Remember when we predicted Hot Girl Summer would be followed by Haute Girl Fall? Well, we’re now verging on the most wonderful time of the year...and “Hot Girl Summer” trademark holder Megan Thee Stallion is letting us know she’s a girl for all seasons, scoring her first fashion campaign with Coach.
After teasing the new relationship with an appearance at Coach’s Spring-Summer 2020 runway show in September, Megan now joins brand ambassador Yara Shahidi and family, Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee, Kate Moss, RuPaul’s Drag Race season eight winner Bob the Drag Queen and more in Coach’s 2019 holiday campaign (sadly, no appearances from Coach Men’s ambassador Michael B. Jordan this round). Thee Stallion can be seen riding a stallion of the carousel horse variety in the legacy label’s holiday commercial, which basically looks like the house party we want to be invited to this season.
As reported by Refinery29:
The campaign is reminiscent of a spontaneous New York house party in a brownstone. “Capturing the magical mood of the season, it champions the belief of coming together for the holidays and the inclusive, authentic spirit of New York,” the press release for the campaign reads. Photographed by Juergen Teller, the H-Town hottie models in joyful, unfiltered scenes that highlight the house’s spirit of playfulness and the authentic self-expression that defines New York City.
Megan models Coach’s Tabby bag, and while her moments in the commercial may be blink-or-you’ll-miss-it, the label has treated us to a bevy of behind-the-scenes moments on their YouTube channel, including the cast’s favorite holiday songs, a bloopers reel, and even Yara Shahidi’s family recipe for smashed potatoes. But our far and away favorite outtakes feature a sampling of Megan’s musical stylings—and comedic chops. We have a feeling she’ll be sticking to rap for now, but it’s looking like she also has a very promising career as a brand ambassador.
