Emma Thompson, Annie Lennox and Rita Ora will feature in Marks & Spencer's Spring/Summer 14 advert.

The stars will be joined by Alek Wek, Doreen Lawrence, Lulu Kennedy, Rachel Khoo and Roma Agrawal for this season's 'Leading Ladies' campaign.

Eurhythmics singer Annie said: ''This is the first campaign I've ever done - but who could resist being part of such a great line-up?''

The advert will feature four photographs of the group - which includes actors, chefs, campaigners and engineers - all shot in different British settings, such as Camber Sands, East Sussex, and the Cotswolds.

Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, Marks & Spencer's executive director of marketing and business development, told VOGUE magazine: ''Our spring/summer campaign is a celebration of style and accomplishment.

''These dynamic leading ladies represent the unique and diverse women of a modern Britain. They are united in their extraordinary achievements but confident in their differences.

''Marks & Spencer is a democratic brand which is relevant to women of all ages and strands of life; it is therefore natural for M&S to celebrate women in this way. M&S is extremely proud to have convened such an extraordinary group of exceptional women; this campaign is the embodiment of true British style, quality, diversity and success.''
