Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – face of Marks & Spencer's current Autograph campaign (along with gorgeous Hollywood hunk Ryan Reynolds) was in Paris yesterday to help celebrate the opening of the Brit brand's newest store, which marked the return of M&S to France after a 10-year absence.
Rosie sported two looks in Paris as she helped to launch the new three-storey shop. For the press conference, the Transformers star wore a black bustier-style top with a peplum and lace sleeve details, while for the red-carpet opening, the face of the Autograph collection chose a monochrome long-sleeved shift dress, accessorised with black Christian Louboutin stilettos.
The closure of M&S’s stores in France a decade ago sparked street protests, while ex-pat shoppers rushed to stock up on British products, so the new store on the famed Champs-Élysées is a welcome return – and there’s even a new French website as well, so French customers can shop in euros!
