PROFILE - 10 Times Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Stole Our Hearts
2018 is going to be a big year for British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – first launching her incredible beauty brand, Rose Inc, to replicate that famous glow, and then creating her own beauty website with tips and tricks of the trade. Does this ladyboss ever stop?
Rosie’s site, Rose Inc, is destined to be the number one stop for all things makeup! From tutorials, to reviews, this site will be run by the model/actress herself, alongside many experts from the industry. You can even get tips from fellow beauty babes like Kate Bosworth and Poppy Delevingne – perfect, right?
Picking out 10 favorite looks of Rosie’s seemed impossible because Rosie can pull off any outfit. She gets the balance just right – she knows when to keep it simple, but also can pull a hat trick and wear something completely unexpected. Here are SIR’s top 10 Rosie looks over the years.
1. The Rainbow Dress
Rosie surprised us with her bold and bright style at her event with Attico and FWRD in April. It wasn’t a look we necessarily expected from her, but at the same time, it was meant to be. The 80s’ inspired look revolved around a gorgeous wrap-round rainbow dress with slinky yet billowing sleeves, teamed with daring purple and yellow heels that showed off that gorgeous tan. The fit of the dress made it a little more laid-back but the sparkles vamped it up for the big event. She just made it work.
2. Summer Inspiration
If you are looking for inspiration this summer, then look no further! Rosie has got the perfect look for your next vacay, or even just for the next heatwave. This stunning leaf-print maxi dress with a high split is perfect for layering over a bikini, or even with some cute lacey underwear. Last but not least, the finishing detail is to die for – the Gucci bumbag. It just edges up the look and turns it from boho to high-end in a flash.
3. Playing With Leopard Print
One of Rosie’s favorite brands of all time is Yves Saint Laurent, so it’s no surprise that a YSL outfit had to appear somewhere in this list! What seems like a basic black outfit has been roughened up and made a little more “rock” with this showstopper of a coat. Though this outfit is from December 2017, we can officially say that Rosie is a trend-setter, as leopard print is back this fall/winter 18. Wearing a monochrome outfit with an animal print coat is the simplest yet most sophisticated way of wearing the print. Plus, she has added texture with these curve-clinging leather pants. We love!
4. Keeping It Simple
One of the many reasons we love Rosie is because, though her wardrobe is serious #goals, she is also ultra relatable. She doesn’t swan around 24/7 in over the top gowns and crazy prints, and you can often see her rock off duty style with a basic tee and jeans. Mom jeans add a sporty, laid-back vibe to her often glamorous style, and the earrings and nude heels make the outfit a little more extra. #StreetStyleGoals!
5. The Oscar Party Gown
Rosie showed that you can be a badass mom to be when she rode up to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a stunning silver dress, that hugged every curve, including that beautiful bump of hers. The shoulder-detailing was giving us Greek goddess vibes, and she was even more glamorous than her surroundings. The thigh-high split gave the gown beautiful movement too.
6. Underwear As Outerwear
Since 2016, rocking underwear as outerwear has been a huge trend that has taken the catwalk by storm. Rosie was one of the first to dip her toe into the daring trend pool, and she worked it in her own way. Still respecting her sporty yet sophisticated style, she teamed a detailed lace bustier with black combat-style pants and statement jewelry to make the outfit all the more fabulous. This is amazing inspiration for your next party – instead of rocking up in a dress, how about wearing lingerie sports-luxe style?
7. That Met Gown
When the Met Gala announced the theme for 2018 would be Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, we were beyond excited – but nothing could prepare us for the jaw-dropping gowns that were in store for us. Rosie made every best dressed list thanks to her angelic Ralph Lauren gown, basically because it ticked every single box – sexy, sophisticated and dramatic, but again, it totally respected her personal style. Her makeup was simple, with a radiant glow, letting her dress and headdress do the talking. Perfection!
8. Meaning Business
We love a smart yet edgy look from Rosie, and we think this one is perfect for a meeting where you want to dress to impress, or just on an everyday basis. A blazer and jeans may seem somewhat banal, but with a statement belt, knee-high boots, and your favorite bag, is an instantly winning combo! Having her hair slicked back into a super-sleek pony makes it all the more elegant, and the dramatic sunglasses just elevate the whole outfit. What’s not to love?
9. Living Dangerously
If there is one thing we could learn from Rosie, it’s how she creates timeless looks with more trend-driven pieces. What could have been a hot mess has been transformed into something edgy, playful yet chic and sophisticated. We didn’t know we had to have red leather pants before seeing Rosie wear them! Plus, she is wearing them with pieces we can regularly see her with on Instagram, such as her burgundy aviator jacket and one of her many Fendi bags – proving that celebrities recycle too.
10. Thigh High
Rosie looks unreal in this amazing YSL outfit! The crazily high boots somehow manage to elongate her model proportions and make her legs look even longer – however that’s possible. As her boots are rather statement and bold, she has kept it simple up top with a matching tan aviator jacket, and a black and white blouse, balancing out sexiness and sophistication. We are so saving this look to our Pinterest board.Now you have seen just 10 of SIR’s favorite Rosie fashion moments, how about yours? What is the outfit she’s worn that you have loved the most?
