Coincidentally, Emma was dropped from Burberry around the same time her new hair debuted, and replaced by Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who also replaced Megan Fox in the upcoming Transformers movie (professional bumper anyone?). Rosie has already appeared in Burberry's Winter 08/09 campaigns with gorgeous actor Sam Riley, and is also appearing in Burberry's first beauty campaigns with Lily Donaldson and Nina Porter.

Rosie looks fantastic in the upcoming campaigns, but it's a shame: with Burberry being a classic British brand with overarching inspiration from mod style, they could've done wonders with Emma's quintessential 60's look.
