Last year, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sashayed from the runway to the silver screen, starring in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” The movie raked in $1.1 billion at the box office, making it the fourth-highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide. And though she had never acted before, Huntington-Whiteley proved that she could look pretty good while saving the world from invading robot aliens.
Critics may have protested Michael Bay’s casting of a model with zero acting experience, but no one can claim Huntington-Whiteley doesn’t know lingerie. In just a matter of years, the 25-year-old has gone from dressing down into lines from Monsoon and Agent Provocateur to strutting out before the world at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Not that Huntington-Whiteley’s planning on unveiling any four-foot angel wings of her own. Her line, Rosie for Autograph— the M&S range that’s employed Rosie as its face for the last two years — will be “deco-inspired” and is not as outlandish as the brand that launched her to fame. When it comes out, fans will be able to purchase “silk lingerie sets, camisoles and French knicker sets, and kimono style robes.
