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.

Coco Rocha essentially took this season off in terms of the runway, walking exclusively for Zac Posen in New York and Giorgio Armani in Milan. But Rocha was far from out of service during fashion month. She’s been hard at work putting the final touches on her forthcoming documentary Letters to Haiti (making its New York City debut next month at Milk Studios) and crafting a line of jewelry for Senhoa, due out tomorrow on Senhoa.org. The collection ($65 to $995), which benefits victims of human trafficking in Cambodia by giving them job opportunities, is all handcrafted by a survivor of exploitation. “Once I heard the extent of the problem with human trafficking in Cambodia I knew I had to help,” Rocha told Style.com.
To show off her range of gunmetal and Swarovski necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, Rocha enlisted pal Behati Prinsloo to model alongside her in a new cinemagraph campaign by Jamie Beck, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. (For her print campaign, she also brought her friends into the picture—Iman and Caroline Trentini both appear with her in the Nigel Barker-lensed photos.)
“I first met Behati at a Louis Vuitton after-party in 2006 and we were instant friends,” Rocha says. “We feel like we went to model high school together so it’s always like a happy reunion when we get together.”
