Inspired by Billie Elliot, Burberry has launched its festive 2015 campaign starring an all-star British cast of models, actors and musicians. In addition to still images starring Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Romeo Beckham and James Bay photographed by Mario Testino; Sir Elton John, Michelle Dockery and Julie Walters will also appear in a Christmas-themed film. There are plenty of trench coats, glitter and nut-cracker style uniforms ahead.
Burberry’s Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey says about the campaign, “Billy Elliot is an incredible film full of so much joy and energy, so it was a real thrill and a great honor to be able to celebrate its 15 year anniversary through our Festive campaign. It was also a huge privilege to work with such amazing and iconic British talent – the cast are quite simply some of the biggest names in film, music and fashion and it was so much fun working with them all to make this special film.”
