English supermodel-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opens up to NET-A-PORTER’s weekly online fashion magazine, The EDIT, about her journey from quiet English girl to being part of a Hollywood power couple, starting a family and how she plans to grab every new opportunity life throws her way.
In this week’s Pioneer Spirit issue, the A-list model admits to still feeling self-conscious when recognized on the street and reveals to The EDIT that things are quieter in LA (where she has recently moved) than in London, where fans on the street go “crazy” for her actor boyfriend, Jason Statham, and treat him as though he’s someone they grew up with. “It can become a frenzy walking down the street with him,” she says in the interview.
However, despite the pressures of fame, Huntington-Whiteley, who stars in the new blockbuster film Mad Max: Fury Road, tells The EDIT she is excited by what the future holds, whether it’s having a family, living in England or America, or taking on more films. In the interview, she also talks amusingly about wrestling with LA’s casual attitude to fashion (her personal style is more polished), how starting a modelling career at 16 was “mental” and how early on in her career, she turned negative comments about her being “too wholesome” or “too healthy” into compliments.
For The EDIT, Huntington-Whiteley channels SS15’s American Pioneer runway look beautifully, riding on horseback in exquisite dresses by Alberta Ferretti, Erdem, Vera Wang and Bottega Veneta, complete with
tough-luxe Fendi boots – all of which can be purchased via NET-A-PORTER.COM. Rosie was photographed by David Bellemere and styled by Net-A-Porter’s Senior Style Editor, Tracy Taylor.
