Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is really feeling the love since becoming a mother.

Rosie and fiance Jason Statham welcomed son Jack in June 2017, and over the past year, the model has relished being a first-time mum.

Talking to ET at the opening of Intersect by Lexus in New York on Tuesday (14Aug18), Rosie shared how much she is loving her new family life.

“The best part about being a mum is just the love,” she gushed. “It’s just so beyond overwhelming, all the emotions, but at the end of the day, family just becomes the most important thing and it means everything.”

The English model recently accompanied Hollywood hardman Jason to the Los Angeles premiere of his new film The Meg, where she stunned in plunging, floor-length black dress.

But before they hit the red carpet, the 31-year-old uploaded a picture to Instagram of her and a suited and booted Jason, 51, with baby Jack photobombing their snap.

“He (was) like, ‘Take me with you’… Family moments are so precious, and it was just one of those moments where we were having our picture taken – we always take a little picture before we leave the house – and he came running out wanting to also be in the picture. He was in his nappies, so he was a little underdressed, but it was just a cute family moment,” she smiled.

Rosie also urged other new mums to “take it easy” on themselves as they adjust to parenthood.

“I am, like, 13 months in – I am not in the position to give any mom any tips. Take it easy on yourself. That’s what I’m trying to learn,” she offered.

Jamie Dornan has been tapped as the new face of Hugo Boss’ BOSS The Scent.

The popular fragrance is available in versions for men and women, and the Irish actor will front the latest campaign alongside Dutch model Birgit Kos, who has previously walked the runway for Fendi, Alexandre Vauthier, Versace and Roberto Cavalli.

And Jamie, who previously enjoyed a modelling career after appearing on British television show Model Behaviour in 2001, was honoured to embody the brand’s classic ethos.

“For me, Boss represents sophistication, masculinity and elegance,” he said in a statement released to WWD.

Of the collaboration, Birgit, 22, added: “Working with Jamie was great. I could not have asked for a better person to work with.”

The Fifty Shades of Grey star has partnered with Hugo Boss in the past, having showcased the label’s ready-to-wear garments and underwear from 2006 to 2008. He also appeared in the German brand’s fall/winter 2011 campaign.

Other luxury collaborations include Aquascutum, Armani, Dior and Calvin Klein, while the actor has been lucky enough to pose with fashion icons including Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as well as actress Eva Mendes.

Though Jamie is pleased to announce his latest venture with Hugo Boss, acting remains his priority and later this year (18) he can be seen in movies including Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood and Matthew Heineman’s A Private War. The 36-year-old even previously admitted that he never believed modelling was his calling.

“I’ve never felt massively satisfied from standing there while someone takes my photograph,” he told The Evening Standard in 2014. “It’s never given me a thrill, but it would take a very foolish man to turn down the stuff that was offered to me.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley practices intermittent fasting in the lead-up to a big event.

The British model is one of the most sought-after names in the fashion industry, having fronted campaigns for the likes of Burberry, Paige Denim and Marks & Spencer. While Rosie is adamant that she “loves” food, she has now shared that she will ditch carbs and ensure she eats at only certain times of the day prior to photoshoots or red carpets.

“If I’m preparing for an event, I will be carb-free and eat all my meals in a 10-hour window during the day. I will fast for the rest of the time,” she told InStyle.com. “I try to eat dinner before 6 p.m. Sometimes before a shoot, for a few days I’ll have only broth and then a bigger meal in the evening. That just gets rid of any water retention.”

Rosie is certain drinking lots of water throughout the day helps her maintain her figure. But she is still also adjusting to her new body, having welcomed her son Jack with actor fiance Jason Statham in June 2017.

“I had to shed 50 pounds (22 kilograms) of baby weight, which was a first for me,” the 31-year-old divulged.

During the interview, Rosie also discussed her new beauty website Rose Inc. and her longtime passion for hair products and cosmetics. She counts RMS Beauty Living Luminizer and iS Clinical Active Serum as some of her favourite products to use but is always seeking new formulas to try out.

“At home, I have probably 30 products for skin and 15 for hair. Is that a lot?” she smiled.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley struggled to express her views as a young model

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley found it difficult to express her opinions when she was a young model.

The British model is one of the most-sought after names in the fashion industry, having fronted campaigns for the likes of Burberry, Paige Denim and Marks & Spencer.

However, Rosie has now shared that it took her a long time to gather up the confidence to speak to photographers and stylists about how she should look when posing in photoshoots.

“For so many years as a model, I never got a say. It was something I struggled with as a young model: you were hired, you turned up at work, and you did not get an opinion. I felt deep inside of me that things had to shift,” she told her go-to make-up artist Katie Jane Hughes in an interview for her new Rose Inc. website. “The second half of my career has been more fulfilling, because through various turns and changes, I’ve been able to become an equal member of the team. Now I’m able to sit down with an artist and a team and say, ‘Why don’t we try this?’ Or, ‘What are you thinking?'”

