Photo of the Day: Banana Republic Edition

I was doing a little "two screen" action last night, watching the Academy Awards red carpet arrivals on TV, and catching up on who I'd missed on People.com, when I noticed an ad on the People homepage.  See what caught my eye?


Here is a close-up:


I like everything about this - two men in a romantic embrace, the way ads have been portraying straight couples for years.  Even better, it was on a hugely popular website on one of the most important nights for fashion.  And it's on there in a sort of... no big deal kinda way, subtly underscoring the normalcy.

Bravo, Banana.

  1. I saw that ad yesterday too! I think the dude in the front is Nate Burkes (not so sure of the spelling) he's a big home design guy.
