It's not enough these days to just model: you've got to have your own line, too. So Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is following her model forebears by launching her own lingerie line with Marks & Spencer, one of Britain's biggest high street retailers.
According to the Telegraph, the Rosie for Autograph collection will include 33 different pieces, including kimono-style robes, camisoles and your regular undies and bras, all set to launch in September.
While we're not sure how up to snuff Rosie's design skills are, she does have years of experience in the wearing lingerie department as a Victoria's Secret Angel, as well as modeling for Marks & Spencer (we especially loved her M&S campaign with Ryan Reynolds, natch).
Rosie for Autograph is a savvy move for the model, one that will undoubtedly extend her name beyond the runway and catalog pages. As a recent first-timer on the The Sunday Times Rich List, Huntington-Whiteley is poised to grow her brand like Gisele Bundchen or Elle Macpherson, both of whom have their own successful lingerie lines.
Of course this is Rosie's first venture, done in collaboration with an already-successful brand. But between movies and retail, we're curious to see where this young British model goes.
