The ‘special project’ that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey have been teasing the press with has finally been revealed: the 24-year-old is the face – and more importantly body – of Burberry’s new fragrance.

Clad in nothing more than a strategically styled Burberry trench, she flaunts the toned, lithe body that has earned her a contract as a Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’.

”It’s a huge honour to be working with Burberry again, a brand that put my career on the map and helped launch me. To be asked to be the first ‘Burberry Body’ is an amazing compliment” said Rosie.

The Devon-born model, who is based in Los Angeles with her British actor boyfriend Jason Statham, is also the spokesmodel for the British heritage brand’s beauty range.

“Rosie’s effortless style and her staggering beauty made her the natural choice as the first Burberry Body,” explained Bailey, who handpicks up-and-coming British names from the worlds of music and film to star in the label’s advertising campaigns.

The two have enjoyed a close working relationship since Bailey cast Rosie in a Burberry campaign alongside Control actor Sam Riley. She wore a pink, custom-made Burberry gown to this year’s fashion ‘Oscars’ – the high profile CFDA awards – and made headlines in a neck-plunging, midnight blue creation to the recent London premiere of her first film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
