The break room at Victoria’s Secret is seeing a lot of birthday cakes this week, as we follow up Constance Jablonski‘s birthday with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley turning 27 years old today–that being April 18th in the Year of Our Good Lord 2014. Which also makes this a pretty Great Friday, because it’s never a bad idea to look back at the amazing career of one of fashion’s hottest bods.
Also, we’re big fans of how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has always refused to have a nose job, and therefore avoids looking like another generic mannequin in the modeling world. That’s even more impressive when you consider that this very English gal comes from the kind of high society that usually embraces that kind of thing.
Models, of course, embraces stories about how they were made fun of in school for being gawky and having small breasts. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has a similar sad tale, but we’re pretty sure that school got better when Rosie was 17 years old and modeling for Teen Vogue and some of the fashion world’s most respected photographers. Victoria’s Secret was very interested in the rising star, and signed Rosie on as a model in 2006.
That did a lot for the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley brand. She was on the cover of British Vogue by the end of 2008 issue, where she was posing with fellow Brit and VS model Jourdan Dunn. Her work for Victoria’s Secret also introduced her to director Michael Bay, who brought her into the cast of 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. She’d already gone Hollywood by dating Jason Statham, though.
They’ve been together for a while, but we’re pretty sure Jason won’t kick our ass out of admiring Rosie’s amazing handbra work, and her sexy Christmas spot from last year, and even this fine gallery of pics all taken from just this past year. Yeah, it’s already been a great 2014 for Rosie, and let’s celebrate her birthday by looking at what she’s done for guys…
