M&S new campaign shows 12 women from diverse backgrounds
Aug '13
An Oscar winning actress, a life changing charity CEO, an Olympic gold medalist, a ground breaking artist and an inspiring nurse of the year – are just a few of the women to showcase the new Autumn collections in a campaign announced by Marks & Spencer.

Shot by acclaimed fashion photographer, Annie Leibovitz, the campaign will launch nationwide on 3rd September – signaling a reassertion of M&S’ leading quality and style credentials.

Billed under the strapline ‘Meet Britain’s Leading Ladies’ the campaign celebrates 12 British women from very diverse backgrounds and professions.

Despite being very different people, their strong sense of personal style and inspirational achievements which have propelled them to success, are the common threads which bind them together.

Be it physical strength, dedication to helping others, overcoming adversity, or simply sheer determination to be the best they can, each woman is truly inspiring.

The full line up is:

- Nicola Adams Olympic Gold Winning Boxer
- Monica Ali Award-Winning Author
- Helen Allen Nurse of the Year 2011
- Darcey Bussell Retired Principal Ballerina at The Royal Ballet
- Grace Coddington Creative Director of US Vogue
