Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wishes she wasn’t wearing sweatpants the first time she met Cindy Crawford.
The two supermodels recently took part in a discussion regarding their respective beauty ventures, with Rosie running her Rose Inc. website, and Cindy founding skincare line Meaningful Beauty in 2005.
However, during the chat, Rosie divulged that she regrets not being more dressed-up when she first encountered the fashion icon.
“The first time I saw you was at Nobu in Malibu. I’d gone in a T-shirt and sweatpants. Then you walked in, one of my all-time icons, so elegant in great jeans and a beautiful blouse, with classic hair and makeup,” she recalled. “Heads turned, and I thought, ‘That is a supermodel.’ Then I thought, ‘I can never again go to a restaurant in sweatpants’ – and I never have.”
While Cindy remembered once seeing Rosie catching a flight at London’s Heathrow Airport and thought she had discovered the “next great model”.
Yet, when she spotted the 32-year-old speaking to photographer Mario Testino, she knew the blonde beauty must have already been scouted.
“I thought, ‘I guess I’m not the only person to realise this woman is gorgeous,'” the fashion star smiled.
Elsewhere in the interview, Cindy and Rosie spoke about how they find it validating when women approach them to tell them how much they enjoy using their products, and what it’s like to be working mothers.
And while taking on numerous projects can be challenging, Cindy lauded women in business for having to be so strong and resilient.
“The real bada*s thing, Rosie, is getting up the next morning after you’ve had that bad day. I think that’s when all women are bada*ses,” the 53-year-old added.
