For someone who seems to get photographed in a bikini constantly, it’s hard to imagine that Emily Ratajkowski only just now scored her first swimwear campaign! Australian brand Amore & Sorvete, which means “love and ice cream” in Portuguese, tapped the 25-year-old model for their latest collection.

“I’m completely bathing suit-obsessed and I love lurking on Instagram looking for the best bikinis,” Ratajkowski tells PeopleStyle of how she discovered Amore & Sorvete. “I had worn the line on Sports Illustrated swim shoot and decided to check them out.” Her favorite piece from the line is the Hula Hula bikini (above). “The Brazilian-cut bottoms are so flattering on the butt,” she says. “And the little bit of the 80’s higher cut sides make your legs look long.”

“The brand looks and feels more expensive than your average suits,” she says. “The cuts are sexy and flattering, but they also hold onto your body in a really secure, comfortable way. You’ll never find yourself awkwardly adjusting your suit when you’re trying to enjoy a nice day at the beach.” Pieces from the collection run from $150 to $180.

Though Ratajkowski’s no stranger to sexy photo shoots, there is a notable difference between shooting for a brand and shooting an editorial. Even though SI photographer, Derek Katella, shot the campaign, “The main difference would be that with Amore & Sorvete we were shooting locally in L.A. at a very chill house and pool,” she says. “With SI, you travel far and wide to get to a beach and you never know what kind of elements will come into play — bugs, rain, you name it!”
