When Fashion Features Director Rebecca Lowthorpe first encountered Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the bathrooms of ELLE more than a year ago, she was struck dumb by her impossible beauty.

You will be too, in our behind the scenes video of the most mega-watt of England’s roses.

That honey-coloured mane, those pillow-plump lips and vertigo-inducing legs are all the more impressive when seen in motion.

When we first featured Rosie on the cover of ELLE in July 2011 it was the start of a love affair that shows no sign of dimming. Especially when you delve beneath the yoga-honed exterior and discover what makes Rosie tick: in the interview in this month’s issue of ELLE, the two-time ELLE Style Award winner tells Rebecca Lowthorpe about her ‘volcanic’ temperature and the last time she lost it (hint: girl needs her breakfast).

She also shares the details of her new underwear line for Autograph at Marks and Spencer, and hints at her future with action-man Jason Statham.

There are 12 whole pages of RHW in the September issue of the magazine, which goes on sale on Wednesday 1st August. But for now, watch our Behind the Cover video to see why everyone falls for Rosie.
