The Gap unveiled it’s 2012 Holiday Global Ad Campaign a few days ago, but just in case you haven’t seen it, here you go. I can’t even recall the last time I stepped into a Gap store. Probably, when the company had the best commercials around? Remember their “Khaki Swing” and “Mellow Yellow” ads. While not on the same level as their ads in their hey day, the recently debuted one is pretty dang adorable. “Love Comes In Every Shade” highlights various kinds of love from familial to love for pets, and everything in between.
“This campaign features some well-known actors, musicians and their loved ones, all wearing clothes from our new holiday collection,” said Seth Farbman, Gap’s Global Chief Marketing Officer. “Their personal relationships help remind us that every family is unique and often goes beyond just those we’re related to—it also includes the people we share our lives and deepest passions with. This campaign celebrates these diverse, optimistic views on family and the many forms love can take.”
Some of the celebrities enlisted include the cast of NBC’s new sitcom The New Normal displaying ‘Modern Love‘. A few of my other favorites include Rufus Wainwright posing with his husband for ‘Newlywed Love‘, Jack Huston with his dog Orso representing ‘Puppy Love‘ and rapper Nas with his dad showing ‘Fatherly Love‘. Check out all of The Gap’s shades of love below.
There’s definitely a baby boom going on with gay celebrities as of late. Canadian singer, Rufus Wainwright, is the latest to become a dad, joining Elton John & David Furnish and Neil Patrick Harris & his partner David Burtka as proud new gay parents. Wainwright and his partner of five years, Jorn Weisbrodt, welcomed baby girl Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen on February 2 in Los Angeles. The two announced the birth of their first child on Wainwright’s website.
“The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very, very beautiful. Daddy #1 would like to offer everyone a digital cigar and welcome the little lady in with a French phrase from his favorite folk song, A La Claire Fontaine: “Il y a longtemps que je t’aime, jamais je ne t’oublierai.”
Scissor Sisters frontman, Jake Shears, and Rufus Wainwright graced the cover of New York City’s “Next Magazine” latest issue. The fabulously gay duo are the subjects of photographer Tim Hailand’s next two photo books from his “One Day in the Life of” series. The series which started last year with Danielle Radcliffe, gives readers an intimate glimpse into the private lives of celebrities.
Both musicians provided text for their respective “One Day in the Life of” books. Each also has a special intro from a celebrity friend. Rufus’ intro was written by Cherry Vanilla, while Elton John wrote Jake’s, which also happens to have an afterword written by everyone’s favorite Aussie pop star, Kylie Minogue. I want Jake Shear’s celeb friends. Imagine a dinner party with Elton on your right and Kylie on your left. Fun gay times.
