was photographed by Tetsu Kubota.

Crops and slits 

While the S Moda shoot was refreshing, we don't always need this gorgeous gal to be so covered. Emily channeled her inner Angelina Jolie on the red carpet for a "Kick-Ass 2" event at Comic-Con 2013. The model/actress showed a little leg with a side slit skirt by Nicholas. Emily's matching cutout crop top was also featured in the Nicholas Fall 2013 collection.

Ratajkowski looked  less like a bikini model  and more like a street style star in Paris on June 28, 2013. On her way to the Menswear Spring/Summer 2014 shows of Paris Fashion Week, she sported high-fashion brands Chloe, Ma+, Rick Owens, and Wendy Nichol. 

In a loosely-structured blazer, pleated genie pants and hip-baring tee, is seems as though Em Ra is just a beautiful New York fashionista, casually walking to her next design class when she happened to be stopped by a photographer from Vogue.
