It’s been 15 years since Billy Elliot was released, earning itself a part in British movie history. To celebrate that fact, Burberry, another great British institution, has taken the dance-themed film as its inspiration for its 2015 festive campaign.
Now this might be old news, but what better time to share this news, right in time for some christmas cheer!
Want to know more? Here’s how it goes:
Elton John and Julie Walters lead a pack of British talent. Both, of course, have ties to Billy Elliot; Walters starred as dance teacher Sandra Wilkinson in the original film, while Elton wrote the music for the film’s hugely-successful stage adaptation, Billy Elliot the Musical.
Joining them is comedian James Corden, actress Michelle Dockery (better known as Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary), musicians James Bay and George Ezra, Romeo Beckham – for whom it’s the second Burberry Christmas campaign – models Naomi Campbell and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as well as Rosie’s brother Toby, who is welcomed into the Burberry fold for the first time.
Now here’s the best part:
Burberry has donated £500,000 in recognition of each artist’s participation in the festive campaign to two charities that help young people in the North of England community of Easington where Billy Elliot was filmed.
Now that’s what I call a Merry Christmas!
Talk about erratic weather – the monsoon dampen’s everybody’s spirit ( Including a fashion enthusiast in me). I hate having to swap my choo’s for rain-proof footwear, and my Bottega for a bag that’s not as chic but weather resistant.
However, all’s not lost – I realized i could have some fun with a chic umbrella! I started my hunt and boy I wasn’t disappointed! Here’s my pick of the 5 chicest umbrellas
Burberry Prorsum – Fun & Chic
Marc Jacobs – Graphic God with great prints!
Kate Spade- Always as cute as a button!
Chanel Camellia Umbrella – Monochrome Magic!
Hemes – my favorite kind of orange!
Which one would you pick? Let me know in the comments below!

Definitely the hottest look for Spring: Ladylike with a Twist! Demure Hemlines are in, but forget prim and proper, put your best foot forward in quirky tennis shoes!
There’s no better way to update your suit for spring, than with a pair of fun sneakers like my favorite model Cara Delevigne has! I personally recommend wearing colorful and interesting sneakers with different textures, just to make the suit pop and add some extra detail!

If there’s one thing no woman can ever get enough of…it has to be lace!
The oh-so steamy and sexy look it provides, is one all enjoy…and men too of course!
This time around we’re seeing lace as a trend in the most different ways possible, so subtle and understated, yet so gorgeous. Absolutely Love it.
Take for example the incorporation of lace in the A/W’14 collection of Jimmy Choo handbags and pumps. I’m also loving the sultry look as seen here at the SS’15 runway presentation for Burberry and Stella McCartney.
This definitely has me majorly lusting over lace!
Looking for a new perfume?
I recommend you try MY BURBERRY. It comes hand-wrapped in a ribbon made of the same gabardine used in the company’s trench coats. You can also customize the bottle in your initials. You can monogram your virtual bottle as I just did and share them on social platforms.
Christopher Bailey sure has ambitions to to give others competition.
