Along with John Lewis and Cocoa Cola, Burberry’s festive advert is fast becoming the marker of the Christmas season and 2015’s is better than ever. Marking the 15th anniversary of Billy Elliot, the high-budget advert features some of the most recogniseable faces from stage and screen.
Michelle Dockery, Naomi Campbell, James Bay, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, James Cordon and Elton John showcase Burberry’s vision in a series of fun, dancing poses against a golden backdrop. The star of the show for the second year running is 13 year old Romeo Beckham who takes centre stage as a modern-day Billy while original cast member Julie Walters adds a touch of nostalgia to the campaign.
Glamour, celebrity siblings (spot the Huntington-Whiteley’s good genes) and a touch of Christmas cheer – it’s a Burberry Christmas all right.
