Addison Rae is a social media star, most famous for being seriously popular on TikTok (she currently has 88.7m followers and is the fourth most-followed person – yep, let that sink in for a second). Born in Louisiana, Addison began dancing competitively at the age of six. For a short while she studied Sports Broadcasting at university, but she dropped out when her TikTok account took off, and eventually made the decision to move to Los Angeles.

Addison Rae is not currently single, in fact, she is in a relationship with 22-year-old record producer Omer Fedi. The pair have been dating since August 2021 when they went Instagram official.

In October 2021, Addison celebrated her 21st birthday with an idyllic getaway in Hawaii and her new beau came along for the ride. The couple honoured the social media star's life milestone by...making TikToks, obvs. 

Fast forward to April 2022, Addison and Omer rocked the red carpet together at the Grammy Awards, their joint appearance underpinned by Omer's whopping three award nominations. Going heavy on the PDA, they also ramped up the style stakes, with Addison donning a clinging slip dress by Nili Lotan and Omer opting for a distressed black biker coat. 

From risque Met Gala afterparty snaps to adorable street style moments, the pair certainly keep busy, and they seem to have a super tight bond.

Addison Rae's street style swings towards a certain 'loosely sporty cool-girl' vibe, with the star typically opting for flattering crop tops, oversized graphic T-shirts, printed loungewear and the occasional belted blazer dress.

In 2020, it was revealed that Addison was TikTok's highest earning star and her success on the platform has meant that she has worked commercially with Reebok, Hollister and American Eagle.

"I love a sheer mesh, and fishnets layered under a dress. It feels sexy without being too much. I’m also wearing a lot of tighter-fitting clothes at the moment as I feel like they hold me in and make me feel secure. And I’m obsessed with slip dresses: they’re so timeless and classy," Addison told Elle earlier this year.

And when it comes to her personal style icons, she adores Hollywood royalty Angelina Jolie. "I love her so much, everything she does – if I met her in real life I just wouldn't know what to say. She’s so enticing and mysterious. Monica Bellucci has also been a really big style influence for me recently. I love her classic looks: classy, but a little bit edgy. And Kate Moss, obviously, even though our body types are a little different."

The 22-year-old has been busy making stylish appearances at a number of prestigious red carpet events - most memorably the 11th Annual LACMA Art + Film Gala that took place in Los Angeles a couple of months ago. Addison turned heads in the most striking navel-deep plunge gown, a vintage couture piece by Jean Louis de Scherrer. Teaming her dress with a black beaded pendant, she wore her hair in a sleek middle parting and looked the picture of sultry glamour.
