Next in line to use “real people” over models to promote their clothes: Banana Republic!
And they've landed on a gay couple, which is sorta appropriate considering the phallic shape of their eponymous fruit. Ha!!
Anyway. Nestled in with a handful of other “real” couples and families is one of the cutest same-sex couples in existence: interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent! In case you weren’t aware, Nate’s known for his design work with Oprah while Jeremiah was formerly employed by Rachel Zoe.
The dashing pair poses in multiple amazing pics, and their true love totally shines through!
Trey Laird, the chief creative officer behind the new campaign, explained that the latest ads were meant:

People known for their quirky fashions: Rita Ora, Rihanna…and the future Kate Middleton??
Despite the flawlessness of the new mama’s hair and clothing, she’s apparently being encouraged by close friend and interior designer Emilia Jardine-Paterson to switch up her look.
Emilia's name might sound familiar because she's one of Prince George’s seven lucky godparents!
An insider spilled the deets of the situation:

Check out the photos above (and below) of J. Lo's new California home.
Here's what J. Lo's interior designer Michelle Workman had to say about the home:
"It's sort of Jennifer in a nutshell—she has a romantic streak. It's tastefully glamorous, like Jennifer herself. That approach goes along with my whole design philosophy, which is about capturing the personalities of the homeowners."
"There are all these tones of gray, and we played with that—using a bit more of a gray-taupe here, a bit more of a gray-blue there. It's almost like a black-and-white film from the forties."
"Jennifer wanted to go modern and streamlined but retain the sophistication and stylishness."
And more from Michelle:
"I love to mix gold and silver tones. It's warm and cool together. Gold is traditional, and silver is modern and sleek. It's a great marriage of feminine and masculine."
"Jennifer and I wanted elegance, but we didn't want it to look stuffy or conservative or serious. We wanted it to be graceful, with just enough sparkle."
We think Jennifer and Michelle def made some good choices with the home. We especially like that kitchen!
What do U think?

Diane von Furstenberg is taking her prints from the runway to the hotel room as she's signed on to design rooms at London's Claridge's hotel.
The designer and CFDA president said that her latest project was an accident. She explains:
"They approached me because, two years ago, I showed a collection in Florence, which had one line inspired by the grand lobby of Claridge's. I had already designed a line of rugs and home-furnishing fabrics, so I thought it would be a great idea to decorate the hotel."
Diane added her touches on everything from desks, cocktail bars, paint, and curtains in 20 hotel suites.
The rooms will even feature photographs taken by DVF, which was the hotel's idea. She reveals: "I was really taken by surprise, but after I looked into the visual diary that I keep of my travels, I thought it would look very nice."
Sounds like quite the fashionable stay!
Four of the 20 rooms designed by Miz von Furstenberg will be available to guests starting June 23rd.
