Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Gives Sneak Peek of Lingerie Line

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Wears Lingerie in Elle Sept. 2012

Exposing only the slightest sliver of fabric, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley displays a small preview of her lingerie line for Marks & Spencer in the September 2012 issue of Elle UK.

A strap and a portion of an embellished bra cup peek out from under a purple sweater in one of photographer David Vasiljevic's shots from the issue, revealing that at least one piece of the collection is heavily detailed. The strap itself features embroidery, while the cup displays delicate cutout details. The rest of the pieces are scheduled to be available in Marks & Spencer stores on Aug. 30.

"I've wanted to design ever since I can remember and I fell into modeling through wanting to design and then, through my modeling career I modeled a lot of lingerie," says Huntington-Whiteley, who has worked for Victoria's Secret and Agent Provocateur.

"My top goal is for it to be accessible and appealing to everybody," she says. "I didn't design it for just me."

That mission may be especially important because of Huntington-Whiteley's start in the modeling industry, which she also discusses in the issue.

"There was no individuality, no opportunity to be individuals. I think that people forget you're human and you just become an object," she says. "I was constantly reminded that I wasn't right wherever I went and that was difficult because I'd come from a place where it didn't matter."
