Rosie Huntington Elle UK

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears Miu Miu while donning a platinum-blonde bobbed wig for the October issue of Elle UK, giving her a totally different look to the blonde bombshell vibe we usually get from her covers.

If it wasn’t for those gorgeous lips, she may have been unrecognisable.

Captured by Mariano Vivanco, the model-turned-actress wears a selection of pieces by Calvin Klein Collection, CĂ©line and Chanel.

Rosie talks to Elle about everything from her relationship with actor Jason Statham to why models need thick skins at the start of their lonely careers.

On her relationship with Jason Statham: ‘Many models are in long-term relationships for stability. Admittedly, not always with great men, but it gives them something to come home to, something grounding. That’s how I see my relationship. Well, I see it in many ways but one of the most beautiful things is that I feel at home whenever I am in the world because of him.’

On starting out as a model: ‘I can see why people think models come across as a little cold. When you start out you’re so young you don’t have a voice. Everyone just tells you what to do and you can end up abroad in the middle of nowhere, with no one speaking English. It is very lonely. …You develop a thick skin to protect yourself. Now I am 26, when I come on a set, I can say what I think and my opinions are noted. I’ve grafted hard to be here.’

You can pick up the October issue of Elle UK featuring Rosie when it hits newsstands on Wednesday.
