Model-turned-actress… turned-model-again: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley makes dazzling return to the catwalk in Sao Paulo
15:29 GMT, 12 June 2012
Thanks to her role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and her absence from the catwalk, we know Rosie Huntington-Whiteley better now as an actress than a model.
But the British beauty, 25, made a dazzling return to the catwalk today at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where she walked the Animale show.
Though there were several other big-name models on the runway, including Ana Beatriz Barros and Isabel Goulart, she was clearly the star, both opening and closing the show.

Return to the runway: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore several looks at Sao Paulo Fashion Week's Animale show today, the first catwalk she has walked for some time
Miss Huntington-Whiteley, who dates actor Jason Statham, wore several looks, ranging from the romantic to the mimimalist.
She opened the show in a delicate embellished dress with a drop-waist in keeping with next season's Twenties trend, followed by a white silk ensemble with matching ostrich feather bolero.
Subsequent looks were more edgy though, with perforated leather leggings and pencil skirts teamed with sheer sculptural shirts and body-hugging animal prints.
While the collection's 'Eastern European aristocratic
theme' may have failed to impress the industry, Miss Huntington-Whiteley's return to the catwalk has certainly got it buzzing.

Already some are speculating whether
this appearance in Sao Paulo means she will also be walking any of the couture
shows in Paris next week.
The former Victoria's Secret Angel is
certainly in catwalk-ready shape. She is one of the most famous clients
of personal trainer James Duigan, advocate of the celebrity-loved
'Clean and Lean' diet.
And though actress Holly Valance
recently joked that it is little more than lettuce and water, advocates
say it is not draconian, meaning that girls who love their food can
follow it with ease.
