Emily Ratajkowski

Followers: 15 million

You may recognise Emily from TV and the big screen after bagging roles in Entourage and Ben Affleck’s movie Gone Girl. A huge step away from her iCarly Nickelodeon days, Emily is mostly known for her hot-to-trot bikini bod. Her recent catwalk appearance walking Bottega Venetta’s show at Milan fashion week means the only way is up for this 26 year old beauty. Having campaigns for DKNY Fall ’17 and 15 million Instagram followers under your belt certainly helps.

Belgian bikini model Rose Bertram is best known for her appearances in Sports Illustrated and GQ Magazine. Her first big break was with famed fashion photographer Juergen Teller for speaker brand Jambox. This got the Belgian beauty noticed and from there she worked with L’Oreal, Primark and H&M amongst many other big brand names. “I remember when I started people always told me that it would never work out. They told me that I’d never get to do big jobs because I wasn’t tall enough, didn’t have a very skinny high-fashion body type. You can tell fashion is changing, now it’s all about who you are.” Go get ‘em, girl.

With Mexican and French being inclusive of her heritage, Sophia Miacova is of unique beauty. First stepping onto the fame scene as a Vine phenomenon and known for her humour Sophia’s bikini models body is, let’s face it, out of this world. Being a huge lover of animals, after moving to LA Sophia became vegan and lives by Ghandi’s quote ‘the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.’ Is she an angel or what?
