Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse star in Burberry campaign
Models Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse stun in new Burberry campaign. Delevingne and Waterhouse are currently two of the hottest names in the fashion industry, and often upload photos of each other having fun backstage at fashion shows on their various social networking sites. But the new Autumn/Winter collection for the British brand marks the first time they've posed together for a campaign.
The photos were shot by famed photographer Mario Testino and feature Burberry's iconic trench coat. It also debuts Burberry's folk-style pieces that were first seen on the runways at London Fashion Week in February, a show which both models walked in. Wearing hand-painted coats and holding patchwork bags, the two beauties look both high fashion and completely relaxed with each other. Burberry's chief creative and chief executive officer Christopher Bailey bestowed the honour on Delevingne and Waterhouse to bring the spirit of the brand to life.
''A dynamic British cast brings the artistic spirit of the campaign to life with the iconic Burberry trench coat at its heart,'' Bailey is quoted saying in the British newspaper The Telegraph.
Waterhouse, who dates Hollywood A-lister Bradley Cooper, recently spoke about her long standing friendship with Delevingne. ''We've known each other since we were kids, so now, when we're working together, it never feels like I'm on my own,'' Suki told the Evening Standard.
The two fashionistas are joined by rising model star Malaika Firth, who starred in Burberry's Spring/Summer campaign too. The trio of beauties are complimented by male models Callum Ball, Tarun Nijjer and Oli Green.Delevingne is also busy with other aspects of her career.
As well as dipping her toes into the world of acting, the 21-year-old supermodel is also trying her hand at designing. DKNY and Delevingne are collaborating on a capsule collection, due to hit stores in November.
''I can't believe that some random, rough ideas have finally turned into my own collection designs with my own name on them and in collaboration with the iconic DKNY brand,'' Delevingne told WWD.
''It is so wild to realise that it has been an entire year since we began planning this project togethergoes to show that time does fly when you're having fun.''
