Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was inspired by another British beauty for her look last night at the L.A. premiere of “The Meg,” where the supermodel supported her fiancé, action film star Jason Statham. The 31-year-old, who wowed in a stunning black Stella McCartney dress, shared that she was channeling Elizabeth Hurley at the 1994 premiere of “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” where she wore a plunging black Versace safety-pin gown alongside former flame Hugh Grant.
The racy red carpet outfit was a statement-making one that had people talking in the ’90s and clearly still resonates with people today. And while the former Victoria’s Secret Angel certainly made it her own, it’s not hard to see where she drew her influence from.

The model-entrepreneur, who became a mother for the first time in June, made waves in a slinky black curve-hugging number, which she paired with celeb-favorite Jimmy Choo Minny sandals in black leather.
She accessorized with bold jewelry that included gold and diamond drop earrings and an assortment of bangles on both wrists. “Fiancé’s Hollywood movie Premier vibes,” Huntington-Whiteley wrote over a snap of Hurley’s Versace design posted to her Instagram Story.
