The first campaign image for Burberry’s newest fragrance just dropped, and YOWZA, is this thing a DOOZY. The face of Burberry’s “Body” is none other than stone cold gorge model-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Shot by legendary fashion photographer Mario Testino, the ads feature Rosie lying across a tan seamless clad in nothing but an unbuttoned camel trench coat with the lapels strategically placed over her lady lumps.
No doubt the Transformers leading lady/Victoria’s Secret angel looks absolutely drop dead in all that bare skin and fresh-faced beauty game, but this ad has us scratching our heads and stroking the long contemplative beards that protrude from our chins when we think too hard. When the campaign officially launches this September and the bottles of “Body” *said in the breathiest but also huskiest voice you can muster* hit stores, who exactly is supposed to be buying it??? I mean, there isn’t a whole lot conclusive you can say after looking at this image. Is the fragrance for men? Is it for women? Is it a vial of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s sweat meant for men and women to buy and pour all over their bedsheets? The possibilities are endless, and all we want are answers.
