Rosie Huntington-Whiteley


With over 16 years in the tanning-business James Read has had some extremely high profile clients. We're talking from stunning supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, to household names like Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey, to fabulous singers like Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora. 

So yeah, the man definitely knows what he's doing. While his clientele sounds like a girls night we can only dream about, their tanning routine is very much achievable for us mere mortals. 

Behold the new James Read Tanning Collection. If you're tired of the streaks, the sweating and the waiting around to dry than this new water based collection is for you. Because it's more tan just tan, it's skin care. 

AND it's translucent, so kiss the days of orange, biscuit-y smelling bed sheets goodbye.

“It’s all about striped back tanning. We were the first brand incorporate skin care and tanning," Read says chatting to SHEmazing. “It’s a lifestyle tan it’s much more about products that fit with your lifestyle. You can just spray it on and go out instead of waiting around for it to dry. People want quick and easy." 

But just don't take our word for it, the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley swears by Read's H2O Tan Mist. 

“Rosie Huntington-Whitely keeps it in her fridge in LA and takes it out every time she wants a pick-me-up. 

“It hydrates, it moisturises and tans you. The great thing is you can pop it in a bag, you can do it on a flight, anywhere, like Rosie does." 

Jetting to LA to be central to Oscar red carpet prep is just all in a day's work for Read. To say he's causal about holding some of the world's most seen tans in his hands is an understatement.

“It’s always nice to get a message saying ‘oh so-and-so uses it’ the products.

“I worked with a lot of celebrities in the beginning and it’s so nice to see them grow up. You kind of grow up with people you work with, it’s like anything really. 

“It’s so nice to meet them again and have a catch up.”

Working with all these big names he must have some funny stories? 

"I've had quite a few, dear," he laughs. "But none I can say on tape." 

Thanks to Read's innovative influence, we can most definitely be expecting a boom in water-based tans in the coming year. 

“I’ll read something and  I’ll research things. I’ll look at what’s happening in Korea and China in the world of skin and what’s big in the world of beauty and turn that into tanning.  I try to step outside the box."

It's all about the natural glow. 

“It’s more about someone complimenting your skin than having an overly dark tan," he explains. "It's all about au natural" 

It's not just the world of tanning that Read is noticing a change in, but in the beauty industry as a whole.

“The way women want to be seen is changing as well. Tanning is for everyone, beauty is for everyone, it doesn't matter who you are or what shape for size or colour you are with the proper beauty products everyone can look good.

"I think it’s that confidence I think people are much more about confidence and how they look and feel something now. That inner confidence. If you look good on the outside you feel good on the inside."

Keep going to read Read's step-by-step guide to going from tan virgin to golden goddess. 

Starting out: 

“Go for a gradual tan such as the H20 Tan Mist for the face because you just want it to control it so you just have a little bit of coverage.

"The Sleep Mask is perfect for tan virgins. It's super eay to use, just put it on before you go to bed and it works overnight. If you want it darker than just do it again the next night. 

“Wash off tan is also good for beginners. You can get a perception of how the tan works. You put it on have a little look, see if it looks good and wash it off once you’re happy.

"Take the Coconut Water Tan Mist; you just mist it onto the skin. It doesn't transfer onto your clothes or on your bedding. It dries instantly and you get the most beautiful colour, it just fits naturally with your skin tone.

“The great thing about this coconut spray is that anyone can use it. It fades like a normal and it lasts for ages, like seven to eight days."

Colour control: 

"Overtanning is the worst mistake you can make. Putting too much tan on.

"Also hands and feet. People always put product direct on those areas and it goes too dark. With a tanning mitt put the leftover product from the arms onto the hands and the leftover product from the legs onto the feet and ankles. Keep it quiet natural.

"Avoid washing your hands afterwards as well and with the top lip a good trick is always drink with a straw after you’ve tanned so you don’t get that white topped lip.

"If the tan gets too dark go into a steam room in a gym and it reduces how dark the tan is."

Hard to reach bits: 

"Good tip if you’re doing the back it is to get a wooden spoon and elastic band and tie the tanning glove with the elastic band. Or a mini-paint roller."

