Boots (UK) - 'Tis The Season To Be Gorgeous'
Acclaimed director and fashion photographer David LaChapelle is at it again, doing his best Justin Timberlake impression and bringing sexy back—this time for the Boots No. 7 holiday campaign. The spot, out of Mother/London, shows gorgeous women doing the dullest holiday tasks with the power and aplomb typical of LaChapelle's female subjects. A woman with a puff of platinum hair like the base of a snowman struts with a kid on her hip while dragging a fir. A blonde in a ball gown casts the dish suds from her pink washing gloves then applies perfume to her rubberized wrists. Another peels Brussels sprouts while having a soak in the tub, and a dark-haired vamp paints her nails blood red before violently thrusting a fistful of stuffing into a turkey's cavity. "Tis the season to be gorgeous" ties it all together, and we'd have to agree.

According to Mother, the turkey scene alone took a whole day to film, while over 120 kilograms of sprouts were used in the bath scene. Vogue stylist Bay Garnet was also present on the shoot to advise.
