Amber Rose is a model and business woman who gained exposure after appearing in Young Jeezy’s ‘Put On’ video, and later in an advertisement for Louis Vuitton, which featured Kanye West’s sneaker line. As a model, she walked the runway at New York Fashion Week for ‘Celestino’, and she continued to make various cameos in music videos by top recordings artists before being signed by Ford Models, who represented her from 2009 – 2010. Amber entered a relationship with Kanye that lasted from 2008 – 2010, and this greatly elevated her career status as a media personality. During this period, she branched out as a business woman to release her own eyewear line, and Amber consolidated this venture by releasing her own clothing line in 2012. She has also been active as an author with the release of her first book called ‘How To Be a Bad Bitch’, which was published by Simon & Schuster, and in 2016 Rose released an emoji app called MuvaMoji, which shot to No.1 on the App store and earned her a cool $4 million. Amber now has her very own talk show on VH1, and elevated her media personality to new heights when she appeared in ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in 2016, where she finished in 9th place. Rose has also briefly forayed into music, as well as gaining a presence as a television personality with various guest appearances on talk shows, gameshows and others.
Amber Rose was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and at the age of 15 she started stripping under the pseudonym ‘Paris’ to start providing money for her family.
Amber is recognized for her trademark shaved head, and she launched a ‘SlutWalk’ in honor of women who have been judged and demeaned for their sexual behavior, which was promoted considerably by a viral video she released in collaboration with Funny or Die.
Amber was in a well-documented relationship with Kanye West, but later married Wiz Khalifa, who she was with from 2011 until they split up in 2015.