For the photo-finish: 

“If you’ve just got your tan done say for a wedding and you’re not quite sure how dark you want to go take a tan selfie with the flash on and that will then let you see how dark your tan is for real so it gives you more of a perception of how your tan is."

Prepping for the pros: 

“Always exfoliate 24 hours before a spray-tan. And always make sure you’ve left your skin for like three to four days before you tan. You want your skin to be fresh like a canvas. You don’t want to keep building up your tan. Don't go for another tan three or four days later when you still hae the other tan on.

"Always exfoliate three to four days after you tan and moisturise daily to make the tan last longer let it fade evenly. Finally, always make sure you have no oil on the skin before you get a spray tan."

Rumour has is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is about to launch her own range of beauty products and we are beyond excited. 

The model turned actress took to Instagram yesterday with a cryptic message announcing something called Rose Inc. 

She also tagged the brand's new Insta page which included the description: "Beauty from the Insider out." 

This isn't the first time the star has dabbled in the world on makeup, with her line of products called Rosie for Autograph currently boasting a loyal following in the UK. 

There's no indication as to what the line will include, though we're hoping Rosie doesn't stray too far from her signature natural look. 

Rosy cheeks, full brows and pretty pastels – we're sold! 

Keep an eye on Rosie's Instagram for more updates. 


Congratulations are in order this afternoon as news rolls in that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham have welcomed their first child.

Taking to social media to pay tribute to their new arrival, 30-year-old Rosie, who announced her pregnancy in February, shared a black and white shot of her hand entwined with her baby son's.

"Our little man arrived! Jack Oscar Statham 8.8lbs on Saturday June 24th," she captioned the post which has racked up more than 76,000 likes.

The Devon-born model, who has been in a relationship with Jason since 2010, has been inundated with messages of congratulations from fans and followers eager to share in the couple's joy.

"Congratulations to you both! It's a magical and tiring time so take this naps beautiful mama," wrote one.

"Congratulations, enjoy every moment. They grow up so fast you won't believe it," added another.

Rosie and 49-year-old Jason, who celebrated their child's impending arrival with a lavish baby shower in May, got engaged in January 2016.



No matter what colour the dress or what statement was trying to be made, gold was totally in when it came to red carpet beauty as seen at the Golden Globes. 

And it lends to the versatility this shade has in terms of makeup as gold-hued eyes were paired with a range of dress and lipstick shades. 

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocked gold from head to toe with her bronzed, gold eyeshadow picking up the tones in her dress. Not to be washed out by too many nude shades, she used warmer brown tones to flush out the eyes. 

Meanwhile, Amber Heard picked up on the pink colours in her ensemble with a very on-trend soft, rose gold inspired eye look. 

Meanwhile Jennifer Lopez rocked a killer, red lip while allowing soft gold hues embrace the eye area with just a lick of mascara. She finished off her look with sun-kissed skin and glittering highlights across the face. 

If the Globes are anything to go by, it would seem that gold is going to be the go-to red carpet statement for our favourite celebrities this awards season. 

All the products you need to go for gold: 

Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette, €4.49, McCabes Pharmacy
Rimmel Sun Shimmer Maxi Bronzer, €9.49, Boots 
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Isolde, €34, Brown Thomas



A huge congratulations is in store for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham. 

The pair are set to tie the knot after five years of dating, their reps have confirmed to E! News.

The blonde bombshell debuted her engagement ring on the Golden Globes red carpet last night, and we have to say, she had the biggest grin plastered on her face. 

The news comes after the 28-year-old model and 48-year-old actor enjoyed a trip to Phuket, Thailand. Over the past few weeks they were looking as loved-up as ever as they were seen hitting the beach and soaking up the sun. 

We just can't wait to see her wedding dress! *Swoon*. 



It's perhaps the most divisive fashion trend of the season – the slip dress.

Wearing lingerie as outerwear has definitely emerged in fashion as a totally appropriate way to dress yourself (and we have all definitely been tempted by a lace bralet or two), but the satin slip dress leaves very little to the imagination. 

So how do you strike the perfect balance between night time chic and a good night's sleep?

Here's how to get it right. 

1. Find the perfect fit 

We all know that the slip dress is supposed to be slinky, but you want it to skim your curves, not cling to them in the wrong places.

