Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Stylish Stripes

The stripped pant has long been a staple among the rock n’ roll set, but as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proved earlier this week, it’s also a chic alternative to your basic jeans.

Spotted in New York City on Wednesday, the supermodel looked especially elegant wearing a pair of navy blue and white stripped trousers and a matching menswear-inspired blazer.  To elevate the look, Rosie added a streamlined Givenchy Antigona handbag, complete with subtle, striped trim, a pair of blue suede pumps and Stella McCartney’s famed cat-eye sunglasses.  Of course, you don’t have to be a supermodel to pull the English Rose’s runway-ready look.  Vertical stripes will help elongate the leg, giving you the freedom to invest in a skinny pair like these from Saint Laurent (and they’re on now sale).  Tack on a tailored blazer or menswear-inspired cardigan, a structured top-handle bag and pointy-toe pumps and you’re good to go!

Score Rosie’s rock-star look for less after the jump!

Candice Swanepoel showed the world exactly why she was named Maxim‘s Hottest Woman of the Year when she hit the red carpet at the Hot 100 party in West Hollywood last night.  Held at the Pacific Design Center, the Victoria’s Secret Angel —who smoldered in a black leather crop top and matching skin-tight pants— was joined by fellow Maxim hotties Lydia Hearst, Lisalla Montenegro and Samanatha Hoopes, along a number of VIPs including Drake, Sophia Bush, Paris Hilton and Chris Brown.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Has a Wet Hot Summer

British model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is affectionately known as “Rosebud” to her friends due to her endearing disposition and yes, those lips. And yet, on the set of VIOLETGREY’s June Issue cover story, the supermodel radiates a very different kind of energy.

Dressed in a black leather trench coat, scarlet red lips and matching elongated nails, Rosie takes center stage in the online magazine’s latest cover story, “Wet Hot Summer,” which launched online earlier today.  Shot on location at the Palm Desert home of Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub, Rosie proves she’s ‘no sugar, all spice,’ posing in a high-cut bodysuit and a vintage chiffon gown with her blonde hair gleaming in the desert sun.  Though she appears to be the same drop-dead gorgeous bombshell of her Victoria’s Secret days, the British beauty is somehow clouded in an air of mystery and intrigue, drawing us in with each snap of her bee-stung lips.
