Emma Chamberlain is swiftly becoming one of the biggest IT girls around—from her famous Met Gala interviews (like this iconic moment with Madelyn Cline and Aubrey Plaza) to the Architectural Digest tour of her new aesthetic pad and of course her relationship with Role Model. So, what better time to take a deep dive into her life? From her coffee company to why Emma rose to stardom in the first place—here’s all the essential info about her!

If you’re an avid TikTok or Instagram scroller, you will have no doubt spotted a certain wolf-cut repping, 90s-style fashionista appearing more and more on your feed. If not, then you'll definitely recognize her from that iconic Met Gala 2022 interview with Jack Harlow—where he told her he loved her and she had, very understandably, an existential crisis—or even better the Met Gala reunion they had at the 2023 event.

She's also done magazine covers (one that included a candid look into her relationship), walked the Venice Film Festival red carpet and even sat front and center at both Copenhagen and Paris Fashion Week. Not to mention her popular podcast, Anything Goes becoming a Spotify exclusive. So basically, it's all coming up aces for Emma lately!

And while Emma Chamberlain's sunglasses and Emma's 'summer uniform' and her outfits are commonplace on Pinterest and Instagram these days, she's actually been a major name on the internet for some time, as one of YouTube's OG stars. 

So for any new Emma stans out there, here's how the model/influencer and coffee mogul began her rise to fame—plus everything we know about her beau, net worth and dreamy home!

Why is Emma Chamberlain famous?

Emma Chamberlain rose to fame with her YouTube and Instagram content—winning the People's Choice Award for ‘Favorite Social Media Star’ in 2020 and also featuring in Forbes' social media ‘30 under 30’ list. 

She began her channel six years ago (in 2017) and has now accumulated over 11 million subscribers, posting everything from outfit compilations to day-in-the-life and travel vlogs. 

Her videos are adored for their candor and aesthetics—from Emma talking you through how she makes her morning coffee to watching her walk around New York City in search of the thrift shop. It’s hard to explain, but Emma can make anything look cool—even cooking soup in her PJs.

These days, she tends to upload more travel content and has appeared in YouTube videos for the likes of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar—and we'll get to that AD house tour later.

Since launching her YouTube channel, Emma has wracked up 16.1 million Instagram followers, started a Coffee Company called ‘Chamberlain Coffee’ and become a brand ambassador for the likes of Levi and Dickies. Oh, did we already mention that she has a podcast?

Emma Chamberlain's podcast

If Emma’s vlogs aren’t enough for you, she also has a podcast called ‘Anything Goes’, where she talks about everything—from girl friendships to her own struggles with anxiety and depression.

As with everything Emma does, you can expect real, candid honesty—which is why likely why she’s so popular. She also recently announced that her podcast is now a Spotify exclusive and will soon be available in video format. Her pod has a new set and everything—and much like her home, it's the most aesthetic thing we've ever seen.

Emma Chamberlain's net worth

Considering all her side hustles and fashion icon status, of course, her net worth is a question we’re all dying to know—especially after seeing her incredible home (yes we’ll get to that later).

Lad Bible reports that Emma's net worth is an eye-watering $12 million, which—at the age of just 21 years old—is damn impressive.

Emma Chamberlain's age

As mentioned, Emma is 21 and started her Youtube channel around the age of 15/16.

To really put her success into perspective and make you feel very old—she was interviewing Timothée Chalamet, Kris Jenner, Shawn Mendes and of course, Jack Harlow on the Met Gala red carpet at just 20 years old!

Emma Chamberlain's tattoos

Emma surprised fans earlier this year by debuting a number of adorable tiny micro tattoos—eight to be exact (which she got done all in one sitting) and much like Hailey Bieber's tattoos and Kendall Jenner's tattoos, have swiftly become our main source of tiny tat inspo! 

Emma's inks include a squirrel, two paintbrushes, a vintage car, a stamp with a pine tree on it, a stuffed rabbit toy, a lighthouse, the number 11 and a little girl holding a head. 

Who is Emma Chamberlain's boyfriend?

Emma is dating 24-year-old singer Tucker Pillsbury aka Role Model—with the pair making their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Fans are also convinced that Role Model's song NeverLetYouGo is about Emma—which is low-key confirmed since she’s in the music video…

As of yet, he’s not appeared in one of her vlogs but keep your eyes peeled, it could happen! And that being said, he has made a few cameos on her Instagram feed and Stories.

While they are pretty private with their relationship, Emma has previously said on her podcast that being, ‘best friends with your significant other is the best f****** thing ever. ‘ N’aww!

Emma Chamberlain's house tour

If you’ve seen Emma on TikTok lately, it’s likely been a clip from her Architectural Digest house tour which went viral for being basically the coolest house ever.

Her LA home boasts a dreamy green and marble kitchen, a pool and loads of artwork painted by her dad—Michael Chamberlain.

Watch the tour for yourself…
