Gap’s New Group

-------

In the past, Gap has roped in top models ranging from Bar Refaeli to Caroline Trentini to Karmen Pedaru to Liu Wen to front its ad campaigns. But for Fall, the retailer took a different route, this time opting for a cast of up-and-coming musicians and dancers to be the faces of its “Shine” campaign.

In the images, the group, including Seth and Scott Avett from the Avett Brothers, San Francisco Ballet star Yuan Yuan Tan, and dancer Lil Buck (who just completed a project with Natalie Portman’s husband, Benjamin Millepied), sports the label’s Icon Redefined collection—read: updated Gap classics. “In the late eighties and early nineties, Gap is what all the cool girls were wearing,” singer-songwriter Nicki Bluhm, who is also in the campaign, told Style.com last night at an editor preview in New York. “Obviously, they still are.” Of the shoot, the modeling rookie added, “I’ve never modeled before and Yuan Yuan had her shoot just before mine. She was unbelievable, doing these insane high kicks and leaps across the room, and I thought, ‘Oh my God, what am I going to do that compares to this?’ ” Apparently, the jeans have a lot of stretch to them, but we don’t suggest trying Tan’s tricks at home. Here, get a first look at Tan and Bluhm in the newly unveiled shots.

Since leaving his namesake label, Simon Spurr has not discussed his plans for the future. However, the designer recently told British Vogue, “[I'm] looking forward with great hope and excitement toward my future within the industry as a men’s fashion designer.” As for his CFDA Award nomination this year, he said, “If they don’t vote for me this year, they’re not going to next year. It’s now or never.” [Vogue U.K.]

To show off her new line of intimates (not to mention her taut body), Bar Refaeli hit the tennis courts with her racquet in hand for a short film. In the video, Refaeli runs around in just a bra and underwear. [Telegraph]

Talk Supe At Hakaan’s After-Party

-------

When Naomi Campbell swept into Le Montana last night for ANDAM winner Hakaan Yildirim’s after-party, she pursed her lips and gently shook her head at an intrepid reporter’s tape recorder in a gesture at least as old as Garbo. But no matter. The stonewalling supermodel’s presence itself spoke volumes. It may not have been the party of the night—an honor reserved for a veteran, not a relative rookie—but it was a required stop for the girls who made the show a hit both on the runway and in the front row. That includes Eva Herzigova, Anja Rubik, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Natalia Vodianova (who came by early with Jefferson Hack), as well as fashion folk like Giambattista Valli, Charlotte Dellal, and Hidetoshi Nakata. Also taking in the dark, smoky scene were visiting New Yorkers Thakoon Panichgul, Lorenzo Martone, and Suno duo Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty.

Campbell commandeered the best downstairs booth with a perfect view of the dance floor, where she sat with boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin, and Bar Refaeli, the latter keeping an eye on beau Leonardo DiCaprio. (Though Leo, with baseball cap pulled low, wasn’t so much dancing as swaying with the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd.) For his part, Yildirim (above, with Arizona Muse and Lindsey Wixson) pronounced himself “happy but just very tired.” That wasn’t entirely the case with the line’s creative director (and photographer), Mert Alas, who played the host. “I liked it, but I’m never happy,” said Alas, half in jest. “You know when you have a perfect vision of how it should be? So I hate it all.”

In case you missed it last week (as, we confess, we did): Take a tour through the Alabama digs of artist Butch Anthony—a.k.a. the significant other of Alabama Chanin’s Natalie Chanin. Chanin’s homespun aesthetic has clearly rubbed off on her paramour (who, by the way, wears one of her shirts in the epic, wish-we-lived-there house-tour slideshow). [NYT]

The bloom is off the, um, Moss. Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs has canceled its planned show celebrating Kate Moss, citing “the current economic situation.”

And here’s the editorial we’ve all been waiting for: Terry Richardson shoots the self-professed guidos of Jersey Shore for Interview (pictured). The spread co-stars Bar Refaeli and an enormous Italian hero. Of course. [Interview]

See NY the SY way: Kim Gordon likes Acne, Prune restaurant, and the gallery that shows her work. [R29]
