Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is professionally hot, but her attempts to cross over into the acting realm have been tenuous. After all, she never really sold herself as an actress, just a model who — surprise! — happens to be both excruciatingly good-looking and decent enough at following directions, which was more than good enough for Michael Bay. Rosie’s next foray is into the design sphere with a lingerie collection to be distributed by British high street giant Marks & Spencer. Not-so-serendipitously, she already models for the brand’s Autograph intimates line, so her branch of it is simply a “natural extension” of Rosie’s relationship with the retailer. The collection, which she will be the face of, will be called Rosie for Autograph and consists of 33 pieces, including bras, panties, camisoles, and kimonos. The items will have a pink rose motif, which is only intuitive for someone called Rosie. A stroke of genius, I say. [NYMag.com]
Happy birthday, Rosie! The gorgeous English model turns 25 today, and she has plenty of reasons to celebrate. Rosie was a relative unknown until 2008, when she scored her big break by way of the opportunity of a lifetime: Burberry’s chief creative director, Christopher Bailey, chose the Victoria’s Secret catalogue model to replace Agyness Deyn in the British fashion house’s fall/winter ad campaign. It was all uphill from then on, with a British Vogue cover following shortly thereafter. Now Rosie is practically a household name, nearly as ubiquitous a model as her VS Angel counterparts Alessandra Ambrosio or Adriana Lima, and it shouldn’t take any more than a look at her to fathom what makes her a star (here’s a hint: it’s not ”Transformers”). Her intimidating beauty and leggy stature is offset by a quiet British modesty and sense of propriety, not to mention a standout dress sense. Rosie doesn’t do it all on her own, so let’s give credit where credit is due — Cher Coulter, the stylist also behind Kate Bosworth, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sienna Miller, to name a few, is the one responsible for Rosie’s elegant, casual, always impeccable look. Yeah, I want Cher to be my stylist, too! Check out my picks for Rosie’s ten best red carpet looks (disregarding the fact that this girl looks good in literally anything and everything) in the gallery above.
