Since taking the modeling scene by storm in 2011, Cara Delevingne has been compared to fellow British model Kate Moss in just about every way possible. The two supermodels share an affinity for fashion week parties and music festivals, have appeared on shared LOVE magazine covers together, and have even walked in the same runway show. Yet, believe it or not, these British beauties have never actually shared an editorial or a campaign together—until now!
As previously reported back in March, the fashion icon and 22-year-old supermodel have been cast as the dual stars of Burberry’s new My Burberry fragrance campaign, the first images of which we’re getting a sneak peek at today. Shot by Mario Testino, the stripped down black-and-white portraits mark the first time the “It” Brits have been shot together— not that you could tell of course, just looking at the intimate behind-the-scenes photos, which show the two appear to be the best of pals while wearing little more than their matching Burberry trench coats. In one photo in particular, the two supers can even be seen getting cozying up to one another as they take shelter from the rain. Oh, and did we mention they are also completely naked?
“Kate has such a presence and she has a great sense of humor and style,” says Cara of her famous co-star. ”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.”
According to Burberry, the new scent is the brand’s iconic trench. “My Burberry is the true embodiment of our brand, in scent, in design, and in attitude,” says chief creative and chief executive officer Christopher Bailey. “A fragrance that takes its lead from the iconic Burberry trench has to be outstanding in every way.”
Meanwhile, the Burberry trench theme can be seen a multitude of ways on the scent. The fragrance is topped with a horn cap, the formula is a coat-colored honey hue, and each bottle is wrapped in a gabardine bow. You’ll even find the Burberry check discreetly engraved into the gold details on the packaging, while the floral aroma is meant to mimic the smell of a British garden after a rainstorm (grab your wellies!).
Not only do we have a first look at the bottle and the final My Burberry campaign shots, but we’ve also got behind-the-scene photos of what appeared to be an unforgettable shoot. Keep scrolling to see all of the adorably chic moments between the two British beauties including a look at the new campaign featuring music by Jeff Beck and Joss Stone. Catch it all after the jump!
