Harry Potter stars give modelling a whirl

Rupert Grint and Tom Felton swap their magic wands for the photographer’s studio for a campaign for Band of Outsiders

They may have played boy wizards in the Harry Potter films, but since the hit franchise wrapped last month two of its male stars have gone all grown-up and had a go at modelling.

Following in the footsteps of co-star Emma Watson, who appeared in Burberry’s 2010 advertising campaigns, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton have swapped the film set for the photographer’s studio to appear as the poster boys for the new Band of Outsiders ads.

The images, which were shot by the American label’s designer Scott Sternberg at The Magic Castle hotel in Los Angeles last month, show the pair in a series of hazy Polaroid-inspired photos modelling the autumn/winter 2011 collection.

The duo, who played Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy in the fantasy films, can be seen looking all grown-up and fashionable wearing striped polo shirts, chinos, checked shirts, hoodies, pea coats and tailored suits, as well as winter accessories such as cashmere beanies and scarves, in the label’s signature preppy aesthetic.

As is always the case with Band of Outsiders’ campaigns, the images look like they were a lot of fun to shoot with Rupert and Tom seen giggling in a series of playful poses around the Californian hotel and its gardens.

Looking good guys, looking good.
