British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was first known in the fashion world as a Victoria's Secret Angel and became famous for conquering the catwalks, but few people know that she launched the cosmetics line Rose Inc., and has also pursued a career as an actress. Now, the model is expanding her repetoire designing her first shoe collection.

The styles were developed in conjunction with Gia Couture Firenze, a brand that specializes in women's shoes. The collection features four exclusive designs, each handcrafted by Italian artisans in Florence. Perfect for a spring or summer wardrobe, only natural materials were used for the production, like tree roots, suede, and woven leather. Each model comes in a variety of colors, from basic white and black to bright yellow, green, and brown. The capsule resembles Bottega Veneta'spopular minimalist footwear with square toes on sandals in natural-looking textures.

The British model's large Instagram following and her frequent inclusion in style round-ups is a testament to her status as a style authority. She not only knows how to curate a wardrobe, but how to make the pieces look fresh every time. 

Unveiling her first shoe collection on Instagram, the model shared a picture of herself wearing a long-sleeve white knit dress with an open shoulder. She completed the look wearing a gold chain, chunky ring, and her new square-toed sandals.
