The Devon-born beauty’s debut lingerie range hit M&S stores in August, and became the retailer’s fastest-selling lingerie collection of all time, with four items sold every minute on the launch day! The 33-piece collection features beautiful vintage-inspired designs, from boudoir bras to silk wraps and teddys. Inspired by the 1920s, Rosie’s creations are luxurious and decadent. Featuring exquisite lace detail, and made from silk, the collection exudes twenties glamour, which is utterly on-trend.

Rosie said of her designs; “I was drawn to the opulent elegance of the 20s, which really shows in the silks I chose and the intricate deco-inspired embroidery.” Adding, “It was also influenced by the rich colours of roses. From the muted tones of dusky pink and green to dramatic scarlet blooms, I wanted it to evoke the beauty of a gorgeous British garden in summer.”

The 25-year-old has an established career as a lingerie model, and has been shot for Victoria’s Secret, Agent Provocateur and Monsoon to name but a few. This experience stood the Victoria’s Secret Angel in good stead for designing and modelling her first collection for M&S, and she has certainly proved herself worthy. Rosie’s newest collection for M&S hit stores in late September, and moves away from the dusky pink tones to a more wintery, festive feel, with deep reds, greys and of course a hint of black lace.

Rosie also fronted M&S’s ‘Romance’ campaign with actor Ryan Reynolds last year, and drew in crowds at the opening of their flagship store on the Champs Elysees in Paris last November. This November, the British beauty joined Christopher Bailey in launching the brand new Burberry store in Hong Kong. Rosie stunned in a figure-hugging copper dress from Burberry Prorsum’s collection for spring 2013.

Rosie has been working with the British luxury fashion house since 2008, and their recent report of a 6 percent rise in profits can only be linked to her signature pout and flawless face and body. It seems Rosie has the golden touch when it comes to boosting sales, with her record-breaking M&S lingerie range standing out as a gleaming success amongst an otherwise gloomy set of sales figures from the retail giant.

The future is looking rather rosy for this fresh-faced beauty, whose latest role is in the hotly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road. In a recent interview with Stylist magazine, Rosie said of the role, “It’s looking like it is going to be a really exciting journey for me,” adding, “I think it’ll be a fantastic film. I can’t talk too much about [my role]. But I’m really excited. It’s been a really fun project so far.” Mad Max: Fury Road is due for release in 2013, but a specific date has not yet been confirmed.
