First we thought Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was wearing over-the-knee boots at the British Fashion Awards in London on Monday. Then we thought the bottoms could be mini shorts worn with tights.
Once we finally realized those bands of pink and black were attached to her red suit pants, it was too late. We'd already been captivated by her beauty. We were tricked into believing that these insane trousers, which look like something out of a Star Trek movie involving a space horse-riding mission, work on the Transformers star. We'd fallen under the supermodel spell.
It's only after we look away that we're able to honestly assess the situation. These pants are completely ridiculous! They cut up her extra-long legs and flow awkwardly into the shoe. Yes, the plunging neckline created by the fitted red suit jacket is gorgeous, but that doesn't excuse the pants, especially since that very risky top was to blame for a nip slip later that night.
We'll admit that fashion isn't fair. Gorgeous celebs often get away with style murder on the red carpet, which is exactly what's going on here. So let us be the brave souls to say that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's pants are preposterous, but the rest of her looks smokin' hot.
