Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: 'High heels make me feel powerful'

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley feels "powerful" whenever she slips into a pair of high heels.

The British model has been tapped to star in the latest images for Jimmy Choo's In My Choos editorial series - titled Destination Party - with the photos showing her wearing designs from the luxury footwear label's cruise 2020 collection.

In an interview accompanying the new campaign, Rosie discussed how different shoes can affect her mood and noted that she rarely wears flats because they don't make her feel empowered.

"When I want to feel powerful for sure I'm always going to pick a heel. But I think you know, for a really sexy event shoe, it will probably be something patent," she explained. "You'll rarely see me in flats, because the way I feel when I'm in heels - whether it's a more edgy biker-style look, or something more feminine and ballet-inspired - is just so empowered. I feel ready for the day in every way."

Rosie sticks to "pretty simple outfits" so she can wear an extravagant shoe, and her golden rule when it comes to dressing up for black-tie events, or a red carpet premiere with her fiance Jason Statham, is to start with her footwear.

"I'm inherently a jeans and T-shirt or leather pants and a great blouse girl. But I always take a risk with shoes and I think that's where you can add a little bit of fun, texture, colour, and sparkle. I also find shoes to be really transformative in terms of my mood," the 32-year-old shared. "A classic little black dress with a great shoe will get you out the door - no matter what the event: black tie, cocktail, dinner, you'll be sorted."
