Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Violet Grey

| April 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

Rosie is part of a generation of models, including peers Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, who aren’t just gorgeous, globe-trotting women but also incredibly ambitious. “Being a model, being an actress – it’s not decided by you. You’re chosen. You’re cast, and that’s fantastic, of course,” says Rosie. “There has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I’d like to get myself into a position where I’m starting something on my own. That’s my focus this year.” Off to an impeccable start, she is in the upcoming post-apocalyptic flick Mad Max and just debuted a new collection of her lingerie line, Rosie for Autograph, as well as her recently launched fragrance by the same name. This, in addition to her various campaigns and cover shoots, of course.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on her very first nude photoshoot:
“I was in London and it was a different time. I honestly think I was a lot more free when I was younger; Kate Moss was my favorite supermodel and she always took her clothes off for anything. It was like, ‘Well if it’s good enough for Kate…’”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the business of being “Rosie”:
“I believe who you surround yourself is a reflection of yourself. There’s a quote I have always liked by Will Rogers: ‘It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute’”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on her career ambitions:
“Being a model, being an actress—it’s not decided by you. You’re chosen. You’re cast, and that’s fantastic, of course. There is always a sense of pride when you make the cut, but there has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I’d like to get myself into a position where I’m starting something on my own. That’s my focus for this year.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on eating right to keep in shape:
“I don’t want to be that miserable girl pushing a salad around my plate…At home; I eat clean, organic, and simple. And when I go out with friends, I enjoy myself…I couldn’t live life just restrictive all the time. It’s just no fun to me. That’s not a way to live. It’s all balance.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley  on her daytime makeup look:
“…I don’t wear a ton of it, but I will always have a little foundation on, I’m a big fan of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It’s a really natural foundation, so it just gives me a simple coverage. Then I put on Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Color in Rosebud and a little bit of YSL Babydoll Mascara in Wheedler Brown and a little bit of Eve Lom Kiss Mix and that suits me for the day, really.”
