MALAIKA FIRTH and Jean Campbell are two of the new faces in Burberry's spring/summer 2014 campaign, epitomising next season's "distinctly English mood", Christopher Bailey said. The Brit-based twosome appear alongside young British talent from the worlds of music and film, including Jamie Campbell Bower, Leo Dobson, Matilda Lowther, Neelam Johal and Callum Ball.
The youthful British cast helps highlight the Scottish-woven cashmeres and sheer English laces used in the collection, entitled English Rose, and - Bailey says - encapsulate the "gentle, effortless, romantic quality" of the season.

It was a real contradiction to all the other shows with skinny models.
Owens’ models were curved, plus-size models and were of lighter, as well as of darker skin color.
Somehow, it represented a statement against all the debates about black and white models, and fat and skinny models.
But, there were a lot of negative thoughts on this brave move of Owens. What do you think?
