Rosie Huntington-whiteley - Rosie Huntington-whiteley's Design Ambitions

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always wanted to be a fashion designer.

The actress-and-model says she had ambitions to go to college to study design but got ''swept away'' by the modelling world and decided to go for it as she thought being a model may help her ultimate designing goal.

She said: ''I always wanted to go to fashion college. I got diverted. I got swept away to model and I thought: 'Well it will at least give me some experience within the industry and I'll hopefully get to work different designers from all over the world - which is what I managed to do.' ''

Rosie, 25, recently created her debut underwear collection for Autograph at British high street chain Marks & Spencer and says she felt it was the right step to take.

She told vogue.co.uk: ''From very early on in my modelling career it became apparent to me that it wasn't going to be forever, you have a shelf life. I wanted to make sure I had some form of security that didn't just depend on my appearance. I wanted to use my brain, explore it in different ways and try new things.''
