19 Apr 2016

The actress has been named new face of the brand

Lily James has spent most of her career in elaborately old fashioned dresses and hairdos, starring in the likes of Downtown Abbey and Cinderella.

Now, the actress will take on a different role, one that doesn't require learning lines! The 27-year-old has been chosen to feature in the ad campain for British fashion giant Burberry's latest fragrance, My Burberry.

It's the actress' first-ever advertising campaign, and she succeeds Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, among others, in new ads shot by none other than Mario Testino. The campaign will launch in August this year.

"I am thrilled to be officially joining the Burberry family," Lily said in a statement. "I am so proud to be British, so it really means a lot."

"Shooting my first campaign was so special. I don't want to give away too much but I had a lot of fun showing a different side of myself."

Lily has a busy 2016 - she is currently filming Baby Driver and will appear in The Kaiser's Last Kiss and TV mini-series War & Peace

Well, atleast we can be rest assured she'll smell great doing all those things!
