Annie Leibovitz shoots Marks & Spencer’s Leading Ladies of Britain for Autumn Winter 2013

Marks & Spencer are stepping things up a notch this season. Actually, it’s about ten notches. Not only has the brand brought in legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz to shoot the campaign, they’ve also enlisted 12 of Britain’s Leading Ladies to step in front of the camera. The end result is a series of stunning photographs that support a brand that is at the heart of British lifestyle. 

From Helen Mirren to Grace Coddington, every woman sitting perfectly poised for Annie Leibovitz, tells a tale of great success for Britain. Whether working further afield or remaining in the home country, they are revolutionary in their field of expertise. Marks & Spencer didn’t just concentrate on the big British names that are recognised the world over. They included inspirational figures like Helen Allen, Nurse of the Year 2011, and Jasmine Whitbread, CEO of Save the Children. It’s a truly world-changing cast of women and a beautiful campaign to boot. 

Oh, and of course we must mention that obviously all the clothing you see modelled is from the Marks & Spencer Autumn Winter 2013 Collection. So you see, it’s not just their campaign that’s had a complete overhaul for the new season. The actual clothing is back to basics with classics brought forth in the limelight, mixed with essential trends for the season. It’s the dawning of a new day for Marks & Spencer, one they should be proud of, and one which we are more than pleased to support.
