Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wasn’t always the confident woman that she is today. Just like everyone else, she was once just a shy teen with big dreams. Instead of boy-bands, her bedroom walls were covered in pictures of models: “I was obsessed with fashion. I was just fascinated by these images and the photo shoots – and what went into that, what happened behind the scenes. How you create that glamour and mystery and the theatrical nature of the picture – that was what really interested me and my bedroom was just full of pictures of models and tear-outs from magazines.” She was still in her teens when she made her debut, at age 17, following the footsteps of her idols: “I really looked up to Gisele, because I think that was when she was in her heyday – well, it’s always been her heyday – but she was newer at that time. And Kate Moss too, of course. She’s just iconic.” And speaking of dreams come true, the model/actress is selling her bachelorette apartment in New York in favor of building a home with boyfriend Jason Statham. Pictured here, Huntington-Whiteley a casual all-black look with Burberry aviators, perfect for everyday summer wear.
