Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Dermot O’Leary – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 14 February 2012 (Valentine’s Day)

14 Feb

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – the 24-year old lingerie model and actress has been named as the Style Icon of the Year at the Elle Style Awards.

The awards ceremony was held last night at the Savoy Hotel in London and as you might expect all of the attendees really pulled out the style stops with their outfits for the evening. Rosie wore a silver and nude dress designed by Antonio Beradi, who is also a favourite designer of Florence Welch (who won the award for Best Music Act), Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce and Kate Bosworth.

5ft 9in Rosie has worked as a model for Victoria’s Secret lingerie collections as well as other modelling work for Burberry. She has also posed nude for the 2010 Pirelli calendar although she is probably best known in the UK for her role as Carly Spencer in the 2011 movie “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

Rosie is currently going out with Jason Statham having previously dated Olivier Martinez and Ronnie Wood’s son Tyrone.

Other award winners on the evening included Best Actress for Michelle Williams, Best Actor for Eddie Redmayne, Best TV Star for Christina Hendricks (she would have also have won Best Cleavage if that was a category!), International Designer of the Year for Sarah Burton and Best Model for Isabeli Fontana another previous Victoria’s Secret model.

Dermot O’Leary – the X Factor presenter has been named as women’s top Valentine choice.

Freeview, the digital tv company,  asked 2000 people who they would most like to be their tv Valentine and 14% of women picked Dermot as the man they wanted to come home to. He ended up with over double the votes of second-placed Benedict Cumberbatch who of course plays Sherlock on tv. Coming in 3rd place is Strictly winner McFly’s drummer Harry Judd. X Factor men did rather well in the poll as Dermot’s boss Simon Cowell ended up in 7th place.

Any women hoping that Dermot might actually turn up for their Valentine’s Day date are going to be unlucky as he has just got engaged to long-term girlfriend Dee Koppang as announced on the X Factor at the end of last year.

In the poll for men’s top Valentine date another tv presenter triumphed with Holly Willoughby coming out a strong winner. She managed to get 16% of the votes which is a good sign for her new Surprise Surprise series as it probably means it will attract a good number of male viewers. Dr Who sidekick Karen Gillan came in 2nd in the poll with more good news for Simon Cowell as Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack secured 3rd place.

A spokesperson for Freeview said of the poll: “It’s clear TV presenters provide an extra reason to tune in and watch TV and a candlelit dinner at home and watching a romantic film is the perfect Valentine’s Day date – it’s easier on the pocket than a trip out to the cinema or to a restaurant.”

There is a nice link between the two winners of the top Valentine’s Day date as Dermot O’Leary was an usher at Holly Willoughby’s wedding at Amberley Castle in August 2007.
