With Christmas only eight weeks away, Burberry are kicking off the festive season with a star-studded campaign headed by Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Michelle Dockery, Julie Walters, Elton John and the Beckham's second son Romeo Beckham.

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the much-loved classic Billy Elliott, the video is inspired by the magic and dancing spirit of the original film.

Directed by Christopher Bailey, the advert aims to get us in the festive mood, with the models donning seasonal Burberry trenches, cashmere scarves and the infamous AW15 runway monogrammed scarves, each marked with their initials.

Starring an all-British cast, the campaign also marks Julie Walters' first campaign for the brand, after playing Billy’s ballet teacher in the original film.

The advert also features Sir Elton John, who wrote the music for Billy Elliot the musical.

Legendary photographer Mario Testino shot a set of accompany images to support the film. The launch of the campaign also coincides with the full range of Burberry’s festive gifts becoming available to buy in store and online.
