The British supermodel’s feed is a masterclass in minimalist dressing and filled with great shoe snaps of her impressive collection of Yeezy sneakers, Bottega sandals, and her own designs for Gia.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is high up on our list of people to follow and not just because she’s a famous supermodel, but because she has simultaneously been making a name for herself as one of Instagram’s favorite tastemakers in the last few years. 

Her feed is a masterclass in elegant, minimalist dressing – think calming, neutral color palettes, perfectly oversized shirts, Toteme outerwear, and of course one of the most enviable shoe collections on the Internet. 

Huntington-Whiteley pulls off a pair of the latest Yeezy sneakers one day, while the next she is posing in a pair of fierce Saint Laurent knee-high boots or Amina Muaddi Begum pumps – always paired with her signature, tonal ensembles. 

Casually sharing daily selfies snapped in front of her bathroom mirror and often recycling the same wardrobe classics – in the shoe department that usually means square-toe sandals, chunky boots, or monochrome sneakers – her approach is straight-forward and full of practical tips anyone can adopt. 

As of late she’s also been building on the popularity of her elegant Instagram feed, by taking on design collaborations and giving her fashion audience the opportunity to directly access her style. She has already released two sell-out shoe capsules with Italian label-of-the-moment Gia and there’s another one on the way for spring 2022. 

Staying true to her modernist flair, Huntington-Whiteley worked with shoe maverick Gia Borghini to design the perfect over-the-knee flat boot in buttery cream and black leather; go-to chunky summer sandals; and square-toe sandals featuring unique heels made of wood. 

Her upcoming spring 2022 capsule references her love of interiors even further, with sandals and mules featuring details made out of jade or quartz crystals. They were all handpicked to mirror the soft, feel-good pastels and neutrals in the model’s own home. 

Make sure you press follow, to take a closer peak at her upcoming Gia designs and get inspired by her dreamy home decor.
