The evening showed just how in love the couple are, Rosie clearly proud of her boyfriend tweeting pictures live from the red carpet. Check out the adorable couple in our gallery from the premiere below!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been seen out and about enjoying the Malibu sunshine lately and has now taken the beachy lifestyle one step further, with her hair. Gradually lightening the colour over recent months to a brighter blonde, the British model was seen out this week wearing a noticeably shorter style with tousled surf style waves. We love this fresh new look on her and it makes the perfect low to no maintenance summer style. Encourage some natural movement in your own hair by applying a surf spray like Bumble and Bumble surf spray (£20.50) to damp hair before allowing the hair to air dry. Blonde shampoos will help to enhance the natural highlights in your hair, while purple toned shampoos like Lee Stafford bleach blonde shampoo (£11.95) will neutralise yellow or brassy tones in blonde hair. Shop a selection of our favourite blonde hair shampoos below.
