Gap Brings Together 14 Famous Faces for Its “Bridging the Gap” Film

By  |  0 Comments

No piece of clothing transcends different styles, tastes, and backgrounds a white tee. In a new Gap film, "Bridging the Gap," the brand proves this using the basic shirt to bring together a diverse cast of 14 including Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson, Christie Brinkley, and Wiz Khalifa. Together, they all model white tops and sing "Sunny" by Boney M.

"This project is about authenticity and people living their truths," Edward Enninful, who cast, styled, and directed the campaign, said in a statement, "I love the optimistic American style that Gap celebrates and the simplicity of the basic white T-shirt that allows you to be yourself."

Runway favorite Adwoa Aboah tells ELLE.com shooting the project was a blast–especially since she was meeting some people for the first time, like Wiz Khalifa. "It's kind of a look at camaraderie. Everyone got on so well. It's quite embarrassing singing in front of people, but there was no shame–everyone just had a real good time. I loved it," she said. "I don't want to be part of anything that doesn't represent new. It was fresh. It was great casting. I've always been a great supporter of everything [Edward Enninful has] done and the way he stood for models of color and really given chances to everyone, really representing different types of women."
