Banana Republic Enlists Some Stars



    Meet Four Inspiring Kids Tackling Cancer

    Plucking their talent lineup from the silver screen, Banana Republic's fall ads (and a series short films) will feature stars like Lauren Ambrose, Chris Messina, Scott Speedman, and Nicole Fiscella to play up the classic pieces of the campaign: the white shirts, chinos, suit, denim and trenchcoat.  The streets of New York City and Keith McNally's LES joint, Schiller's, will provide a backdrop for the prepster-gone-intellectual clothing store's body of work.

    In addition to advertising, Banana's cinematic turn will include a collaboration with Vanity Fair to sponsor Project Involve: City Stories, providing wardrobe and financial support to 10 up-and-coming filmmakers.
