Marks & Spencer: Britain’s Leading Ladies Spring/Summer 2014

Marks & Spencer unveiled its new Britain’s Leading Ladies collection for Spring/Summer 2014 at its flagship store located at Wheelock Place on April 17th. The new Leading Ladies campaign features an eclectic group of influential British women including Emma Thompson (actress, screenwriter & author), Annie Lennox OBE (singer/songwriter & human rights campaigner), Rita Ora (singer/songwriter), Alek Wek (supermodel, activist & artist), Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon OBE (campaigner & life peer), Lulu Kennedy (designer & fashion guru), Rachel Khoo (chef, writer & broadcaster) and Roma Agrawal (structural engineer & advocate for technical careers), photographed by the iconic fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz. It’s a celebration of diverse backgrounds, personal style and inspirational achievements by each and every one of these Leading Ladies. This collection features this season’s trends with a graphic monochromatic palette and abstract prints as well as pretty pastels and shimmering metallics. Plus, the awesome revival of the 90s silhouette and luxurious trends.

The Leading Ladies S/S 2014 collection is now available to buy exclusively in Marks & Spencer Wheelock Place flagship store.

Best Dressed: 2012 MTV EMAs

OH YES. The 2012 MTV EMAs is all about Gangnam Style. Yes, dress classy and dance cheesy. Country cutie Taylor Swift went home with the most awards but we are more interested in what she is wearing. What’s awesome about the EMAs (in my humble opinion) is the complete randomness. You can expect the most eclectic tastes in music and icons (The Hoff. Enough said.). Let’s see who wears what at the 2012 MTV EMAs and absolutely rocked it:

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Rita Ora

Rita Ora pulled out the big guns in this dramatic, red Marchesa Fall 2012 gown. LOVE IT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys hit the spot in this Stella McCartney tri-colour “Miracle” dress. That hair is just sharp!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Kim Kardashian

YES. Kim Kardashian set the benchmark in this remarkable Stephane Rolland dress with a glamorous train.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Pixie Geldof

I couldn’t help but notice Pixie Geldof clutching on her Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy wrapper clutch in metallic pink. HOT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Heidi Klum

I can’t decide whether I like this or not (seriously). Heidi Klum definitely stood out in this Versace Spring 2013 number.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Anna V

Anna V lives her life dangerously in this “smoking” zipper dress.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Taylor Swift

I’ve seen Taylor Swift in these white, ethereal one, too many dresses. She still looks beautiful in this J. Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey excudes vintage glamour in this satin, blue dress. Simple yet chic.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Louise Roe

Louise Roe channels the glam gladiator in this gorgeous white dress. Not lovin’ the snakeskin clutch though!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Carly Rae Jepsen

Call me, maybe? Carly Rae Jepsen shines in this Johanna Johnson dress.
