It may be hard to imagine Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as anything other than a Hollywood bombshell, but when the model-actress debuted way back in 2003, she was an apple-cheeked English rose. While it’s normal to switch up your style as you age, Huntington-Whiteley’s luxurious take on Los Angeles bohemian dressing is the kind of upgrade most only dream of. On the red carpet, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel has made a name for herself by bringing decadent glamour via her vampy selection of Balmain and Versace dresses, but off duty, she’s managed to cultivate a look that is both laid-back and supermodel sexy.

Living in the Hollywood Hills requires a certain nonchalance when it comes to fashion, but Huntington-Whiteley’s nailed the art of well-mixed SoCal staples, pairing her denim cutoffs, lightweight blouses, and a closet full of premium denim with some of the most coveted high-fashion accessories around. Highlights include Chanel’s Camellia booties, the latest Gucci It bags, or Bulgari’s extravagant Tubogas watch. Ever the clever brand ambassador, Huntington-Whiteley works in pieces from her Marks & Spencer label when she can, and typically has on at least one item that even those without a superstar budget can afford. But even when she turns up in something with a modest price point, it’s still the same captivatingly casual sensibility. Whom better to emulate for the end of the summer?
