'Burberry's' new holiday campaign is based on the award-winning musical production 'Billy Elliot.' While most holiday ads feature the same combination of Christmas music and festive decorations, this ad celebrates the anniversary of an iconic musical and film instead.

Billy Elliot is a musical production that follows the life of an an aspiring dancer named Billy. The new ad campaign celebrates the 15th anniversary of the film version of the musical. The campaign features a number of high-profile celebrities, including Michelle Dockery, James Corden and Elton John. The campaign also features Burberry models Naomi Campell, Rosie Huntingon-Whiteley and Romeo Beckham. The cast showcases Burberry's festive offerings by recreating the opening scene of the movie.

The glamorous new campaign not only shows off Burberry's beautiful collection, but it also helps support the charities 'Place2Be' and the 'County Durham Community Foundation.'
