She has seen her career as a model go from strength to strength over the past few years.
And now, the hard work has paid off for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as it is revealed she has made it onto the Sunday Times Rich List in the under 30s category with a fortune of 5m.
The 25-year-old model, who recently made the move to Los Angeles, started out on the Victoria's Secret runway in 2006, before she was drafted in by Burberry's Christopher Bailey to replace Agyness Deyn for the label's spring/summer 2008 campaign.

Since then, the Plymouth-born model's star has continued its upwards trajectory, seeing Rosie signed up as the face of Marks & Spencer's Autograph collection, further campaigns for Burberry including its multimedia fragrance campaign for Burberry Body.
There have been stints on the runway at Prada and Giles, and countless magazine covers including Vogue, LOVE, GQ and Harper's Bazaar.
She also made her acting debut, with a
role playing Carly Spencer in the 2011 film Transformers 3: Dark of the
Moon, taking over from Megan Fox as the female lead after making an
impact on the movie's director Michael Bay when they shot a Victoria's
Secret advertisment together.
Mass appeal: Rosie was voted top style icon at the Elle Style Awards earlier this year
And earlier this year, she was named number one style icon at the Elle Style Awards.
Indeed, such is Rosie's appeal that photographer Rankin devoted a book to the model named Ten Times Rosie.
He said that she had 'put the
diversity back into fashion': 'We’ve been
looking at very, very skinny, almost masculine girls for a long time.
She really is the model of the moment. She’s the actress of the
moment. She’s definitely going to become something much, much bigger.'

Rosie is ranked 9th in the list, on
equal footing with 24-year-old singer and judge on BBC show The Voice
Jessie J and Girls Aloud's Sara Harding.
She joins fellow models Devon-born Lily Cole, worth 8m, and Russian-born, UK-based Natalia Vodianova, worth a cool 16m, on the list.
