Hvorfor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley er den smukkeste dame på lufthavnen

Da Rosie Huntington-Whiteley var en modeobsaget 15-årig bor i sin landlige hjemby Devon, England, også kaldet “midt i himlen”, hun kaldte sig rundt i London på udkig efter nogen, anyone in the industry giving her an internship as part of a studieprogram på skolen. A little modeling agency in Soho said yes, and she spent a week at her offices emptying ashtrays and made photocopies. Og selvom hun ikke var helt sikker på hvad hun ville gøre endnu – design, ja; styling, maybe – did not even happen to her that she had what it takes to make a career in front of the camera. 

“I can remember the models that went in, and they were like goddesses to me,” says Huntington-Whiteley, now 29, and is based in Los Angeles. “They were so stylish and elegant with their beautiful skin and blasé attitude. I just remember to be like: ‘Oh my God, these girls are like swans.’ ” 

Det var ikke, at Huntington-Whiteley var uinteressant (selvom hun hævder sin retfærdige andel af akutte fase lidelser: et lag af babyfedt, plet hud og overplukket øjenbryn); It was simply a matter of how she was raised. “I can not remember people who say,” You are so beautiful, “or” You are beautiful, “she says about her childhood.” You were praised for good grades or winning the race. At være opmærksom på hvordan du ser, blev aldri opmuntret. Jeg føler mig heldig for det. “

Man could argue for, at this basis – a sense of self-esteem and trust derives from acts of artworks – is crucial to her persistent appeal in a company that does not always go so deeply. Fordi selv når hun kigger tilbage på dig fra glatte magasinomslag eller højt profilerede annoncekampagner (Burberry og Versace for at nævne) eller gå på Balmain-banen i en glitrende minidress, er der noget iboende relatable, ligesom selv om denne blonde bomuldshalv med pillowy lips . Det er en følelse af at hun er en af ​​pigerne og frem for alt rart. “I like to keep things real,” she says. “I stræber decided not about my house in underwear every night with four sets of eyelashes.” 

Huntington-Whiteley har fundet en god måde at parlay denne tiltalende glamour til en voksende forretning. Ud over modeling – og vises i blockbusters som Transformatorer: Mørke af månen og Mad Max: Fury Road-Den tjener som den globale kvinders ambassadør for Ugg og har en fireårig linje, kaldet Rosie for Autograph, med U.K.-massespecialisten Marks & Spencer, der omfatter alt fra undertøj til loungewear til kosmetik. And this month, I’m publishing a 17-piece capsule collection, which she designed in collaboration with Cali’s cool girl-label Paige, which she has fronted for years and counts. 

 

“When I look to partner with someone, I ask,” Can I like this brand? “Have I worn it?” Do I use it? “” She says. “There must be authenticity for me.” Here’s a story: Before Huntington- Whiteley became involved with Paige, she was a fan. She had used the company’s jeans for years, when one day while shopping in London, a woman approached her. It was Paige Adams-Geller, just as blonde, just stately founder but just before they had started a conversation, they realized that they were completely hilariously dressed almost identical in Paige jeans and the same Balenciaga leather jacket. “It was one of the incredible øjeblikke! “Siger Huntington-Whiteley.

“Paige and I have become very close friends and collaborators in recent years,” she adds. “Hun er en kvinde i erhvervslivet, der er glad for at dele og har taget mig under sin fløj i mange måder.” Together, the duo has created a portable line based on elements from Huntington-Whiteleys own closet. Tænk det perfekte linned T lige lige skinny jeans og en skulder tal, som ikke føles, som hun sætter det, “rødt tæppe-y” -piecer snoet med rock and roll sex appeal. “Jeg får inspiration fra folk som [Vogue Paris chefredaktør] Emmanuelle Alt og [spansk stylist] Barbara Martelo, “siger Huntington-Whiteley.” Kvinder der klæder elegant og feminint men ikke pige. ” 

Selvfølgelig er Huntington-Whiteley selv genstand for mange garderobeskabe. Hendes uniformer af tynde bukser, louchebluser, smarte jakker og hæle er emnet “Pinterest-board legend”. Mænd jeg er sidst, og temmelig underholdende, she has emerged as the prominent trendsetter of a timely subgenre: Google her name with the term “airport style”, and you get not less than 787,000 results. Therefore, the pictures on these pages, for which Huntington-Whiteley Gamely contributed creative direction. “Kigger tilbage til 60’erne og 70’erne, the journey had a real glamor because only the rich and famous could afford it,” she says, quoting Rolling Stone’s glamor with cavorting around with Jerry Hall and Anita Pallenberg. Tilføj den kendsgerning, at Huntington-Whiteley gennemsnitligt er omkring fire til seks fly om måneden-nogle med sin robust stilful filmstjernelovlovede, Jason Statham, og du har paparazzi ved hver port.

“Folk tror nok, at I’m overdressed at the airport,” she says, although she can quickly point out that she does not get more confused about the apartment than she wanted for a day of meetings or running around. “Mænd det er bare mig – en god tøj er min rustning. Jeg føler mig selvsikker og klar til at møde verden.” OK, men kvinden er ingen dummy. When the cabin door is sealed safely from the curious eyes and camera lenses, she changes the bathroom. Off går supermodel getup og ud kommer cashmere bukser, T-shirt og tøfler. Og for pladen er løvet i første klasse lige så lille og trangt som den i træner. “Jeg falder normalt og sidder hurtigt mellem væggene,” siger hun om sin foreløbige metode. Another tip that’s worth considering even for those of us who will not be photographed by landing: Hun bringer alltid en ekstra skjorte i tilfelle midair spill. 

Rosie-on-the-go Rosie, som aldrig er jeg en-for-en-lang-tid Rosie-er-en-mode Huntington-Whiteley ved det helt sikkert godt. I last time she dog wondered how it would be less nomadic when she moved into the 30’s. “I feel sometimes, at the last 13 years have been used in the air,” she says, adding that feet planted on more solid soil would enable her to cement meaningful new friendships and relationships, but also tend to exist . “I’m looking forward to starting a family,” she says, describing her bond with Statham as the “most beloved and sacred thing in my life.” Hun vil også gerne se sine yngre søskende, Florence og Toby oftere, såvel som hendes forældre. “Den største gave, de nogensinde gav mig frihed til at gå ud og udforske, da jeg var ung,” siger hun. “Now where I grow older, I feel more eager to spend time with them.”

Whatever the future, Huntington-Whiteley will not wait for her to come. “I’ve always had a clear idea of ​​what I wanted to reach next,” she says, and does not sound far from the teenager who was heading to London. “I am very driven, and I visualize what I want for my life.” And if it means fewer flying miles, we just have to get our airport style inspiration from somewhere else.
