Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne join forces in sultry Burberry fragrance ad

Two of the modelling world's biggest names have united to front a provocative campaign for My Burberry, the fashion brand's new perfume for women.

Kate Moss, 40, and 22-year-old Cara Delevingne pose together in a series of intimate black and white photos shot by Mario Testino.

The ads show fashion's original super and the hot star of right now cosying up suggestively and whispering and laughing in their Burberry trenches as they spray each other with perfume to the soundtrack of I Put a Spell on You, performed by Joss Stone.

A behind-the-scenes video reveals the filming of the ad, with footage of the two models larking around as they take direction from Burberry's Christopher Bailey and Testino.

"Kate has such a presence and she has a great sense of humor and style," Cara said. "We had met a few times before we worked on the My Burberry shoot together so I knew we would have fun together and that the pictures would be great. I’ve always admired Kate."

Cara has had a similar career trajectory to Kate and the two models share a number of similarities; in fact, Cara has been described as the hottest model to come out of Britain since Moss fever took the world by storm in the early 90s.

Cara was born in London, England in 1992, four years after Kate was discovered aged 14 at JFK Airport by the founder of Storm Model Agency.

Kate joined Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista, in becoming "the Supers" of the 1990s and her partially nude ads for Calvin Klein scent Obsession in 1993, while controversial, only increased her reputation as one of the world's most sought-after models.

Cara started out modelling as a little girl in Cadbury chocolate ads, but it was her campaigns for Burberry and H&M in 2011 which really catapulted her into the spotlight. 2012 saw her walk the runway for Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, Stella McCartney, and more.

She is expected to be a big name at New York Fashion Week later this month.

The fragrance My Burberry takes its name from the affectionate way in which people apparently term their Burberry trench coats.

"My Burberry is the true embodiment of our brand, in scent, in design and in attitude," said Christopher Bailey. "A fragrance that takes its lead from the iconic Burberry trench has to be outstanding in every way."
