Laura Carmichael As Mary, Edie Campbell As Jesus & Abbey Clancy As A Donkey? It Must Be LOVE Magazine's Fashion Nativity!

25 December 2012 by

Each day of advent we've been ripping open LOVE's video advent calendar. We've seen Cara Delevingne rolling about in her underwear and Lily Donaldson dressed up as a sugar plum fairy, so now that the Big Day is here, how to end the fash-extravaganza? With a super-special nativity video, of course!

Yes, Katie Grand, LOVE's Editor in Chief, has persuaded her fabulous friends to dress up for a cheeky retelling of the traditional tale. For starters, thespian Simon Callow CBE is the santa-hat-wearing narrator, telling us that 'this story is as old as time; it invented Like a Virgin and Home Alone and reinvented Mariah Carey.' Snort!

LOVE's celeb-packed cast consists of Laura Carmichael as Mary, Edie Campbell as Baby Jesus, Pixie Geldof as The Angel, Abbey Clancy as the, err, Donkey, her sister Elle Clancy as the sheep and Gwendoline Christie as the star. As for the boys, we're treated to fashion's three wise men including Giles Deacon, Henry Holland and David Waddington. Genius! Felipe Sanguinetti is Joseph, Johny Dufort and Luke Raymond are The Shepherds, Busta the Chihahua is Gold, Latrice the Checkered Giant rabbit is Frankincense and even Katie Grand's Lop rabbit Clara gets a cameo as Myrh.

'I love Christmas, and a nativity is always so jolly,' Katie tells us. 'Everyone always wants to be the Angel, but I always got to play the shepherd. So I went through my phone book and came up with this illustrious cast. Many thanks to Gwendoline Christie for persuading Simon Callow to narrate it.'

See, who needs a chocolate calendar when you have THIS? So grab your bulging stockings, gather the family and click play on the video below...
