By now you’ve seen her everywhere, but in June of 2012, we only knew Emily Ratajkowski as Tasha from iCarly. Looking back, we can all thank the talented lenswork of photographer Jonathan Leder for introducing EMRATA and her generous assets to the world. Here for the first time, we share exclusive outtakes from Leder’s photo shoot for Darius Magazine in June 2012.
