In her bestseller “Mean Baby,” Selma Blair writes about growing up and in one part, recalls moving to New York City and getting a job at Gap.
"I lived at the Salvation Army. I worked at Gap. I worked at the coffee shop. I was a full-time acting student, and it was the moment,” she told People magazine.
Now, some 20 years after she worked at Gap, Blair is starring in a campaign for the clothing brand. In the ad, she says, “If I had my druthers, I’d be a cross between Twiggy and Sid Vicious… and Grace Kelly.”
A few seconds later, Blair drops her pants to some cheering. The ad, directed by Koto Bolofo and conceived by Gap Global Creative Director Len Peltier, is a return to form for Blair, who starred in a 2008 Gap ad with The Office’s Rainn Wilson.
