Why Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Missed The Oscars

Oh, Rosie. You can do no wrong, especially when it comes to your red carpet choices. There is one exception though — when you don't show up! Much to my chagrin, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's 2016 Oscars red carpet appearance didn't happen, and while I'm a bit disappointed, I know the Mad Max: Fury Road star had a good reason why she wasn't there.

According to her latest Instagram photos, Huntington-Whiteley was across the pond for fashion week in Milan. On Saturday evening, she was spotted at the Bulgari event wearing a stunning silver Galvan London jumpsuit with her hair parted in the middle and swept back behind her shoulders. My favorite part about her outfit? Her diamond snake collar necklace, which, of course, was Bulgari. After all, Huntington-Whiteley is the new ambassador for their accessories and eyewear.

Perhaps she was just too lazy to make the long trek back to Los Angeles, or maybe it was the pressure of picking a dress for the big, star-studded event. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to choose a gown for the Oscars as a celebrity, let alone as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I'm picturing designers just throwing gorgeous gowns and diamonds at the 28-year-old celebrity — how does she even decide?! Luckily, she didn't have to deal with all that dress drama this year. But in the past, she has always showed up to Oscar events in style.

In 2015, at the Vanity Fair party, Huntington-Whiteley stunned in a sequined black number.


I would have to say, however, that her powder blue gown from the 2014 Vanity Fair party was her best red carpet look yet.


While she didn't show up to the Vanity Fair party in 2013, she did go to the Chanel pre-Oscar dinner, and stunned in a striped jumpsuit.

And in 2012, she wowed us again in bright red at the Vanity Fair party.

The night is still young, however, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Huntington-Whiteley shows up to an Oscar after party. Here's to hoping!
