Who Is The Actress In The Old Navy 2021 Holiday Commercial?

Old Navy is known for its cheerful commercials throughout the year, but for 2021 holiday season, the retail clothing chain is kicking up the color. The new ad campaign for the brand, which has been named ALL-IDAYS, shows that there's more to the holidays than just red and green.

The joyful new advertisement features a slew of dancers of all ages who jam out to cheerful music in their new holiday-themed Old Navy threads. The narrator and star of the commercial comments that the retailer is "bringing all of the color" because this season is too "big" for just two hues. As colorful lights blink in the background, viewers are shown bold striped scarves, Fair Isle caps, and even a colorful snowperson.

For those watching the commercial, the star of the ad might look somewhat familiar. That's because the actor has quite a reputable history in the entertainment industry. So who is the star of Old Navy's newest holiday commercial?

Keke Palmer lights up Old Navy's All-idays

For those wondering who the star is of Old Navy's 2021 holiday commercial, it's none other than Keke Palmer. The retailer brought the 28-year-old actress on board to help promote their fashion line that features culturally diverse holiday prints.

Palmer told E! News that she decided to partner with Old Navy because "it's a very American brand in all the ways that I feel like I represent." She added, "It's inclusive, celebrating all the different cultures and denominations alike. To me, that's what I feel when I think of being an American. I feel like Old Navy has always been a good representation of that, and this year is no different when it comes to the holidays. We're celebrating all people in all traditions."

The actor also revealed that she liked that everyone who was "in charge" of the production for the retail giant was female. "This is a big deal," she said. "To see women in these positions, it's definitely representative of the evolution that is happening, and we're continuing to try to grow forward as a society."
