2010 saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley posing nude for the Pirelli calendar, photographed by Terry Richardson. She then took to the catwalk for Prada in Milan and Giles Deacon in Paris. Among the advertising campaigns for her, were Monsoon, Thomas Wylde, Full Circle and VS Online.

She went on to return to Burberry for their fall/winter 2010 campaign and also for the release of their fragrance, Burberry Body. The revered fashion photographer devoted an entire book to her, entitled Ten Times Rosie. He career continued to progress in 2011, when she landed her first debut cover for British Vogue.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has also had a successful introduction to an acting career, after it was announced that she had been cast in the role of Carly Spencer in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
