Rosalie Cullen was saved by Carlisle Cullen when she was take to his home after being  left in the street by a man that she loved and hoped to marry, and  his drunken friends. Carlisle found her, and turned her into a vampire rather than see her die.  Carlisle brought Rosalie into the Cullen family in hopes that Edward would see her and would find love.   This type of pairing never happened for Rosalie and Edward.  Rosalie's “talent” was her “beauty and 'pig-headedness'” as Edward put it. “Rosalie’s true defining personal trait is her beauty.  Like Emmett’s strength–they’re both more intensely physical than intellectual, which makes them a perfect match.”  Even though Rosalie is very beautiful and Edward showed no desire for her, it would come in very handy as a hunter of men.

I don't want to give away in spoilers, but when a person becomes a vampire in the Twilight series, all aspects of their human selves are heightened and improved. For example, Jasper can now, as a vampire, control people's emotions because as a human he was very charismatic. In Rosalie's case, she was by far one of the most beautiful human women, and now as a vampire, she is even more exquisite.  She is certainly stronger and faster, but she does not have the same sort of super power as Edward, Emmett, Alice, and Jasper. Her super power is her super beauty.
