Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is preparing for her looks to fade.

The 'Victoria's Secret' angel sees modelling as a ''short-lived'' career and is already making plans for her retirement from the industry.

She told Industrie magazine: ''I realised early on nothing lasts for ever, especially as a model - you have to build something for yourself from it. Looks go and you fade. Modelling is short-lived.''

Rosie, 27 - who made her acting debut in the 2011 blockbuster 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' - also designs her own underwear range for M&S's Autograph line and is working towards establishing herself as a long-lasting ''brand''

She explained: ''I wanted something for when I want to take a back seat. There'll be a brand that I'll be sitting at the helm of and enjoying. This is really the start of something I see as a long-term thing.''

However, the stunning blonde - who has been in a relationship with actor Jason Statham since 2010 - is keen to keep her working and personal lives separate.

She said: ''I see my career as work. I don't see it as a lifestyle.''
