Rosie Huntington Whiteley nude for Burberry – hot or what were they thinking?

Transformers beauty Rosie Huntington Whiteley stars in new ads for Burberry shot by Mario Testino in which her naughty bits are barely covered by one of their famous gorgeous trench coats. At first glance I thought this was an ad for the clothes, and I found it strange that they would do a clothing ad in which the focus is on the model’s body, not the clothes. This is an ad for Burberry perfume though, and they’re selling some vague idea of beauty, youth and sexiness, somehow attainable through scent. So in that respect I suppose this is a decent ad that is sure to get a lot of buzz. We’re talking about it after all.

Rosie is the “Burberry Body,” and all they have to go along with this announcement is a statement from Whiteley about how it’s an “honor” and a “compliment” and a scant few multimedia bits. There’s this bizarre 4 seconds long video in which it looks like Rosie is going to great pains to move her head to the side. I’m being serious, watch the video.

And there’s this announcement where she declares herself the “Burberry Body.” It’s all of 10 seconds.

I guess she’s a good choice in that she’s in a huge summer movie and is the next “it” girl. She’s also shown some really gorgeous fashion while premiering T3 this summer. USA Today has a slideshow interview with Rosie in which she talks about her premiere dresses and she says “I’ve been very lucky, designers have been very kind to me.” She said of the cobalt blue Burberry number that Kaiser loved that “We collaborated on it. I loved that one.”

Rosie is so lovely that she can sell anything. I don’t think we need to see half her body for a perfume ad, but that’s just me. If she wasn’t baring so much we wouldn’t be talking about her now would we?

Here’s Rosie outside her car yesterday. JustJared says she’s wearing Burberry. She’s so pretty even without makeup. There’s something awkward about her though, like she’s a teen who just went through a growth spurt. She’s all of 24.

    She looks normal in the lower shots, when she isn’t posing.
    When she poses she goes into autobot mode and looks horrible. Doesn’t matter if she is a model and has a good body, she looks so fake that it’s grotesque.

  2. Stubbylove says:

    Fully aware of the fundamental “sex sells” marketing strategy but I swear to God if I see one more photo-shopped, void-eyed, lying down, arched back, legs in the air bitch in an ad pictorial I’m going to cut a MF.

  3. ElleGin says:

    She is pretty, and seems like a really nice girl, but just a bad actress lol.

  4. CallieTrichid says:

    She looks much more attractive without make-up.

  5. MissilePanda says:

    I’ve seen more meat on a butchers pencil

  6. ladybert62 says:

    Personally, I dont think she is pretty. And yes, sex sells anything – even stinking perfume (I am allergic to them all so in my opinion they all stink!)

  7. esblondie says:

    Ok, I’m already sick of this bitch.

  8. katnip says:

    Can any of them do a sexy shoot without taking off their clothes.

    So tired of the same old same old.

    but hey I guess it is not marketed to me..

  9. jamminatorr says:

    @ Stubbylove

    You actually made me LOL in the middle of my office at that. That comment is golden.

  10. Sue says:

    Sex sells nothing new Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Christina Aguilera, Eva Mendes, Mariah Carey and Khloe and Lamar many more have all gone nude for a perfume ad.

  11. Blue says:

    I don’t like her when she’s posing. She looks so dull, fake and robotic, but when she’s interviewing and stuff she’s more animated and likable.

  12. Alexandra says:

    @Stubbylove: I love you! You totally made my day, thank you.

  13. Leprechaun says:

    Beautiful body but my God what a butterface!

  14. The Bobster says:

    I don’t like her face at all. Fortunately, there are paper bags.

  15. Truthful says:

    meh, not all that..

    its been done before.

  16. jover says:

    Burberry has done recent ads with fully clothed male and female models that were classy and striking – why are they taking this route?

  17. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Transformers “beauty”?


  18. Eleonor says:

    Her upper lip still scares me..

  19. bugsy says:

    I think she’s quite gorgeous, but I agree with whoever said that she’s already starting to get on their nerves. She’s just annoying somehow. Can’t figure out why.

  20. california angel says:

    HAHAHAHAHA! lol! stubby love speaking the truth! awesome: ) How is it that she always has different colored eyes and her lips keep getting bigger? In transformers they, like, took up the whole shot by the end hehe. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hatin’ she is beautiful, but I like her better without all the makeup and fake contacts and body oil.

  21. gee says:

    @Stubby Love – LOL You made my afternoon. I agreeeeeee

  22. Gossip Owl says:

    I don’t like her. She just looks so vacant.

  23. wtf? says:

    her 15 minutes was over an hour ago

    I agree same o same o same o

    If they had a ‘comment of the day’option on this site this would be my pick.

    Put another way: “I’ll drink to that!”

  25. Kim says:

    Sorry dont get it – she looks like she has been punched in the mouth repeatedly. I think men find her attractive but not women? Every woman i have asked thinks she is very ugly so i am thinking maybe only men find her attractive.

    Anyone dating the tool, Statham, she dates cant be to intelligent.

    Ruffian9 – Ill drink to that also!

  26. Shannon says:

    Yawn. It’s so safe, in a blow up doll kind of way.

  27. Alipop says:

    she looks like a mix of Cameron Diaz and Juliette Lewis

  28. Cherry says:

    What’s with the ‘I am the Burberry body’? WTF does that mean? She cannot even be qualified as a person, she’s just a ‘body’? I remember times when models where considered to be ‘the face’ of a brand. I guess they don’t even bother hiding what it’s really about anymore now, do they?
    Apart from all of this, ITA with 2. Stubbylove. This is one tacky ad.

  29. ANON says:

    And in the “fly on the wall” Category… Rosie and Statham….

  30. sara says:

    She’s a natural beauty, looks much better and younger without makeup.
    I like her nose, I’m tired of thin, bony hollywood noses.

  31. Doom Radar says:

    The word you are searching for is HERMAPHRODITE. It becomes apparent when you notice something is funny and awry when you’re looking at the pictures but you can’t quite see what it is on a conscious level.

  32. c says:

    Funny that Cam Diaz look alike comment. Cause I was watching transformers the other day and thought they just brought in a Cam Diaz lifeless waxwork. Could not even understand I word she was saying.
    But Transformers = Sexiest girl of the year.
