Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor proves she’s model material as she stuns in first fashion campaign

Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor is not only a vision onscreen, but she’s seriously got what it takes to own the catwalk too, if her first fashion campaign is anything to go by.

The actress, 25, who is better known for playing Daphne Bridgerton in the record-breaking Netflix series, has been snapped up by British designer brand Self Portrait that specialises in ready-to-wear fashion.

Phoebe is the face of the fashion house’s Autumn/Winter 2021 line and proving her modelling credentials, she stunned in new photos shared from the campaign.

The shoot took place in London and captures a day at home with the former Waterloo Road star, with Phoebe ditching her period drama gowns for cute dresses, stylish co-ords and over-sized jumpers – which are arguably the best go-to lockdown look, right?

One shot sees Phoebe looking every inch the fashionista in furry lilac three-piece skirt suit (which she’s revealed she’s ‘obsessed with’), while another sees her kicking back in a doorway in a knitted blue midi dress.

Fussed over by the beauty team on location, Phoebe’s trademark bangs were on point and her flawless, dewy skin is enough to have us rethinking our own skincare regime pronto.

Speaking about her first fashion campaign, Phoebe described her partnership with Self-Portait as something of a ‘love affair’ and said that, actually, the line has some similarities to her Bridgerton wardrobe when it comes to those sweetheart necklines, ‘delicate lace designs’ and soft colour palettes.

She told British Vogue: ‘I first spotted one of Han Chong’s [Self-Portrait’s founder] dresses on a photoshoot and it was an instant love affair,’ adding that she ‘jumped at the chance’ to collaborate with the designer.

Discussing her own love for clothes, Phoebe said she can’t wait until she has an excuse to dress up again, given that lockdown has had us all turning to sweats and gymwear.

She told the publication: ‘I feel so lucky to have been working and this has meant I have been able to collaborate and try different looks for press throughout lockdown, but what I do know is that I am longing for the day where I can dress up to leave the house again.

‘I think we are all longing to have a reason to dress up again.’

Following Bridgerton’s release on Netflix on Christmas Day, Phoebe has found herself as one of the hottest stars around in the film and TV world, thanks to the series being watched by a hugely impressive 82million households within 28 days of dropping on the streaming platform.

Immediately viewers became hooked on her onscreen romance with her co-star Regé-Jean Page, who stars in the series as Simon Bassett aka the Duke of Hastings.

Their incredible chemistry onscreen led to everyone speculating whether the pair were actually dating in real-life (spoiler alert: they’re not) and everybody was talking about the pair as the series became one of the biggest, if not the biggest series, to come out in lockdown.

Phoebe has since revealed that she received a call from Daisy Edgar-Jones, who experienced a very similar situation, when her series Normal People dropped in the first national lockdown last year.

Daisy recalled the fame that came with the show debuting felt like a ‘strange dream’ and she admitted it had been ‘difficult to register’ at first.

Speaking to L’Officiel, Phoebe revealed: ‘[Daisy] knew exactly what I was going through, from being part of a couple and [having] that sort of hit known worldwide, during the pandemic.’

Bridgerton has since been confirmed for a second season, with Phoebe’s co-star Jonathan Bailey, who plays her onscreen brother Viscount Lord Anthony Bridgerton, taking centre stage this time round.

Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix.
