Law student to star in M&S lingerie ads

Law students have once again proven that they have more than just brains after would-be lawyer Laura Zielinski joined the likes of 1960s supermodel Twiggy to become the new face of Marks & Spencer (M&S).

The 20-year-old Sunderland University student (pictured) will model the store’s DD+ lingerie range after beating off competition from nearly 2,000 applicants in a modeling competition organised by the high street chain.

Zielinski is due to shoot her first campaign for M&S next month (October) and her image will appear on in-store adverts nationwide.

Speaking about her win, Zielinski said: “M&S is an amazing brand to represent. It celebrates real women with real curves like mine. I’m over the moon!”

But M&S is not the first store to snap up a law student for an advertising campaign.

BPP Law School Legal Practice Course student Shannon Murray became the first disabled model to be used by Debenhams to feature in its advertising campaigns (read more).

Meanwhile, Nottingham University law student Jessica Linley now faces a showdown with the world’s most beautiful women after being crowned Miss England 2010. Linley, who wants to be a solicitor, fought off the charms of nearly 60 other English hopefuls at the annual beauty pageant in Birmingham and will now represent her country at the Miss World contest in China next month (October).
