Childhood and youth
The future star was born in a small town of Plymouth. Rosie Huntington Whitley spent her childhood in a farm, surrounded by domestic animals. It is unlikely that a simple provincial girl could imagine that soon it will be successful on the world’s catwalks, and designers of famous houses will vied to offer her cooperation. However, fame and universal recognition came to her not at once. In the biography of Rosie Huntington, Wylie has a very sad page and she is connected with her schooling. It turns out that in the childhood years of the future model it was not easy: the evil classmates harassed the girl, distorted her name and even ridiculed her appearance, calling her braces and plump lips ugly. You can imagine their surprise and envy, when out of the ugly duckling the girl suddenly became a real beauty and even a sex symbol!
Of course, her mother played a big role in revealing the beauty of Rosie Huntington Wylie. As a professional fitness trainer, she has always seriously monitored the health and appearance of her daughter, accustoming her to sports and a healthy lifestyle. In addition, Fiona Jackson had a great taste and love of fashion, which she tried to instill in her daughter. The girl remembers that with their mother they could watch the magazine “Vogue” for hours and be inspired by the images of the models. Perhaps, it was these glossy pages that gave birth to a young girl dream of another, beautiful and bright life. Little Plymouth and the parent farm soon fed her, and Rosie decided to move. And not somewhere, but to London!
However, the girl did not even think about the modeling career, intending to link her life with a different field of activity. So, at the age of 16, she was trained in Tavistock and decided to get a job as a manager of public relations. Our heroine sent her resume to one of the London agencies Profile Models, but she was not taken by the manager. The agency decided that with such an interesting appearance the girl should definitely go to the model and immediately offered her a contract! That’s how Huntington Wylie began her work as a model.
The heyday of a career
In 2003, Rosie took part in her first photo shoot. These were shootings for the Levi Strauss brand. A year later, the girl first walked in defile during the High Fashion Week, held in New York. Of course, the appearance of the model was appreciated and soon it was photographed for fashion glossy magazinesElle girl and Teen Vogue.
At the 2006 show, the girl demonstrated underwear from a new collection of the world-famous brand Victoria`s Secret. It is believed that the main event that influenced the outcome of her future career was cooperation with Christopher Bailey, the chief director of the fashion house Burberry. It was he who noticed the girl and made her the face of the autumn-winter collection. From that moment things went up the hill. After less than a year,Rosie HuntingtonWylie became the face of the spring-summer collection from Karen Millen, and soon even received the official status of an “angel” in the already familiar company Victoria`s Secret.
More and more eminent photographers invited Rosie to the shooting. So, Paul Rankin filmed it for one of the albums from Thomas Wylde, and a photographer from America Terry Richardson even held a photo session with a nude Huntington Wylie for a calendar from Pirelli. The face of the young model increasingly appeared in magazines: it lit up on the cover of one of the numbers “Harper’s Bazaar”, As well as in advertising clothes and accessories from the Loewe brand. In 2011, Rosie Huntington Wylie suddenly took 1st place in the list of the hottest models, and the magazine “Maxim” and at all recognized her as the sexiest beauty on this planet!
Once the British photographer Rankin Wadell, who shot our heroine, mentioned that the girl has a good talent of actor’s talent. And this phrase was not an empty sound, because in a short time the girl was really offered to star in the film!
This was one of the main roles of the cult film “Transformers: The Dark Side of the Moon”. In the past parts of the franchise, the star was the incomparable Megan Fox, but in the “Dark Side of the Moon” Rosie Huntington Wylie was already in her place. When the director, whom the girl already knew from the times of the shows, invited her to audition, she counted on a modest supporting role and could not even imagine that she would be offered a really serious character. Of course, the model agreed to the proposal and excellently played the role given to it, discovering a new path to the cinematograph.
Most recently, in 2015, the movie “Mad Max” appeared on the screens and Rosie Huntington Wylie again got herself one of the roles. Although the character is of secondary importance, the screen time was enough. Actress really well tried and the role was very memorable. Obviously, this is not the last work of the model in the cinema and in the future it will still appear on the screens.
