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.'
