UPDATED JUNE 07th 2011: Added 16 year old Molly Smith (the girl in green trench) interview excerpt via Vogue UK.
MOLLY SMITH is Burberry‘s latest star girl. The 16 year old from Derbyshire was discovered while shopping in Covent Garden two years ago, and has been cast as the label’s autumn/winter 2011 campaign star – photographed by Mario Testino – and inspired by David Bailey‘s portraits of Jean Shrimpton taken in the Sixties.
“[The shoot] was very relaxed and exciting at the same time – it was the best day of my life so far! My mum and dad are so proud,” Smith told us today. “It was great working with the other British models, and I have always loved the Burberry campaigns so to be a part of it was really cool. I really love [the images], the clothes and the styling are amazing. The Sixties-style make-up looks wicked.”
Although modelling wasn’t always what Smith set out to do (she is currently still at college), she has since landed campaigns for Topshop (spring/summer 2011), and McQ (pre-fall autumn/winter 2011). Once she finishes college, Smith hopes to go into modelling full-time – but she may have to give up one of her favourite pastimes first.
“I used to play girls’ football but I don’t so much now – my agents have told me not to bruise my legs so much!” she laughed. “Aside from work I love seeing my friends and family and playing Grand Theft Auto – I love computer games.”
Has life changed since she started her career?
“When I am at home with my mum and dad it all feels the same, apart from if I go into a shop or something and my picture is there – like when the Topshop campaign was out – that was fun,” she said. “I am still at college, so I feel pretty normal most of the time. All my friends have been really nice and supportive which I am happy about. But when I come to London it’s like a different world, I feel really grown-up going to do these things, it’s so exciting!”
