Everybody loves Rosie!February 21st, 2012 by Hotel Fashionland received 2 Comments »
It’s always one of the most anticipated shows, and a handful of top names turned up for the Burberry Autumn Winter 2012 Womenswear Show in London this past Monday. (Above: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (L) and Mario Testino -Burberry Autumn Winter 2012 Womenswear.)
Held as part of London Fashion Week at Kensington Gardens, Rosie arrived clad in a fur-trimmed gray bomber jacket, peach-colored top, orange color block handbag and plum corduroy trousers with black platform pumps. Also on-hand to check out the brand’s latest looks was Kate Bosworth, who looked darling in a gray owl-printed sweater, black velvet bow tie belt, taupe-colored tweed pencil skirt, black leather clutch and brown suede booties.
The show appearance comes as Rosie recently sat down for an interview with the March 2012 issue of GQ Australia, in which she opened up about making it as a model. (L to R) Clemence Poesy, Eddie Redmayne and Rosie Huntington Whiteley.)
Of the experience, the 24-year-old told, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know – my mother taught me that. (Rosie (L) and Kate Bosworth.)
So when I went to London shortly after doing work experience, I popped into the agency to say hello and keep my contacts alive. There was a new agent there, and she asked if I wanted to give modeling a go. (L to R) Alexa Chung, Jeremy Irvine, Clemence Poesy, Eddie Redmayne, Whiteley and Mario Testino.)
I thought it might let me see deeper inside the industry, and so why not – I leapt at the opportunity. Within a year I was traveling to America, being booked for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie & Fitch. I started to make serious money. Suddenly, school didn’t seem quite so important.”Celebrity, Fashion, Fashion Week, Hotel Fashionland, Models, Photographers
