English supermodel and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (you’ve probably used her Victoria’s Secret ads as your workout motivation) is one of those women who prompt the thought “not fair.” At 28, she’s been the face of Burberry, Moroccanoil and Paige Denim, among countless other brands, and the campaigns just keep on coming. Not to mention, she’s also starred in two Hollywood blockbusters and does charitable work with UNICEF on the side. What is it this blond bombshell can’t do? Here, we get a little glimpse of Rosie’s world.
NewBeauty: How do you keep your skin looking so radiant?
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Sun protection is so important for beautiful skin and I love the new Moroccanoil Sun Lotion SPF 50. It protects against UV rays and is lightweight, so it absorbs quickly and without greasy residue. I also see my facialist Shani Darden once a month for a deep cleanse of my skin.
NB: What is the most important lesson modeling has taught you?
RHW: I have learned many valuable lessons over the course of my career, but I would say the most important one of all is to be independent, have a positive attitude and always do your best in any given circumstance. When you get knocked down, pick yourself up and get back on track, and of course, take it all with a grain of salt.

NB: Which Moroccanoil products should be on every woman’s radar?
RHW: Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo is a definite! I use the Light Tone version, which has violet undertones that boost my color for the perfect vibrant blond hue. It leaves a silky, ultraclean finish that’s a bit sexy and undone, and I love that effortless look. The Moroccanoil Treatment Light is also a must-have for me. It makes my hair more manageable and easy to style. I love how weightless it is and how it makes my hair look and feel healthier every time I use it. And, the Moroccanoil Fleur D’Oranger Body Soufflé. It provides instant hydration and leaves my skin feeling silky-smooth.
NB: If you could snap your fingers and change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
RHW: I don’t think you can ever stop working toward having more empathy, more patience and more consideration toward other people.
NB: What was your craziest on-set beauty look?
RHW: I have had a few!!! Most recently, stylist Carine Roitfeld and photographer Jean-Paul Goude transformed me into Diana Vreeland…that was quite a different look for me!
NB: You’ve said you’re a fitness fanatic. What are your go-to workouts?
RHW: Right now I’m addicted to a workout class called Body by Simone. It’s a high-energy dance cardio class. The music is loud and the environment is fun and empowering. I have seen excellent results in my fitness levels, strength and physique. I also love to do yoga and Pilates for a more calmer, restorative type of workout. I try to increase my heart rate at least once a day.
NB: What are your can’t-live-without wardrobe staples?
RHW: I live in denim and leather! My favorite denim brand for years has been Paige Denim. I’ve been lucky enough to be the face of the brand for the last year. It’s always more meaningful when you truly love the brands you represent.
NB: You have more than 3.5 million followers on Instagram. What’s one thing your followers may not know about you?
RHW: That I like to collect antique furniture, especially mid-century style, ceramics and anything that smells of roses!
NB: You’ve done beauty, fragrance and lingerie collaborations. What’s next for you?
RHW: Hopefully more of the same, continuing to build my brand and branch into different areas that interest me. I feel very lucky for getting the opportunities I’ve had so far in my career. Creating and launching my own lingerie brand and fragrance, Rosie For Autograph, has been particularly exciting and fulfilling for me.
