Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In "Jimmy Choo"

Take a look at model actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley aka 'The Splendid Angharad' in director George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road", posing for the 2020 "Jimmy Choo" 'In My Choos" resort shoes collection campaign:

Choo was born in Penang, Malaysia, into a family of shoemakers, taught by his father, who made all of his shoes by hand.

He studied in London, England then worked for a design firm after graduation. After nine years working at 2 design companies, Choo's parents moved to Britain to help him get started up in his own business, opening his first shop in 1986, renting out an old hospital building. 

His craftsmanship and designs were soon noticed at 'London Fashion Week' in 1988. 

After seeing Choo's creations, 'Vogue' magazine featured the shoes in an eight page spread. Patronage from 'Diana, Princess of Wales' in the early 1990's further boosted his image.

In 1996, Choo co-founded "Jimmy Choo Ltd" with British Vogue magazine accessories editor Tamara Mellon.
