Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Sao Paulo Fashion Week Turn Marks Return To Runway (PHOTOS)

She's baaaack!

After spending her year doing seemingly anything but runway modeling -- shilling for Burberry, hitting the red carpet and, oh yeah, shooting a major action flick -- Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has returned to the runway.

Walking in Sao Paulo Fashion Week (which, as the Telegraph pointed out, is happening right now -- it can be hard to keep track!), Rosie took two turns for Animale, a line designed by Priscilla Darolt.

Although Rosie looked as natural as ever out on the catwalk in Brazil, it had been a while. The British model skipped the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this past year with the explanation "I'm working that day" (on what we don't know) but her angel wings were missed.

It was refreshing seeing Rosie in something other than lingerie, however. Could this be the year she conquers not only the tabloids and the red carpet but high-fashion's runways as well? We think she's up to the challenge.

Plus she's gotta find some way to pay for all those Louboutins.

Check out Rosie's runway return below.
