Update 11/13: Burberry has released a two-minute short film directed by Juno Calypso to accompany its holiday campaign. The feature, titled Close Your Eyes and Think of Christmas, stars Matt Smith, M.I.A., Kristin Scott Thomas, Naomi Campbell, and her mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell. The mother-daughter model duo close out the video, lounging on a couch while donning Burberry’s signature check from head to toe .

“Juno explores the dance between the reality and fantasy of a very British Christmas, drawing on her own experiences and rituals; from the unpredictable British weather to family togetherness, delayed trains to festive feasts,” the video’s description reads.


Original Story, 3/11: Burberry isn’t wasting any time getting into the holiday spirit. The British brand has already teased its Festive Campaign for the year, featuring some of U.K.’s finest, including supermodel Naomi Campbell—and her mom.

Valerie Morris-Campbell, a model herself, joins the star-studded roster, which includes The Crown’s Matt Smith, actress Kristin Scott Thomas, rapper M.I.A., and British artist and photographer Juno Calypso, who also shot and directed the campaign. Both Campbells wear a white shirt and black blazer in their portraits.

This is hardly the mother-daughter duo’s first time modeling together. In 1993, they hit the Mugler runway together in complimentary black and white ensembles.

Then, in 2010, they resumed the double act by walking in the Fashion for Relief charity show in London.

Naomi often brings her mother to fashion events. Last December, she brought her mom as her date to The Fashion Awards in London. The pair both wore all-black ensembles on the red carpet, with Naomi in a tulle gown by Versace and Valerie in a sleek suit and fur stole and Bulgari necklace.

You can thank Valerie for teaching Naomi how to strut on the runway. “When I was 12 or 13, she appeared in a fashion show, and I remember her showing me how to walk in the hallway at home,” Naomi recalled in an autobiography, excerpted by The Guardian in 2016. “Lionel Richie was playing in the background and I watched her walk up and down to the beat of the music.”
