Model and movie star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hasn't always led such a glamorous life.

The Transformers star, who lives in LA with actor boyfriend Jason Statham, says she used to shop for bargains in charity shops.

‘British girls love a good vintage find,' says Rosie, 25.

‘Before I was modelling that's what I could afford. I would go through charity shops to find things.

‘I love how it tells a story. You look at these exquisite pieces like art and wonder where this was or who was in this 50, 60 years ago. It's very romantic.'

Rosie has designed a successful range of lingerie for Marks & Spencer and she's loved the experience.

‘It's been exciting and fulfilling,' she tells the Daily Star.

‘Much more than I thought. I'd always wanted to design - it's why I got into modelling - but I love going up to the headquarters and learning, learning, learning.

‘I know lingerie because I've worn it professionally for 10 years. I've learnt how women's bodies work, I've learnt how my body works.'
