Star Style Obsession - Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley

This model-turned-actress is probably one of the most beautiful girls on the planet, meaning that she could make little to no effort with her clothes and still look incredible. And no, I'm not jealous at all.. Anyway, the fact remains that despite being naturally stunning, Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley has a seriously gorgeous wardrobe and pretty much always looks incredible, whether relaxed and off duty, or ramping up the glam factor for a red-carpet event. Her enviable figure is always showcased to perfection, and her makeup is perpetually immaculate - but that's not the reason I want to be her. I want to be Rosie because she simply oozes high class sex appeal - not raunchy in a Good-Girl-Gone-Bad-Rihanna kind of way, but she just is sexy, classy and gorgeous all in one. Never does this girl look over the top, or innapropriate, and her knack for dressing for the occasion is something I am currently trying to develop. But anyway, as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words, so here are thousands of words about the lovely Rosie!

Here's an oldie, from a little bit before Huntingdon-Whiteley fever struck, and even a few years back it is plain to see that she has incredible style. And look how well that outfit would translate to now - a Hollywood-style red dress screams glamour in any timeframe, and just how fashionable is fur right now? This is a timeless starlet look, and suits her literally down to the ground.

This trend-driven outfit is one of my favourites - it was a bit of a risk that paid off in a stunning way. There aren't many who could pull off that lime green (I couldn't, and so the envy increases..), but on Rosie it just looks striking and beautiful. The sheer skirt is a clever way of showing off those mile-long legs, but in a subtler way, and incorporating an on-trend maxi - kudos.

Jaw-droppingly gorgeous, right? That dress fits her like a glove, and the midnight blue hue is stunning. For once in my life I will admit that less can be more.. the fact that she hasn't overloaded this dress with accessories, and has pulled her beautiful hair back only makes it more striking. Bravo. 

Another simple, satin-effect frock on show here, and this lingerie-style one is simply divine. The blush colour coordinates perfectly with her hair and skin tone, and again the simple styling lets all the focus land on Rosie and her natural beauty - this look is faultless.

Rosie does boudoir-sexy again to perfection - I adore the corset detailing on the top, and the stunning fabric of the skirt, which is also a perfect length to balance the outfit and stop it being too much. Here I also love the fully loaded curls and subtle, flattering makeup that literally make Rosie smoulder, in the most gorgeous sense of the word.

As one of the new M&S girls, Rosie is obligated to wear their dresses from time to time, and she does it to great effect! I honestly can't imagine anyone looking better in this optical illusion dress, and even though it is available to us mere mortals I wouldn't want to take her on and attempt to rock it. It makes her already enviable body look even more perfect, emphasizing her curves perfectly.

Of course, it's not all party-perfect dresses, Rosie does like to try more adventurous pieces, like this faux fur beauty. Personally I would have at least opted for tights underneath, but her bravery must be applauded. And to be fair, she does have amazing legs, so she has the right to show them off!

Now here's a winter look I would love to imitate. Carbon black, while being a little done-to-death, is a classic, and easily updated with a mix of textures, a la Rosie. Adding in a cute hat and super-luxe bag just makes the outfit even more stylish and takes it to another level, fashion wise.

This just proves that she can look amazing in anything. She's wearing jeans and flip flops for crying out loud - only a statuesque beauty like Rosie could manage to look on trend in flip flops, and not like they just put on any old ugly sandals.. I think the sheer shirt and uber-luxe bag were the necessary additions to level out the casual vibe the sandals exude here.

So yes, Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley is beautiful. Yes, I want to be her. We've covered this already. To wrap up, I just want to say how much I want to hate her for her looks, but because she's not lazy with them, and seems like a genuinely lovely person, I simply can't. That and the fact that I read in an interview that she loves toast makes her a bit of a hero to me. For your information, I love toast. But that's irrelevant. Anyway, since I am being called off for dinner, I'll satisfy myself with saying that I hope you now see why Rosie is one of my style obsessions - her fuss-free, fully loaded looks always hit the mark and I literally dream of looking that good. Love and kisses, Tara xox
