Emily Ratajkowski: Style Secrets

Last week uber-babe Emily Ratajkowski hosted our Primark x Refinery29 USA launch dinner in New York City, which you can read all about here. When she wasn't posing for pictures or mingling with our celeb and blogger guests, we managed to grab five minutes with the exotic beauty to grill her on her style secrets and share our Primark excitement!

Tell us about the Primark piece you’re wearing tonight--what do you love about it?

I'm wearing the classic pencil skirt ($11!), that’s velvety and has a split up one leg. I love it because it's just a classic piece, you can wear it to work or wear it how I’m wearing it: to a cocktail party! It's very comfortable, very chic and simple - which I like.


How would you describe your personal style?

"French girl-wannabe."


Which fall piece can you guarantee will always be in your wardrobe?

Over-the-knee boots I think are always good; they can be super chic and you can be pretty minimal with everything else you’re wearing.


Who, and what, inspires the way you dress?

It’s a combination of things: I think it’s images I see on Tumblr; it's girls I see on the street. I love some 1960s icons like Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, Bianca Jagger...


With the release of your new EDM-based film, "We Are Your Friends"–what song are you currently addicted to?

Ooh, I love Fetty Wap's '679'. I like that song.


We hear you've actually been a Penneys (the Irish name for Primark) fan for years and actually spend a lot of vacation time in Ireland?

Yeah, my parents spend half their time in West Cork and Bantree, so I go there every year!
