Style Icon: Rosie Huntington-Whitley

By Libby Vertz

If Fergie’s anthem “Glamorous” were to characterize one woman right now, that woman would be Rosie Huntington-Whitley. Not only has the big-time model just taken the big screen by storm, she’s also just scored a prominent Marks and Spencer ad campaign with Ryan Reynolds.  And she’s made her way to the spotlight with poise, style, and glamour.

Like her resume, Rosie’s style encompasses a mix of things. She often goes for edgy styles; other times she’ll don a well-balanced vintage outfit. But the style she loves the most? Glam.

No matter the event, Rosie and her outfits are standouts. In her edgier looks, she often sports pieces in sleek darks. Common pieces for her include leather pants and jackets, studded accessories, boots, or fur pieces.  But in these looks she always appears perfectly glam. Check out this look she wore this April:

Sometimes, to lighten up her look, she’ll add a ladylike piece. Usually the piece is in a light hue, and becomes a main focal point to her outfit. These have included lace pieces or pale dresses worn with tough accessories. This white lace top paired with dark accessories makes her look dramatic, but lends a touch of innocence.


Other times, when going for something a bit fancier, she turns to vintage looks with all their style. Those styles include sequins, bows, bright colors, and lots of fur. She channels old-time actresses at the peak of their stardom with luxurious materials. Then she adds modern accessories. Take a look at this classic glam look:

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Rosie’s style is her ability to make any piece glamorous. She must have the magic touch.
