Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has 'always' bought saucy underwear

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has "always" bought saucy underwear.

The 29-year-old model - who has collaborated with the longstanding retail store Marks and Spencer on her own fashion range Rosie for Autograph for almost five years and stars in the brands lingerie campaigns - has admitted she often purchased lace underwear and slinky nightwear even when she was younger.

Speaking about her shopping habits, the blonde beauty - who is currently dating Hollywood hunk Jason Statham - said: "Since I was young, I've always bought vintage night-slips and lace boleros.

And the 'Mad Max: Fury Road' actress - who has modelled for lingerie giant Agent Provocateur as well as designer fashion houses Burberry and Roberto Cavalli - has revealed popular retailer Marks and Spencer has always held a tender place in her heart because it was the company she bought her first bra.

She explained: "Marks and Spencer is this iconic British high-street store that everybody in the UK has some form of connection with. My mum took me bra shopping there for the first time as a teenager."

Meanwhile Rosie - who signed to Victoria's Secrets in 2006 - has admitted she has "always" been eager to work, but she now finds working behind the cameras and playing a part in the creative processes of her fashion and beauty capsules more "fulfilling".

Speaking to Harpers Bazaar, the entrepreneur said: "I've always wanted to work.

"I've always wanted to be independent. In life, you get these opportunities and then you have to work really hard, you have to show up, you have to be professional and you have to make something of the opportunity rather than squandering it.

"I've worked for lingerie brands since I was 17.

"Modelling has been so good to me and I've been incredibly lucky, but now being on set is the least fulfilling part. What I really love is rolling my sleeves up, being in those design meetings, going to the business meetings, creating a brand from grass roots, being able to have input and a say, and offering my advice and my opinion on things."
