Queen Rosie.

In 2008, Devon-born model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was relatively unknown. Especially to those off the fashion radar, despite her work with Victoria's Secret since 2006. Then the creative director of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, chose her to front the Autumn/Winter 2008 campaign for the brand alongside Brit actor Sam Riley. This catapulted Rosie into the limelight and after that, contracts flew in for the model thick and fast. For example: two British Vogue covers, Burberry make-up and perfume campaigns, a lead role in Transformers 3 (replacing notable actress/screen siren Megan Fox) and a promotion from a Victoria's Secret model to a Victoria's Secret Angel to name but a few.

Where it all started: the Burberry A/W 2008 campaign.

Her wardrobe seems to also have grown with her success. Whether she is attending a red carpet event, premiere, festival or supermarket, Rosie oozes style and always looks impeccable. Here are some of my favourite red carpet looks from the model turned actress over the last few years cementing her as another of my style icons:

Wearing Naeem Khan at the Berlin Premiere of Transformers 3 showcasing her unrivalled figure.

Wearing Dolce & Gabbana and nude Christian Louboutins whilst promoting Transformers 3 in Asia.

Like other years, for the 2011 Met Gala, Rosie chose to wear Burberry... showing just enough skin.

Rosie also impressed with her hair and make-up at this event. SO elegant.

As I said before, it isn't just at premieres and appearances that Rosie's style shines. A favourite on Tumblr, Rosie's day time looks have become extremely popular with the blogging elite:

Impressing at Coachella 2012 in Christopher Kane shorts and white shirt.

Out shopping in LA wearing Balmain jeans and carrying a Celine tote.

Clearly back in England with her maroon leather jacket, scarf and jeans combo.

So, another VS Angel has been added to my list of style queens. Who will be next? Another angel perhaps? Or will Christopher Bailey's new muse, and star of Burberry's current campaigns, Cara Delevingne join Rosie, Miranda and Jessica Alba?

Only time will tell.
