They are young Kiwi women taking the world by storm - one has a No 1 hit in several countries and the other won literature's Man Booker prize.

Yesterday, Lorde and Eleanor Catton posed in bed in the New York apartment of New Zealander Gemma Gracewood, channelling the famous photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1969 in-bed peace protest.

The two Kiwis caught up as Lorde celebrated her 17th birthday. Her worldwide hit Royals is number one on the US charts for the sixth week in a row.

Catton, 28, is enjoying acclaim after becoming the youngest winner of the Booker prize with The Luminaries.
