Rosie Huntington-Whitely was born to fitness instructor Fiona and chartered surveyor Charles at Freedom Fields Hospital, Devon in 1987.

The blonde beauty grew up on a farm and attended Tavistock College, where she was asked to complete a work experience assignment at the age of 15.

She spent time at Profile Model Management, a London-based agency who signed her a year later in 2003.

Rosie’s first campaign was for Levi’s and in 2004 she was snapped for Teen Vogue in New York, strutted down a catwalk with Naomi Campbell and modelled for Abercrombie & Fitch.

In 2008, Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey helped really raise Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s public profile. He cast her in the luxury brand’s autumn/winter campaign alongside actor Sam Riley.

Her first British Vogue cover followed later that year and in 2009, Rosie was named Model Of The Year at the Elle Style Awards. In 2010 she officially became a Victoria’s Secret Angel and took part in the US lingerie firm’s annual fashion show.

As well as posing naked for a Pirelli calendar, walking for Prada in Paris and Giles Deacon in Milan, Rosie was given the chance to show off another of her skills in 2010.

The 5ft 9in star was announced as the female lead in Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon. She starred alongside Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel as Carly Spencer in the action film, which was released in 2011.

Multi-talented Rosie has also designed a number of seasonal lingerie and underwear lines for British retailer M&S.

Throughout her career, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s love life has come into the spotlight on a few occasions.

She dated Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood’s son Tyrone from 2007-2009 and enjoyed a brief romance with French hunk Olivier Martinez before hooking up with actor Jason Statham in 2010.