By launching Rose Inc., Rosie hopes to share top tricks from beauty professionals as well as social media influencers and bloggers. And the former Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ is adamant that just about anyone can now be a master of make-up.

“Everybody’s talking about how people apply make-up so heavily nowadays. I can’t help but think back to the ’70s and ’80s. People wore so much colour – it was really extravagant,” the 31-year-old shared. “Now I think the difference is that it’s more skillful. Because of social media, you’re able to educate yourself on how to wear it, so you’re able to go on YouTube and learn. Whereas before, people maybe wore heavy make-up, but it wasn’t so finessed.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has launched her own beauty website, Rose Inc..

The model hinted she was working on a make-up project through a series of teaser Instagram posts early last week (21May18), and the results of her work went live online on Tuesday (29May18).

As well as products tried and tested by Rosie herself, Rose Inc. will also feature editorial content such as personal interviews and make-up tutorials, with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel keen to divulge all the tricks of the supermodel trade.

“This outlet is my way of sharing everything that I’ve gleaned over the years,” the 31-year-old wrote in a welcome letter on the website. “Timeless make-up tricks that instantly make you feel like your best self. Products and regimens that can get you glowing, and stat. Ways to turn a bad hair day into a great ponytail day, or what to do when dinner with friends calls for the perfect glam look. And, of course, a glimpse into some of my friends’ make-up bags. Babes, it’s all here.”

However, the fashion icon, who has been inspired by celebrity brands like Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, insisted that she didn’t want the platform to be treated as a “rule book” but rather “your best girlfriend’s notebook.”

Rosie, who admitted some of her favourite times at work were when she was sat in the make-up chair, revealed the desire to pursue her love of beauty stemmed from a feeling that emerged in the latter stages of her pregnancy.

“Towards the very end of my pregnancy, I had this urge to be really creative,” the mother-of-one, who welcomed son Jack with fiance Jason Statham just over 11 months ago, explained to Vogue U.S. “In many ways, I feel like my whole career has led up to this point. I want the (Rose Inc.) content to feel inclusive and positive—(because) that’s the only way I like to work.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley appears to have confirmed she has a new cosmetics line in the works.

The model took to Instagram on Monday night (21May18) to share a series of close up photos showing different parts of her face.

Every picture was captioned “@roseinc #comingsoon,” while the bio on Rose Inc.’s official Instagram page reads: “Beauty from the Insider out.”

As a result, many of Rosie’s fans suspect that this is the name of an upcoming beauty brand.

In the photos, the British beauty showcased feathered brows and dewy skin, as well as creamy pink blush and eye make-up paired with a soft neutral lip. She also kept to the apparent pink and yellow colour scheme by dangle orb earrings in the same shades.

This wouldn’t be the first time the 31-year-old has delved into the make-up industry; she developed the Rosie for Autograph line in collaboration with British department store Marks & Spencer. However, unlike her M&S offering, beauty lovers are hoping her latest project will accept deliveries to the U.S. too.

Rosie, who gave birth to her first child Jack with partner Jason Statham last June, has also landed the Harper’s Bazaar Australia cover slot this month, and she shared with the publication the secrets behind her post-pregnancy physique.

“I think I have felt the pressure, but more so from myself than anyone else. I’m not one for extreme diets so it has taken time and it’s really just now that I have started feeling more comfortable,” the catwalk star explained, adding that she enjoys taking part in dance-based workouts alongside her Australian trainer Simone De La Rue at her namesake studio in Los Angeles. “I love that I don’t have to go to a gym and have a personal trainer talking to me while I’m running on a machine.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley talks ‘questionable’ Coachella style: ‘It can look like fancy dress’

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has called out the “questionable” style that’s on show at Coachella.

With the annual festival, which falls over two weekends in April, just days away, Coachella regular Rosie has shared her top fashion tips for festivalgoers who are preparing to head to the site, situated in the Colorado Desert.

“It’s so hot, first of all. It’s so hot in the desert, unbelievably hot. So, you’re battling being comfortable and feeling cool. My opinion is, there’s a lot of – how do I put this politely? There’s a lot of questionable outfits that go on at Coachella,” Rosie told W magazine. “I also feel like, if festival style is not your style 365 days of the year, it looks like you’re going to a costume party.

“So for me, if I go to a festival or Coachella, I would keep it very simple, like denim cutoffs, a cool T-shirt or slip top, something kind of sexy and easy that you’ll feel cool in – temperature wise. And then a boot, maybe with a little heel – a little wedge bootie or flat boot – a bag that can hold all your c**p in it for the whole day, maybe a side bag, some good jewellery. But keep it easy, don’t try too hard. It’s so worth going to Coachella just for the people watching, I will say.”

The English model, who welcomed her first child, son Jack, with fiance Jason Statham last June (17), also dished out beauty advice for those heading off to see The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem perform this weekend (14-15Apr18).

She noted sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins, and a great blusher, tinted powder and blotting papers are her make-up essentials.

