Even though she's just 21 years old, Emily Ratajkowski could write a book about how to effortlessly transform yourself from an anonymous beauty into a budding supermodel. The London-born Ratajkowski has gone from an unknown face in ads for Forever 21 and Nordstrom to appearing in major magazines and music videos.

Though she was raised in Encinitas, Calif., Ratajkowski spent a great deal of time overseas in Ireland and Spain while growing up. She studied fine art at UCLA, but left the program after one year to concentrate on modeling. Since then, Ratajkowski has been featured in a hot Carl's Jr. commercial with Sara Jean Underwood and starred in music videos for Robin Thicke and Maroon 5. Ratajkowski was the girl that captured the attention of Adam Levine in the just-released video for the band's song 'Love Somebody.' Watch the video of the Carl's Jr. commercial and the Maroon 5 song below:
