Well we’ve all been waiting to see the campaign images for Marks & Spencer’s Spring/Summer 2010 campaign starring our very own Dannii Minogue and here we have it, previewed by the UK Daily Mail.
The 38-year-old mother-to-be joins a new cast of faces in promoting the High Street store’s latest womenswear, including Brazilian supermodel Ana Beatriz Barros (modeling the lingerie, of course) (and Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Snowdon, singer VV Brown and Twiggy).
The woodland and nautical-themed campaign was shot in Cape Town, South Africa and I really love Dannii’s navy jacquard dress below, retailing for Â£39.50.
Dannii announced last week that she would be writing an autobiography following a deal with publisher Simon & Schuster and she has also designed a range of dresses with handbag designer Tabitha Somerset Webb, and will soon be re-appearing on our screens as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.
She said: ‘I feel as though a whole life chapter is closing, and a new exciting one is unfolding. It feels like the right time to put pen to paper to account my first 38 years.
‘It\’s important to me that the book contains all the ups and downs of my life so far, with many stories untold. I\’m thrilled to be teaming up with Simon & Schuster to finally put my story on record.’
Danni is also believed to have signed a deal with ITV2 to film a Â£200,000 six-part reality television show.
I’m so pleased for Dannii, it’s about time all this success and recognition came her way, it’s not like she’s just been riding on her sister’s coattails, she’s worked her butt off to get out from under her shadow, for a tiny pop queen, it was a big shadow!
Yay for you Dannii.
Update: Marks & Spencer’s TV commercial starring Dannii, it’s really cute!Â Behind the scenes with all the faces at M&S’s website.
