Ellen Degeneres has already proved her selling power with the launch of ED, her lifestyle site that began running out of items within hours of going live. Now, Gap has partnered with DeGeneres for a ridiculously cute line of children's clothes that will be launching August 17th.
Vogue UK got a first look at the upcoming collaboration, featuring DeGeneres alongside real girls (with impressive resumes) modeling the line: a young female professional drummer, pro-skateboarders, and a nine-year-old engineer of prosthetic hands.
"I know from my own experience that nothing makes you feel better than being who you are and celebrating what makes you unique," DeGeneres told Vogue UK. "I think if we shine a light on real girls doing incredible things, that'll encourage other girls and boys to do incredible things, and that'll encourage even more people to do incredible things, and eventually the world will be a more incredibler place."