“I don’t know if (looking like a hot mess) it’s avoidable,” she laughed. “By the way, you should look like a hot mess at a music festival! That’s the point of going to a music festival, to be carefree and not give a s**t about how you look, to be listening to music and having fun with your friends and be sweaty. To me, that’s how I think of a music festival.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has recalled how she felt “unprotected” on some of her early photoshoots.

The British model is one of the most-sought after names in the fashion industry, having fronted campaigns for the likes of Burberry, Paige Denim and Marks & Spencer.

Rosie has now been working in the business for 15 years, and in light of the #MeToo movement gaining momentum following a wave of sexual harassment scandals rocking Hollywood in recent months, has now described how she often didn’t feel comfortable on some shoots.

“There’s definitely been instances where I’ve felt unprotected and moments where I found myself in situations that were uncomfortable,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. “The fashion industry is so relaxed and casual, there’s this expectation on models that the more up for it you are, the better, the further you’ll go along in your career.”

Rosie went on to explain that there have been instances where she didn’t speak out because she feared she would lose her job or upset people. And she finds it frustrating that modelling still isn’t considered to be “a real career”.

“With modelling, it’s always been deemed as not a real career and there’s a lot of expectation on girls that the better the model you are, the quieter you are and the least amount of fuss you make,” the 30-year-old shared. “Over the last few years, what’s been really great for me is that I’ve managed to work myself into a position where I’m able to have my voice heard and work with people who want to empower me.”

In addition to modelling, Rosie has broken into the film industry with appearances in movies such as 2011’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Interestingly, the blonde beauty explained that movie sets are often much better organised and regulated than fashion shows and photoshoots.

“I’ve been lucky enough to work on a couple of films as an actress. There’s a union, there’s insurance, there’s regulations, there’s work hours, there’s boundaries,” she said.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dishes on her speedy beauty routine

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley spends no more than five minutes on her make-up each morning.

The British supermodel is known for her long blonde hair and full pout, which she has showed off in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Balmain, Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana.

After working with so many hair and make-up professionals over the years, Rosie’s picked up numerous tips, and has now shared that she can get ready in mere minutes.

“First off, I start with a little beauty elixir and this just gives a really nice, smoothing, healthy glow. It tingles and it feels amazing,” she said of French brand Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir in a video for Vogue, before going on to add a primer from South Korean company Eborian to her face.

Rosie then massaged in Eborian’s BB Creme with Ginseng over her face and explained that she prefers to use her fingertips for application.

“I like to use my hands because it’s quick, easy, and the warmth of the hands kind of diffuses the product into your face in a more natural way. And I feel you can correct what you’re doing much, much easier,” the 30-year-old shared.

She then dabs on a little of Glossier’s Balm Dotcom onto her lips, pops on some concealer from her beauty line Rosie for Autograph around her eyes and nose, brushes her eyebrows and swipes on some of Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour bronzer to the apples of her cheeks and onto the sockets of her eyes for a “natural contour”.

Other products the model favours include black mascara, Jillian Dempsey’s Lid Tints and Rosie for Autograph Lip & Cheek Colour sticks, while she also uses highlighter on her cheeks, cupid’s bow and brow bone.

“The last thing, this is like a tinted kind of foundation powder, so this just gives me an extra little bit of coverage,” she shared of Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau Powder Foundation Compact, before adding that she’s kept the same beauty regime for years, even after welcoming her son Jack with fiance Jason Statham last June (17). “My make-up routine definitely did not change since becoming a mum.”

Saint Laurent has offered up a line rock star-inspired looks for its fall/winter 2018 collection.

Creative director Anthony Vaccarello unveiled his latest range for the French luxury brand as part of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday night (27Feb18), with the likes of Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Zoe Kravitz and U.S. editor-in-chief Anna Wintour all flocking to the front row.

The presentation kicked off with fashion darling Kaia Gerber, the daughter of Cindy Crawford, strutting her stuff in a pair of black leather shorts, a floral print top and a cropped jacket, with the ensemble accessorised with ankle boots and a wide-brimmed hat.

A procession of edgy ensembles followed, with one model wearing a sheer top under a bedazzled blazer, cropped trousers, platform boots, and a scarf, while another sported a black lace minidress with plunging neckline that was accessorised with boots and silver hoop earrings.

Many looks were matched with wide belts with a silver diamond shape placed at the front, and a shiny dark purple leopard print fabric appeared on shirts and scarves.

Skinny black leather trousers, which wouldn’t be out of place in Mick Jagger’s wardrobe, featured throughout, as did oversized black faux fur coats.

Highlights of the collection included a black leather jumpsuit which was matched with a silver blazer with black leather pockets and lapels, as well as a black dress with silver studs with deep neckline and wide shoulders, an ’80s-inspired dress made from black and silver fabric with zebra print and a strapless black minidress with piece of brown fur draped across the neckline that was matched with a pair of high heels with eye-catching feather detailing.

The presentation concluded with a line-up of short dresses featuring red, purple and blue floral prints, with designs having either one-shoulder or Vaccarello’s favoured plunging necklines.
