We can't get enough of Suki Waterhouse right now. Whether she's showcasing that signature '60s style in a sweet shift dress and artfully-dishevelled hair, snuggling up with Bradley 'Hollywood Hunk' Cooper or larking about with her BFF Cara Delevingne, the girl is keeping us highly entertained. Not only that but she's been expertly striking a pose or two as well.
Just last week, we were chatting to the model-slash-actress about being part of the Burberry crew (jeals) and today, we've got an exclusive look at her as the new face of Forever 21. Images from the brand's Holiday campaign have just landed starring Suki's edgy cool as she goes into full rock chick mode.
Described by the lady herself as '2001: A Space Odyssey', the shoot sees her kneeling on the floor in a pair of skin-tight Beetlejuice-esque trousers teamed with a leopard print shirt and topped off with a mega quiff. Another shot has her going disco in a shimmering multi-coloured sweather with glistening gold skirt and metallic leggings. She also works a touch of boho magic too, looking rather Sienna-like in a shaggy ivory jacket and delicate cream slip, accessorised with layers of bangles. 'It was kind of like Almost Famous,' says Suki of the outfit.

Suki joins the likes of Charlotte Free, Sky Ferreira and Atlanta de Cadenet-Taylor as part of Forever 21's super-cool gang stars so what is it she loves most about the brand? 'It’s easy. It’s funky. I think it has a unique style that’s very street fashion-based and that’s what we’re all after. We want to look cool when we’re walking down the street.' Too true.
As for the star's top tip for the party season, she'll be wearing 'these Christmas earrings with little baubles that light up,' Suki tells us. 'I’ve seen some shoes recently that light up. And a red scrunchie.' (Suki asserts that she's all about the scrunchies and frilly socks, FYI). As for novelty holiday sweaters, she's more than willing to inject a little fun into her wardrobe come the festive season. 'I actually just bought a Flash Gordon one,' she says. In fact, this girl can do it all, as the Forever 21 images prove. Suki sums up her style as an eclectic mix of 'kind of Alice in Wonderland, mod, skater, club kid' and hails Rod Stewart as her style icon.
Of course, Suki has also been working her acting chops and we're set to see her in Love, Rosie next year. 'It’s set in 2002, so we’re wearing crop tops and flared jeans, so it’s all quite Britney, which was really fun,' she says of the film, which also stars Lily Collins. 'I’d love to do another film. Fingers crossed!'
In the meantime, you can see her in action on the Forever 21 shoot above...
