Long-time advocate of individuality, Ellen DeGeneres has joined forces with GapKids to design a collection and promote a great message. The comedienne's point is to inspire young girls and boys to celebrate their identities and be unique (also a key message in her clothing and lifestyle brand, ED).
Ellen has not only made some cute kids clothes, but she has also tried to inspire girls to find their own voices. Pictures of lightning bolts, and speech bubbles, adorn pieces in the collection to represent strength and allow girls to find words of encouragement.
The campaign delivers the same message, with a cast of successful ‘real-life girls’ showing how much fun it is to do their own thing! There’s a nine-year-old engineer of prosthetic hands and a pro drummer, to name a few. The impressive kids pose in the new clothes alongside Ellen in the collection that is out August 18th.
