twiggy02-08.jpgFirst it was designer collaborations; now it seems celebs are looking to wield the pen in their battles to cement fashion careers.

Hot on the heels of the Olsens' new coffee-table offering, Sixties supermodel and current M&S icon Twiggy is to bring out a style and beauty book with Penguin. All we know is that it will be aimed at women aged forty-plus and available later this year: Twiggy won't give anything away ("You've got to buy it, they would kill me").

She is, however, more forthcoming about her gang of M&S spokesmodels, explaining "We haven't done a commercial yet with Lily [Cole] because she's filming and we've lost Laura [Bailey] because she's pregnant... I miss her, we've all become close. They're my girls."
