Got To Be Real

Oh my, oh my have Marks and Spencer ramped up their game over the years. No longer are they seen as that place where you stock up on undies and nightwear. Since the company rebranded themselves in 2005 they have been hitting our screens with some delicious adverts. With Twiggy as the head ambassador of the brand, the M&S adverts have become known as a form of theatre. Over the years they have enlisted the help of celebs such as Myleene Klass, Erin O’Conner, Lizzie Jagger, Noemie Lenoir and Lisa Snowden to sell their wares and the recent addition to the team is hippy chick, VV Brown. I must admit I was surprised when I heard the news as VV is kind of edgy but I guess that is the market that M&S want to appeal to. Check out the advert and tell me whether you agree that VV can most certainly strut in those heels. She makes me drool just looking at her. As for the song, it is called Got to Be Real by Cheryl Lynn and everytime I hear this tune I used to think of the moment when Carrie Bradshaw fell over in that fashion show in the fourth series of Sex and the City. This song was my theme tune for that but I guess now it will be for the M&S advert. Check out the Carrie Bradshaw moment below.

I did not realise that was vv brown. I think the commercial is really good and gives the message that marks and sparks is a trendy retailer. they do nice food as well
