5 things we love about the Burberry Christmas advert

It’s November and since Halloween is over, we are all just about ready to start talking about Christmas. Before you say it, we know it’s still early days, and yes it does get earlier every year, but bear with us. When it comes to Burberry, there’s no such thing as too early. 

Burberry have released their star-studded Christmas campaign celebrating not only the festive season, but also 15 years of Billy Elliott.

The video sees the likes of Romeo Beckham, Julie Walters, Rosie  Huntington-Whitely, Elton John and many, many more all taking on one of the iconic dance scenes of the movie, all clad in some seriously covetable Burberry items.

1. The Billy Elliott reunion

Julie Walters and Elton John have a mini Billy Elliott reunion in the advert, having starred in and created the music for the film respectively.

2. Best of British

The cast is, as I mentioned, all star. Burberry brings us famous faces from all industries, and some of our favourite Brits. Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, funnyman James Corden and queen Naomi Campbell are among the cast, offering up a celebration of all things Brit for the start of the festive season.

3. The fashion

Christmas fashion at its finest with the Burberry gift range launching officially in the advert. We’re talking monogrammed scarves, dreamy trenches and Burberry make-up giving us serious product lust.

4. Romeo Beckham

The middle Beckham boy takes centre stage as a modern-day Billy Elliott for the advert, kicking it off with the iconic Billy jump.

5. Julie Walters in gold
Now what?
