Are Andy Murray and Kim Sears the new faces of Burberry?

Published 15/07/2013 | 21:08

The Wimbledon winner and his long-term girlfriend are expected to be the latest famous couple to pose together for the luxury brand in their upcoming campaign.

At the Wimbledon Champions Dinner last week, The Telegraph pointed out how newly-crowned winner Andy Murray and his other half Kim Sears, both elegantly turned out in Burberry, could give Tom Sturridge and Sienna Miller a serious run for their money.

Real-life couple and actors, Miller and Sturridge star in the British brand's autumn/winter 2013 campaign, which sees them enjoy a very public display of affection by kissing for the camera in chic trench coats.

Now reports point to Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey wanting to sign Murray, 26 and Sears, 25.

The couple, who met through Sears's tennis coach father Nigel, have been dating for seven years and often receive front row tickets to the luxury fashion giant's London Fashion Week show.

Murray's manager Simon Fuller is thought to be orchestrating talks between the two parties, and as manager to the Beckhams, was most likely involved in securing 10-year-old Romeo Beckham's recent stint as a Burberry campaign star.

Past couple pairings for the brand include Eddie Redmayne and Cara Delevingne, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sam Riley, but these personalities did not enjoy an off-camera romance.

Murray and Sears have already proved they make the perfect team, and can sport Burberry with as much flair as your average model, so perhaps it's time they took their declarations of love out of the tennis stands and onto billboards across the world.
