Of course, models look amazing on the runway, but it's their off-duty street styles that we really love to see. It's an easy field to pick your own patron saint from — with women like Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Gisele Bündchen to choose from, anybody can find style inspiration.
We love following Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's casual off-duty looks, but last night at an event in Australia, the model ditched denim for a daring white crop top and fitted maxi skirt from the Calvin Klein Collection Resort 2013 lineup. Strappy silver sandals, a few delicate jewels, and a bold pink lip completed Rosie's pink carpet ensemble. Considering her svelte figure, we're not surprised that Rosie is fearless in putting her midriff on display. And she isn't the only one — many celebs are attempting the crop top trend this Summer. Tell us: are you into Rosie's midriff-baring Calvin Klein Collection ensemble?
Summer is the perfect time to live in maxi dresses — but when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stepped out in hers, we realized we're going to reach for a totally different kind of maxi this season. Unlike all those colorful flowy styles, Rosie's was fashion forward, streamlined, and beautifully draped. The model — whose style we monitor regularly — chose to add a summery flair to her statement dress via white espadrille wedges and white cat-eye sunglasses. What's great about draped dresses is that they can totally double as party or wedding attire with just a few fancy add-ons. Ready to get Rosie's latest look? Shop similar pieces below.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was the epitome of easy Summer glamour while running errands on a hot LA day. She went girlie in florals, choosing a sweet-meets-sexy pastel dress, which she styled with slouchy boots. With a warm weekend ahead, you can definitely expect to see us emulating Rosie's style!

You don't have to be a supermodel to dress like one. Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley both had the right idea when they reached for breezy Summer maxi dresses — and not just to beat the heat. In breathable, lightweight fabric — and with leg-flaunting slits — the maxi dress is just as easy to throw on as your cutoffs and tank tops, but looks that much more chic.
The proof is right here. Both Miranda's shirtdress and Rosie's more feminine maxi offer two takes on the piece that are just as appropriate for a laid-back weekend as they are for a dressier event. To that effect, they're not only a figure-flattering option, they also take the guesswork out of getting dressed. Just add in flat sandals and shades — or even cool-girl ankle boots à la Rosie — for your off-duty days, and dress it up with heels or wedges for an evening out. We told you you'd want to steal this trick. Just shop our picks below to style up your own for any Summer occasion.
Summer is prime time to get your beach (or pool) on, but before you leave home, don't forget to grab the perfect cover-up. Jet-setting celebrities like Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Jennifer Lopez definitely didn't. Jessica sported a zigzag caftan with white denim cutoffs and a Tory Burch fedora during her vacation in St. Barts. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley mixed a colorful sarong with her printed bandeau bikini in the South of France, while Jennifer Lopez donned a green printed maxi dress over a black triangle bikini in Miami. Sizzling all around, right? Now it's your turn to get in on the fun by shopping the hottest cover-ups below before you make your sunny escape.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Petra Nemcova, and Kylie Minogue were clearly on the same fashion wavelength when they all worked lace in Cannes. Rosie paired a white lace blouse with a nude miniskirt, then added a snakeskin clutch, nude Brian Atwood pumps, and aviator sunglasses for a cool-cum-dainty street style. Petra was the most overtly ladylike of the bunch in a blush lace knee-length dress, while Kylie embraced all white in a collared lace dress and ankle-strap sandals. Whose lady-in-lace look do you like best?
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opted for a much darker look this evening, wearing a Gucci gown featuring a sheer black-and-gold tulle top and satin skirt. To add to the high shine, the model accessorized with a lizard jeweled clutch, beautiful drop earrings, and a diamond gold statement ring. Are you loving her skin-revealing brand of glam?

Balmain is known for its rocker-girl appeal, and at last night's dinner hosted by the label's designer, Olivier Rousteing, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Nicole Richie caught our attention (and then some) wearing the brand's subversive pieces. Rosie channeled the '90s in a black and white look comprised of a printed leather check skirt, long-sleeved leather crop top, and sexy laser-cut boots. Meanwhile, Nicole took a slightly softer approach in an intricate summery knit minidress and soft gray suede pumps. Both look hot in their warm-weather party ensembles, but which one gets your best-dressed vote — Rosie or Nicole?
