After of months of rumours as to who will feature in Burberry's autumn/winter 2008-9 campaign, it has finally been confirmed as model Rosie Whiteley-Huntington and actor Sam Riley. Photographed in Kensington Gardens, the campaign is a subdued change from Burberry's colourful spring/summer '08 pictures, starring Agyness Deyn.

The intimate images, shot by Mario Testino, have been summed by up Burberry's Christopher Bailey as "capturing the poetic melancholy and romance of the winter collections".

As for whether the Brit label plans to hang onto Agy, you will be glad to know that our favourite pixie-cropped model will be sticking around as the face of its fragrance, The Beat, appearing in its A/W 2008-9 campaign.

"Agyness is a huge part of the Burberry family and a personal friend," said Bailey. "We've worked with her for several years and I am thrilled she will continue to star in our fragrance campaign."

See, so everyone's a winner.
