WWD – Kendall Jenner loves posing in her underwear. Jenner, one of the most followed and photographed people in the world, will join the steamy society of Marky Mark, Michael Bergin, Kate Moss, Eva Mendes, Justin Bieber, Lara Stone and Christy Turlington, who over the years have all stripped down to their Calvin Klein undies.
In terms of daring, the new underwear ads rank up there with some of Calvin’s sexiest. And the company’s creative team sees the campaign as a reassertion of its risqué tradition, signaling the return of “The Original Sexy.”
The 19-year-old model was shot with Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana and Edita Vilkeviciute. The ads break at the end of the month.
“It was super fun. Every girl loves posing in her underwear. It’s always fun to do that,” Jenner, reached last week in London, told WWD. “I’m close with Joan, and me and all the girls are friends.”
Shot by Mikael Jansson in New York, the campaign features individual portraits of the models showcasing an elevated assortment of embroidered lace sling balconettes (a shelf bra that lifts the breasts to enhance their appearance, shape and cleavage), plunge-neck chemises and bodysuits in seductive fits. The ads will focus on the higher-end product, Calvin Klein Black.
“Calvin Klein originated sexy, and we’re going to reclaim, reimagine and reimage it,” said Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer of Calvin Klein Inc. “We’re bringing together a powerful mix of women from all over the world to celebrate our heritage as a leader in the intimates category.”
The shoot took place at Pier 59 in New York. “I had flown in from Paris from Fashion Week for the day, and flew out that night to do the Chanel show,” said Jenner, who’s emerged as the fashion world’s most in-demand model and lives much of her life in the public eye via Planet Kardashian.
With 30 million followers on Instagram, Jenner plans to post some of the underwear photos on her own page. “The shoot was amazing. Mikael Jansson shot it, and he and I have a good chemistry. Having girls around who are all my friends, the energy was really great,” she said.

People – Leave it to Kendall Jenner to land the coolest possible Calvin Klein campaign. The supermodel-in-training — who’s been in ads for Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Estée Lauder, and who is now a regular in the pages of Vogue — just released the first look at Calvin Klein’s exclusive denim series for cult fave store Opening Ceremony, of which she’s the face.
Shot by Alasdair McLellan in N.Y.C., the ads portray a lank-haired, fresh faced Jenner, 19, wearing throwback denim styles including overalls, athletic sweatshorts and cropped sweatshirts, all emblazoned with the brand’s logo. She also shares screen space with male model Simon Nessman, but let’s be honest, it’s all about Kendall in her Calvins.
“Modeling for Calvin Klein Jeans is really a dream come true,” Jenner said in a statement. “I’ve grown up wearing the brand and seeing the iconic advertising in magazines and on billboards featuring some of the world’s top supermodels. To now be a part of that legacy is truly an honor.”
The collection will run from $58 to $348 and include jeans, tees and joggers, plus unisex items like backpacks and hats. Amazing eyebrows (kind of a hallmark of Calvin Klein models) not included, unfortunately.
Estée Lauder – If we had to pick a single word to describe our new collaboration with the iconic French fashion house, Courrèges, it would be “fun.” The F word was a big part of what design legend André Courrèges instilled into every one of his iconic, Space Age-inspired pieces when he exploded onto the fashion scene in the 1960s with a line-up of little white dresses and silver accessories. Not convinced? Just look at what a good time our spokesmodel Kendall Jenner is having in the above video, in which she co-stars with standout pieces from the range, like the Super Gloss in Rosy Future and Eye Glide Pencil in Silver Streak. With feather-light formulas and insta-collectible packaging, each piece packs the promise of serious color pay-off, and will inject a touch of playfulness into your daily beauty routine.
