Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has an interview in the Harper’s Bazaar December 2011 issue, and the “Transformers 3″ star and Victoria’s Secret Angel revealed that despite her good looks today, she had an ugly-duckling phase.
“I was a bit of an Ugly Betty when I was 15,” she admitted, adding that she would head to castings “in trainers, with braids, a ton of makeup, plucked eyebrows… I had braces.” Her swan moment came at 18, when she signed with Victoria’s Secret.
Today, Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley is often asked to do her runway walk at parties. “There’s always a moment when some great song comes on and everyone’s like, ‘Do the runway walk, Rosie!’ And you’re like, ‘No, no, no,’ and then you begrudgingly get up and do your thing. It might be my little party trick. It always gets applause.”
In the photos that accompany the interview, Huntington-Whiteley rocks phenomenal tribal-print fashion for the expert lens of Greg Kadel. See some of the Harper’s Bazaar stills below.
