She models the brand's new athletic collection alongside male model Simon Nessman
Another day, another incredible job for Kendall Jenner.
The reality TV star turned model has landed a coveted campaign for the Calvin Klein Jeans Denim Series – a limited-edition athletic collection to be launched in April at Opening Ceremony. The ads, shot by photographer Alasdair McLellan, show her alongside male model Simon Nessman in a selection of dungarees, hoodies, cropped sweatshirts and shorts.
Jenner follows in the footsteps of a pretty impressive series of Calvin Klein Jeans models. Justin Bieber and Lara Stone recently caused a stir when they writhed around for the Spring 2015 campaign, with not much more than Bieber’s tattooed arm to protect Stone’s modesty.
One of the brand’s early stars was Brooke Shields, who was only 15 when she posed for the pictures. In the controversial TV ad, she murmured, “Do you know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.”
But the most legendary Calvin Klein model has to be Kate Moss, who has done a string of ads for the brand, including the famous CK-One campaign of the 1990s. She first worked for Calvin Klein Jeans in 1992, posing topless with a scowling Mark Wahlberg.
Jenner’s modelling career only kicked off 18 months ago, but this prestigious campaign is yet more evidence that she’s going to be a huge fashion star – and that the Kardashian family really isn’t going anywhere.
