Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stuns in Burberry at the Transformers 3 London premiere.

She may be heating up Hollywood with her leading-lady role in Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, but model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hasn't forgotten her British roots.

The full-lipped stunner wore a slinky midnight blue custom-made Burberry gown for the film's June 26 London premiere, sparking more speculation about her future with the brand.

"Rosie has an effortless beauty and an incredible body," Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey says in a press statement. "She has been part of the Burberry family since she was 17 and we are enormously proud of her success. We are working on something exciting together which we will be announcing soon."

Already the face of Burberry Beauty (which she relied on for her red-carpet beauty look), the model has been teasing that she and Bailey have a major project in the works, though it's still anyone's guess as to what that could be.

The brand's focus on a dynamic monthly campaign with a rotating cast of characters would suggest that a solo Rosie campaign is unlikely. Still, Bailey is known for thinking outside of the box—see his Keane partnership in Beijing—so anything's possible. Perhaps she's collaborating on a design or collection. (One can only hope.)

Whatever the big announcement is, there's no doubt that Burberry has found a foxy muse in Huntington-Whiteley. After hitting the red carpet in her plunging, Old Hollywood-style gown with a crystal-studded halter, she changed into the label's gold-studded white cocktail dress and lace-up tan suede heels. Lucky girl!
