Emily Mortimer for L.K. Bennett campaign

Kate Middleton's favourite footwear label, L.K. Bennett, has recruited Emily Mortimer for its latest campaign. The actress fronts the Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign for the company by modelling shoes from the new ready-to-wear luxury collection. Photographed by Catherine Servel and styled by Kate Young, Emily models a black lace dress, platform sandals and gold metallic clutch.

"As a brand that celebrates inspiring, accomplished and stylish women, Emily was a natural choice to front the campaign" said a spokesperson for L.K. Bennett. "And whilst we develop our retail presence in the U.S. and beyond, we were keen to ensure the star of the campaign was quintessentially British."

Speaking of her new role as L.K. Bennett brand ambassador, Emily said: "I am delighted to partner with L.K. Bennett as they have been a go-to British brand for my seasonal 'must haves.' I love so many pieces in the upcoming collection, from the perfectly cut bouclé coat to the patent toe ankle boots, they are the perfect complements to any Fall wardrobe."

There is no doubt about it, the Duchess of Cambridge and her love of L.K. Bennett shoes, particularly their pumps in nude and navy, have certainly raised the company's profile and profits.
