She may be your favourite Victoria's Secret Angel, or just the newest female lead in the Transformers series, but one thing is sure, you have probably already heard of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She was notably featured in Vogue's March edition of "Today I am wearing..." showcasing her personnal style, a perfect mix of British edginess and Hollywood glamour. Now if you want to know how to get the look, here are a few tips.
Skinnies are a staple in any woman's wardrobe, including Rosie's. They show off her perfect curves and contribute to her off-duty effortless look. She wears them in a variety of textures and colours, but her favourites remain J Brand's skinny jeans, or her Les Chiffoniers leather leggings. Obviously, you don't have to splurge on these exact same brands. You can find skinny trousers in pretty much any high street shop, such as Topshop or New Look. Levi's Curve ID range is also a good place to look, if you want good quality, yet relatively inexpensive skinny jeans.
Whether she goes for a structured blazer, a studded biker jacket or an embellished cardigan, Rosie sure knows how to spice up any simple outfit. Don't worry if you can't afford Rosie's Burberry leather jacket or Isabel Marant blazer, not many of us can. Shops like River Island and Topshop offer a great range of good quality jackets for only a fraction of the price.
Despite being English, Rosie's skin is always the perfect shade of bronze. Her skin is flawless without ever looking caky, so stay away from heavy foundations and choose a light tinted moisturiser instead. Next, apply bronzer where the sun would naturally hit, that is all the high points of your face ; cheekbones, temples, forehead, bridge of the nose and chin. To keep this look as dewy as possible, opt for a cream bronzer like Chanel Soleil de Tan. Add a golden highlight to the top of your cheekbones and finish off the look by applying Nars Orgasm multiple to the apple of the cheeks for that gorgeous rosy glow that the model always seems to have.
Large floppy hats add a romantic twist to Rosie's bohemian outfits, whereas a wide-brimmed fedora gives her casual look a rock and roll edge. The secret is to choose the right shape for your face, but most importantly, to wear it with confidence. A good place to start looking would be H&M, which just came out with some gorgeous hats, as part of their autumn collection.
Victoria's Secret Angels are known for their long luscious waves, and Rosie is no exception. To achieve her sexy look, start off by applying your favourite heat-protectant spray then loosely curl the hair away from your face, using a large 1 1/2" curling iron. There is no need to use the clamp, instead just start from the roots, and twirl the hair around the iron. This will give it a softer look. Gently run your fingers through it to separate the curls, before finishing off with some light hold hairspray.
Red Carpet Ready
If Rosie's off-duty style is effortlessly chic, her red-carpet looks are fun, glamourous and sexy. Her secret? Keeping it fresh and simple. Try and remember this when getting ready for a night out. If you are going to go for a sequinned mini, or a sexy cut-out dress or any other statement outfit, keep the accessories to a minimum and opt for messy hair to avoid looking overdone.
Now, the only thing left to do is shop!
