It seems somewhat ironic then that the actress would agree to pose for one of Gap’s famously choreographed ad campaigns. (Her face currently peers out from countless billboards and TV screens, alongside songstresses Tweet and Marianne Faithfull.) But not surprisingly, Manning managed to make the brand’s homogenous look her own, rolling up her flare jeans and tucking them into her boots.
"It was pretty pimp, because they need to advertise what the jeans look like and you couldn’t even see them," she raves. "And I didn’t wear any shirt underneath my hoodie. It wasn’t very sexy at first, but I just unzipped it, and they were like, ‘Yeah, that’s all right!’"
Of course, by now Manning’s on to the next. Her look’s been bitten.
