Last month there was a sneak peek at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s campaign for Burberry Body. Now the label has released a behind-the-scenes video from the making of those ads.
Clad in nothing more than a strategically styled Burberry trench, 24-year-old Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 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.
The footage also shows Christopher Bailey right next to Testino giving direction on the set of the shoot. “Burberry Body is the most exciting launch that we have ever created and captures the iconic spirit of the brand today in a striking and sensual way,” Bailey said last month.
“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.’
“To be asked to be the first ‘Burberry Body’ is an amazing compliment,” Huntington-Whiteley said in a statement. The fragrance launches in over 150 countries in September.
