She literally worked with Brad Pitt when she was 12
Let’s not lie, Ella Thomas was a star from the moment she walked into the Love Island villa. Confidence, model walk, unreal wardrobe – she and Tyrique energize the 90s R&B couple and we’re all for it. And, tbh, we shouldn’t be surprised, because Ella had some serious boujee life before she even stepped into the villa.
Yup, flying to Miami, music video cameos, modeling awards, and links to Brad Pitt are just a few of her contacts with the showbiz world before venturing into reality TV. So, in case you’re curious as to why Ella exudes such celeb energy, here’s a deep dive into her glamorous pre-Love Island villa life:
Luxury travel around the world
Like most model stroke influencers, Ella is seriously outdoorsy and has traveled all over the world. Mykonos, Miami, Palm Springs, Amsterdam, Dubai – the list of locations she has posted on her Instagram is actually too long to mention. And she doesn’t slurp it up in AirBnBs, either. Beach clubs, big yachts, villas, luxury hotels – you know the drill – she eats sushi and cruises around on jet skis. Kardashian coded!
High profile music videos
For Love Island, Ella was featured in a music video by Headie One and Burna Boy for their song Siberia, where she rode a ski lift in a fur coat, which seems like a good way to spend eight hours for days at work. . In her pre-villa interview, Ella said this was her “claim to fame,” but there’s a lot more to unpack.
Ella isn’t just an amateur model with a few Instagram brand deals. In October 2022, she won Female Model of the Year at the Scottish Media Awards, effectively making her the Bella Hadid of Glasgow. She has posted tons of portfolio photos with different photographers on her Insta and already has thousands of fans.
Before she was even a teenager, Ella was already starring in Hollywood movies. She was actually cast as an extra in the highest-grossing zombie movie of all time: World War Z. “I was 12 years old when I filmed it and met Brad Pitt, which was cool,” she said, which is actually the biggest under-exaggeration all time.
Wardrobe full of designer pieces
Prada, Balenciaga, Dior, Gucci—Ellas has a collection of designer handbags and sunglasses to rival the Kardashians. And this was before she was even fully famous. Something tells us she’s going to be using some serious labels once she’s back in the outside world.
Her whole lifestyle just seems incredibly boujee
Ella is only 23, but she already seems to be living her absolute best life. Just scrolling through her Instagram highlights, they’re all photo shoots, sports cars, fashion weeks, jumping flights, Mayfair meals, and hanging out with her adorable designer dog. It gives A-lister energy. And it will only get more intense.
