After enlisting the likes of Tracey Emin, Helen Mirren, Grace Coddington and Ellie Goulding last year, M&S is now upping the stakes with an entirely new crop of leading ladies for Spring. Emma Thompson is there, of course, as are Alek Wek and Annie Lennox, Rita Ora, Fashion East director Lulu Kennedy, structural engineer Roma Agrawal (absent from this photo), Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon and chef and writer Rachel Khoo.

As with last season, the campaign will be shot by Annie Leibovitz, and released across the UK March 31. The ladies talk style inspiration in the video below – go straight to 0:14 to hear Emma Thompson hold forth on her youthful distaste for handbags.
