Legs eleven: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showed off her long slim legs in a mini dress as she dined out with boyfriend Jason Statham and his mother in Malibu earlier today
It was only a casual lunch out with her boyfriend and mother-in-law, but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley still managed to look like she'd stepped off the catwalk in an ultra short mini dress today.
The British model looked stunning in the clinging taupe number which ended mid-thigh as she dined out with her actor boyfriend Jason Statham.
They were joined by his mother Eileen for lunch near their home in the exclusive seaside enclave of Malibu.

Oversized sunglasses, biscuit coloured scarf, black low slung studded belt and grey mid heeled boots completed the look.
She looked relaxed in minimalist make-up as she joined the 44-year-old actor, who wore a more casual outfit of grey sweatshirt and baggy trousers.
The model developed a more public profile after appearing as Carly Spencer in last year's smash, hit film Transformers: Dark of the Moon where she made her acting début.

She told Australia's Cleo magazine about the role: 'At first I was so nervous and I’d be totally lying if I said that I didn’t feel anxious about the whole thing (starring in Transformers: Dark of the Moon).
'I’d never thought that I was ever going to make a film this huge, and when I was cast, I didn’t even realise what I was casting for.'
But she insisted she has a strong work ethic, adding: 'My mother always said to me as a child, 'Life doesn’t hand you opportunity. People don’t hand you great things sitting around on your a**.'
