It's got something to do with being Internet obsessed

While it’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s M.O. to look totally and completely effortless at all times, it turns out brilliant outfit ideas don’t just happen magically for her. She gets stumped for inspiration too, just like the rest of us girls standing in front of our closet asking something to speak to us. And when she does need a dose of inspo, she does what millions of women do: She turns to the Internet for help.

“When I’m stuck for outfit ideas, I go on Pinterest and I search for things on Instagram,” the 28-year-old model and actress told PeopleStyle. “People are always surprised to hear that. But I love to look at bloggers and stylists. I put together Pinterest boards of all different outfit ideas and of my style icons. My main style icon is [Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief] Emmanuelle Alt, so I’m always researching her because she really inspires me.”

Huntington-Whiteley even has the Pinterest app on her phone and uses it on the reg. “If I’m having one of those mornings where I don’t know what to wear, I’ll take a quick look at it and get some ideas to reinvent some items in my wardrobe and pull together an outfit really quickly,” she said.

And that’s not the only Real Girl Next Door quality she’s got. She’s an Ugg Australia boot wearer, too. Just last week it was announced that she joined the brand as its first-ever global ambassador. “I’m a model, so I love to wear high heels, but I also love to be comfortable in my free days,” she said. “Ugg boots have been part of my closet and part of my wardrobe for 13 years now, since I bought my first pair. The brand really represents my off-duty style. That’s a side of my personality people don’t get to see that often.”

So, she loves Pinterest and cozy shoes — we are basically the same person, right? But then you see pictures like this, and remember, oh, yeah…maybe not.
