Watch your back, Naomi Campbell. After receiving a modeling lesson from the super on The Late Late Show, James Corden seems to be following in Campbell’s well-paced footsteps and embarking on a career as a model—at least that’s what the above video, a bit from his show, would have you believe.
The four-minute clip tracks Corden’s journey to the runway at Burberry’s London in Los Angeles show that took place last week. Everything is captured, from Corden backstage checking out other male models’ bums to him screaming for a Danish before hitting the runway. “I feel sad that I’m going to have to let The Late Late Show go, but I’m an international model now,” he deadpanned to the camera before strutting his way down the catwalk.
Burberry CEO and chief creative officer Christopher Bailey agreed that Corden has what it takes to make it in the fashion industry, adding, “What James brought tonight was a real elegance. He brought a refinement, a sophistication—he brought a sense of gravitas to fashion that we so desperately needed.” Even the crowd at the show, which included Elton John, Victoria Beckham, and Anna Wintour, seemed to agree, smiling and cheering for the comedian as he took a dramatic turn down the runway.
So can we expect some more of Corden’s modeling moments at this year’s CFDA Awards, which he’s set to host? Fingers crossed…
