M&S reveals its second Leading Ladies line up

Marks & Spencer has unveiled its spring 14 advertising campaign featuring actress Emma Thompson, singers Annie Lennox and Rita Ora, chef Rachel Khoo, model Alek Wek, campaigner Baroness Lawrence, Fashion East director Lulu Kennedy and The Shard engineer Roma Agrawal.

The second Leading Ladies campaign features four images of the group and was once again shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, M&S executive director of marketing and business development, said the star-studded cast reflects the “unique and diverse women of a modern Britain”.

He added: “Marks & Spencer is a democratic brand which is relevant to women of all ages and strands of life; it is therefore natural for M&S to celebrate women in this way. M&S is extremely proud to have convened such an extraordinary group of exceptional women; this campaign is the embodiment of true British style, quality, diversity and success.”

All items featured in the campaign will be available to buy in selected Marks & Spencer stores and online at from March 31.

  • Is this an advert for 'we don't sell colour at Marks and Spencer' ?

  • I dont think this will sell more clothing, You only have to be aware and listen to customers talking to each other in the store to know they have no faith in fit or quality anymore.That, along with cheap fabrics and poor synthetic knitwear yarns all adds up to another awful season. Any amount of obsession with fashion is not going to cure that.
