Coddington appears in the fall ads for UK department store Marks & Spencer–and she’s certainly in good company. Alongside Ellie Goulding, Karen Elson, and several more of “Britain’s Leading Ladies” (as the campaign is being billed, according to Grazia), the ginger minx–looking elegant in a cream coat, white shirt, and navy suit–was photographed by none other than Annie Leibovitz in several stunning yet stereotypical Brit locales, including the River Thames and a lush English countryside. And, being shot by Leibovitz, the stunning campaign images wouldn’t look a touch out of place hanging in the Smithsonian.
“We wanted this campaign to signal a new and confident tone of voice to introduce Autumn,” Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, the M&S Executive Director Marketing and Business Development told Grazia. We’d say they’re on the right track–when it comes to total confidence in the fashion industry, Grace Coddington’s one of the first names that springs to mind.
