From her latest body of work, Emily Ratajkowski isn't worried about being typecast as "that sexy model who went topless in that 'Blurred Lines' video." That's lucky for GQ, who cast the Cali stunner for its July cover shoot. The event took place in Kona, Hawaii—offering ample opportunity for Ratajkowski to roll around, all oiled up, on a black sand beach.

Giving all men false hope, Ratajkowski reveals in the accompanying article that she's newly single. "Generally, I just think there is a real lacking in men knowing how to hit on women," she says. "I have this whole running joke with someone: What Would Denzel Do? Like, you don't think about how many days you should wait to call the girl—you just do it when you want. Fuckin' Denzel. You do what you want, you know what you want."
