Rosie Huntington-Whiteley made a return to the runway yesterday at Balmain's Spring Summer 2014 show in Paris. The 26-year-old closed the catwalk presentation, which was held at the Grand Hotel Intercontinental, showcasing two Balmain looks - a white quilted skirt with silver chainmail top and a cream gold buttoned skirt with matching bomber jacket - teamed with Balmain's signature sexy ankle booties in monochrome and gold.
The former Victoria's Secret Angel, who's dating actor Jason Statham, shared behind the scenes photos from the show including a pic of herself with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing. She tweeted, "Closing the show for Balmain today. What an honor! Thank you Olivier Rousteing #TeamBalmain #parisfashionweek". She also posted a snap of fellow models and 'Balmain babes' Karlie Kloss and Toni Garrn posing with hairstylist Sam Mcknight.

For the show itself Rosie and was given a minimalist makeup look, which is a far cry from the glamorous and glossy style we're used to seeing on the Devonshire-born goddess. Embracing the natural look of the season, make-up supremo Tom Pecheux sent supermodels Rosie, Toni, Georgia May Jagger, Edie Campbell and co down the runway virtually slap-free with nothing but a little dab of concealer where it was needed. In RHW's case we doubt it really was.
In a recent interview with Grazia she told us about her "clean and balanced diet", explaining "I put all my superfoods and supplements into my juice and I have that first thing. I drink two litres of water when I wake up and try to do four litres a day." Now if that's not a recipe for healthy glowing skin, we don't know what is!
Rosie career transition in recent years, starring in the Transformers franchise and creating a successful lingerie range for Marks & Spencers. She revealed, "I'm driven, I'm a grafter. I've been doing this for 10 years and I watch everybody else's career around me. I listen. I look at women a bit older than me - Gisele Bundchen, Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum and Jo Malone, women who have become global brands - and I pay attention. Whenever I've had a really clear idea about what I've wanted, I've been able to picture it happening. It's that self-fulfilling prophecy thing. I know where I want to be in 10 years time. I wouldn't let on, but I know the things I'd like to be doing."
