Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Harper’s Bazaar UK

Posted on December 12, 2011

Darlings, what better way to close out the first day of the work week than by watching someone pretty in the throes of ennui? Let’s all watch Rosie get her Betty Draper on in the 2012 Resort collections. Pop a Miltown and enjoy, darlings.

    She makes every one of those outfits look better than the look book models.

      I was just going to say the same thing! Gorgeous.

        One of those Prada models looks absolutely horse faced, the poor thing.

        Me too.  Gorgeous.  I want to hate her, but it’s all too gorgeous for hate.

          Because she’s a Super-Model.

      Exactly what I was going to say!

    How do you fit into life when you look like that? 

    • http://twitter.com/miribea26 Miriam Cantor-Stone

      Right?! I have never seen anyone look MORE like a Barbie doll. It’s slightly terrifying.

      • Anonymous

        I think she looks like a blowup doll.

        I hate myself for saying that, but it’s all I see!

        • Anonymous

          I was going to comment to say that I think this hair on her totally turns her into a blowup doll (or a mindblowing drag queen). She’s already so very, VERY feminine-looking, with such exaggerated features, that when you give her this hair it just goes over the top. She’s better off with sleeker styles, IMO.

    I really don’t understand how some fashion magazine editors keep their jobs — those who decide, for example, to de-glam Scarlett Johansson instead of basking in her glory when she’s at her height (did any editorial counterpart do that to Marilyn in her heyday? Really?). And here, someone chose to put RH-W in shellacked 1960s hairstyles and stiff clothing when they’ve got the model who embodies the 2010s’ sexy/loose/flowing look.

      I’d be with you if this were, say, the twenties or the forties or the eighties (dear God, if they’d tried to make a flapper out of her…). But it’s not. This may not be her personality, but she’s got the looks for it, and why not play with stuff like this in editorials when you never would in life? Look at that second shot, in the Akris. Her body language, her look: it’s all so perfectly of the era, it’s not even like a shot out of a film. I feel like someone has that photo lying around somewhere in their attic.

      On the other hand, I’m really quite tired of this era.

      Actually, I think it’s an interesting commentary on one type of woman who might wear these clothes.

    What was Prada thinking when they paired that dress with that hiddy scarf and hat??

      agreed. that scarf is so fug.

      I actually laughed out loud when I saw that picture.

      That model in that getup totally reminds me of Amy on “Big Bang Theory.”

        More like Mayim Bialik from her Blossom days.

          Did you see Bialik on What Not to Wear? It was really charming.

          • Anonymous

            Yes!  I loved that she didn’t take the $5,000, but she did take the advice.

        • akprincess72

          Mayim Bialik IS Amy Farrah Fowler on Big Bang Theory & is absolutely awesome in the role.

          • Anonymous

            Yes, I know, I just think the model’s getup looks more like Blossom than Amy Farrah Fowler.

      They were thinking about the 70′s, and the crazy patterns that were king. That one is particularly.. colorful, but still right in line with some of my memories (well, mostly from family albums) of what folks wore.

    Bitch is selling that Prada better than the model getting PAID to sell the Prada.

      And that is the TRUTH. She breathes life into each and every outfit.

  • MilaXX

    Rose give face like no other!

    • Ceur -

      In this case, it’s not a good thing. She should hide her face. That Ferretti picture reminds me why I think she slept with someone to ever be called a model.

  • Anonymous

    I have to be honest: I can’t stand her face. I remember reading an interview with Angelina Jolie years ago where she said she found her own face disproportionate and weird, not appealing. In Rosie whatever-whatever’s case, I can see it.

    Also, can we stop pretending she is anything more than a glorified Victoria’s Secret model?

    • Anonymous

      Thank goodness somebody said this, I’ve been thinking there’s something wrong with me… I cetainly can’t say she’s ugly but I am always annoyed looking at her face. She does wear clothes well though.

      • Anonymous

        I’m right with you.

    • http://twitter.com/lightningvsbug Kallie Markle

      I think the fact that she’s getting editorial spreads in Vogue and Harper’s means that she actually IS more than glorified VS model. And her name is literally at the top of your screen, so the ‘Rosie whatever-whatever’ thing is more than a little transparent.

      • Anonymous

        Lol, are you kidding me? This woman’s only claim to fame is a horrible (by all accounts) Transformers movie. This is all PR smoke and mirrors, and I, for one, am not interested in having to pay attention to her for the same reason I’m not interested in paying attention to the likes of Miley Cyrus. The “whatever-whatever” comment is truly my lack of interest in learning her last names. I doubt I’d need to remember them in a short time anyway.

    That era really seems to be the current go-to method for making an otherwise bland beauty seem compelling. That sounds snarky, but the pictures are gorgeous.

      Good observation. I just scrolled these pictures of this beautiful woman in designer clothing thinking, “Eh, meh, hmm…” all the while trying to figure out whether that is a Palm Springs house. I think I’ve seen her and editorials of this ilk one too many times recently.

    Fabulous.

    Well, except for the trashy tattoo. Yuck.

    I’m sorry fellow bitter kittens, but this editorial just isn’t doing it for me. Of all the things to covet in this spread, I want the house.

    And the Pucci dress.

    Okay FINE: And her tits.

      Of the three, you might be able to afford the tits.

        Okay. When I win that lottery I never play and buy this house, I’ll put that at the top of the list. What the hell, as long as we’re at it, I throw a open house for the bitter kittens on T Lo Lounge night.

    I have no comment on Miss One Expression.  I just had to say that the Prada model looks like a stereotypical movie version of a mental patient.  Was the stylist for that shoot drunk, or high?

    She looks stoned in most of them but I surely love some of the clothes, especially the Dior and everything Fendi.

    i really love that pink pucci dress. actually i think i like the orange better, but still.
    i would say the world was better, or at least funner, in the age of miltown, but i really think what i mean is the age of quaaludes.

    ps. i am surprised about the alberta ferretti. i mean, it looks like you couldve bought it at the broadway–not bullocks, not either magnin but at the broadway c1982.

    I’m pretty sure the Prada model will not be including this picture in her portfolio.

    Gimme, gimme, yah, yah, yah!  love every single one of those looks.

    I love the clothes, but this shoot does nothing for me. There have been so many mid-century bored-beautiful-wealthy white woman shoots, and this one offers absolutely nothing that a million others haven’t already given us (and a lot of them did it better).

    Ms Huntington-Whiteley wears clothes very well and has some outstanding bone structure, but for me she has a total lack of presence. She doesn’t even really look bored; she looks vapid, and her one facial expression wears thin.

    Yeh it’s great, but i’m really bored of that location though.

    Amber Valetta did a shoot with a similar mid-century theme, but with a twist (and much better in my opinion).

    I can’t get tired of this era they’re evoking, since these are pretty much my formative life images. (not what my life really looked like, middle class suburbs in Connecticut, North Carolina & Minnesota not really having this look) but what the magazines & advertising were showing me.

    On the other hand, I don’t find it all that exciting.  She is very pretty. The clothes would not look nearly so good on mere mortals.

    I was under-whelmed by these pictures.  I like the Pucci dress.  She looks so dead-eyed in the Prada picture.

    All I can really say is she looks so much better with big hair.  Still unsufferably dull and dead in the eyes but better proportions with her bone structure.