Focus on finding a slip that fits well around the bust and that you feel comfortable in. Too big and you will be swamped, too small and you will definitely be susceptible to a nip slip. 

2. Choose the right outerwear

Did we mention that Rihanna lives for a slip dress? From backless gold numbers to slinky floor length pieces, she can't get enough. 

Amp up the glamour by adding a boyfriend blazer, a sequined crop jacket or if you are feeling particularly brave, throw on your best fur coat. 

3. All about the shine 

 Play up the satin quality of your slip dress by choosing a metallic gold, silver or bronze tone.

4. Accessorise 

If you feel a slip dress would make you look tent like rather than the goddess that you are, try out a belt to cinch the waist. 

Team your dress with a pair of strappy stilettos and some decadent jewellery to really add a touch of glamour.

5. Confidence, confidence, confidence

If you are pulling off that slip dress like it's no ones business, then we commend you because this is definitely not the easiest trend of the season. Hold your head high and work it, girl.

All hail H&M! A firm favourite of stylish bargain-hunters, it’s also brought us a decade of affordable designer attire via its celebrated collaborations.

Back in 2004, Karl Lagerfeld got the ball rolling – and since then the likes of Versace, Roberto Cavalli, and Matthew Williamson have all paired-up with the high-street outlet. Last year, Alexander Wang’s sporty offering arrived in stores, predictably sending shoppers into a frenzy.

And H&M this morning was able to confirm that its autumn designer collaboration will be with the Parisian house of Balmain. Hurrah!

We even already have an idea of what the collection will entail – via Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn, who appeared at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night donning sneak-peak pieces.

The models were there alongside Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, the 28-year-old who has since his arrival in 2011 nurtured the fashion house into a global pop-culture phenomenon.

Kendall wore a statement black blazer with white beading detail – very much Olivier’s signature style. Meanwhile, Jourdan opted for a military-feel navy top, similar versions of which have been spotted on the likes of Kim Kardashian. She completed the outfit with a red ruffle skirt and chunky metallic waist belt. Both had on a pair of thigh-high suede boots too.

Celebrity fans of the high-end label include Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Miley Cyrus, and Kim Kardashian.

“I want to talk to my generation − this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain,” the designer said today in response to the announcement.

“The collaboration felt extremely natural to me as H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it,” he added.

“We are excited to have Balmain as our guest designer at H&M,” the clothing company also said in a statement. “With its mix of couture spirit and streetwear attitude, Balmain owns a unique style; opulent and direct, sensual and energetic.”

Balmain is known for its sky-high prices: simple blazers come in at around €1,500, sandals are similarly priced, while a leather embellished mini dress from this season is a cool €8,500.

Although price-points for the forthcoming collaboration have yet to be released, last Novemeber the Alexander Wang collection ranged from €15 for over-the-knee socks, and €30 for a tank top, to €200 for footwear, and €350 for a metallic down jacket.

Available from November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online at hm.com, the Balmain collection will feature clothing and accessories for both ladies and men.




Prepare to be very, very jealous.

27-year-old model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has made a commitment that's pretty much beyond anything we can dream of and we swear we're completely over the moon for her… ahem.

While the rest of us live on instant noodles for a week in order to pay for our latest high-street splurges,  this stunning blonde has splashed out on a mansion worth a whopping $13,000,000 and the Victoria's Secret model is said to be overjoyed with her new pad.

Well, you would be, wouldn't you?

Boasting five bedrooms, eight bathrooms (eight!) and a waterfall swimming pool, the British star certainly made sure no expense was spared when choosing her first home with fellow actor Jason Stratham.

The incredible purchase comes after the couple's fifth anniversary which Rosie marked in the sweetest way with a simple message on Instagram declaring: "You will forever be my always."

Awww, how cute!

But seriously, eight bathrooms?! Where did we go wrong?! 



Was this supermodel the real reason behind Calvin Harris and Rita Ora’s big break-up?!

Calvin Harris dined out with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley the night before he announced his split from Rita on Twitter.

The pair looked very happy and comfortable in each other’s company as they left the Italian restaurant in West Hollywood.

While Rosie has been dating movie action-man and Kelly Brook’s ex Jason Statham, the couple are believed to be going through a rocky patch.

Of all the ladies your ex could take up with – a supermodel?!
