Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has a crush on Balmain’s creative director.
The British model is a huge fan of the French fashion house, revealing they have created some of her favourite looks. Rosie, who is dating actor Jason Statham, also admits to admiring Balmain’s handsome creative genius Olivier Rousteing.
“My Balmain leather biker jacket is one of the most special items in my closet. I love leather jackets, but this one is so sharp and polished. Olivier is so young and talented – it’s unbelievable!” she told whowhatwear.com.”He’s such a sweet, cool man, and I have such a crush on him! I closed this season’s show in Paris; we had so much fun… Balmain’s [Spring/Summer 14] collection was to die for.”
Rosie regularly attends glitzy showbiz parties with Jason and loves turning heads on the red carpet.
The 26-year-old star has revealed some of her most memorable outfits from high-profile events, with Balmain again making an appearance on her list.
“Balmain, Antonio Berardi and Gucci are some of my favourite designers to wear on the red carpet,” she said. “Two of my favourite red carpet moments? A long red dress by Berardi for the Vanity Fair Oscar party and a long green Gucci ruffle neck dress for the LACMA Art + Film Gala last year.”
While choosing the items she can’t live without this season, Rosie revealed that sunglasses in Los Angeles are a “necessity”, jewellery is her “biggest” weakness and Anine Bing’s black leather pants are a wardrobe staple.
The model also spoke about her passion for designer footwear.
“Alaïa makes the sexiest shoes ever. I also love Jimmy Choo,” she said. “A girl can never have too many shoes!”
