The stars of the new Burberry campaign are as close as you can get to British royalty without enlisting the Queen herself. Sir Elton John, Naomi Campbell, Romeo Beckham and more star in the iconic brand’s holiday ads, which feature the annual festive gifts collection.
The campaign, lensed by Mario Testino, includes still photographs and a three-minute video, Burberry Festive Film, commemorating the 15th anniversary of British dance drama Billy Elliot. Each ad pays homage to the movie by recreating the iconic opening jump scene.
The ridiculously good-looking cast also includes James Corden, Michelle Dockery, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and brother Toby, Julie Walters, James Bay and George Ezra. Fun fact: Walters appeared in Billy Elliot as his ballet teacher, Mrs. Wilkinson, and Sir Elton John wrote the score for Billy Elliot: The Musical. The ad debuts today at an exclusive fête at Burberry’s London flagship store.
How long until everyone’s recreating these ads on social media? If only we could all jump as effortlessly as Naomi Campbell.
