Nyong’o, Ronan bare it all as stars of Calvin Klein campaign

A new fragrance means a new set of models, and the Calvin Klein brand chose two of the most recognizable actors to front its new campaign.

According to ELLE, to help spread the news about the brand’s first fragrance — aptly called “Woman” — under creative director Raf Simons, Calvin Klein selected Lupita Nyong’o and Saoirse Ronan to front its adjoining campaign, which is directed by artist Anne Collier.  Featuring “both striking, minimalist portraits of the award-winning actresses alongside women they have personally been inspired by,” ELLE says “Nyong’o chose Eartha Kitt and Katharine Hepburn, while Ronan picked Sissy Spacek and Nina Simone.”

With a fragrance that Simons says is inspired by “freedom of expression” and “the transmission of strength and inspiration from woman to the next,” ELLE reports that the creative director said its campaign is centered around the theme of embracing and owning one’s femininity.

“The campaign is an exploration of femininity—a group of women bonded by a common thread,” said Simons, “the desire to have the power to create their own identity, and to support and lead the way for those that come after them.”

Jackson to be face of Calvin Klein

From turning heads at the Met Gala to reportedly taking on a new fashion campaign, Paris Jackson is on the fast track to becoming one of the biggest names in fashion.

According to Glamour, the 19 year old is said to be the newest face of Calvin Klein, reports The New York Post, making this her first major fashion campaign; the Post says the deal will “make Paris the new face and body of Calvin Klein. The deal—which is just about to be signed—is huge, worth seven figures, many millions. Expect to see Paris in huge ad campaigns and on many red carpets in Calvin Klein.”

Showing up to the Met Gala on May 1 with new head of design for Calvin Klein Raf Simons, Glamour says Jackson wore a ” black cutout gown from the Appointment label for the event.”

With all signs pointing in support of Jackson’s rumored contract with Calvin Klein, we’ll keep our fingers crossed until its confirmed.

 

Beauty beyond age

Beauty comes in all forms, and a recent Calvin Klein underwear ad is proving this to be true.

According to The Cut, 73-year-old model Lauren Hutton is starring in brand-new ads for the famous underwear’s spring 2017 campaign alongside a host of others that were hand-selected by the campaign’s photographer, Sofia Coppola.

With ads showcasing the likes of ” Kirsten Dunst, Nathalie Love, Laura Harrier, Rashida Jones, Maya Hawke (daughter of Ethan), and Chase Sui Wonders (niece of Anna),” The Cut says this isn’t the first time Hutton has strut her stuff with some big names. Just last year, The Cut reports that Hutton walked the runway arm-in-arm with Gigi Hadid for the Bottega Veneta show.

Brown signs with IMG

Millie Bobby Brown is not only known as 11 on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, she is also becoming one to watch on red carpets. As People reports, the actress has worn a custom Armani creation to the SAG Awards and scored a place as the face of the new Calvin Klein by Appointment line — all at 12 years old.

Now, the young star is set to add another item to her fashion resume: a signed model. People reports that Brown officially landed a modeling contract with IMG, a global modeling agency that boasts names such as Chrissy Teigen, Gal Gadot and Hari Nef.

While People says we will have to wait until Brown is the regulation age of 16 to see her take her turn down the runway, we’re pretty sure that — judging by her recent fashion moments — it will be well worth the wait.

Take Her Look [For Less]

New York City plays host to a flock of celebrities, models and designers each time Fashion Week rolls around. And this Fashion Week was no different, with model and actress Emily Ratajkowski stopping by the festivities to host her own star-studded event on Sept. 10 at Soho House in New York City to celebrate her edition of harper by Harper’s Bazaar with the magazine’s executive editor Laura Brown.

Ratajkowski attended the party in what Harper’s Bazaar reports is are Calvin Klein Collection separates — a white crop top and high-waisted wide-legged trousers. She  styled her sleek look with straight hair and soft, natural makeup.

Ratajkowski’s white-hot crop top ensemble is the definition of chic, but if you love this look, you’ll be disappointed to know that the exact Calvin Klein Collection separates remain elusive online. However, other crop tops and pants in the Fall 2015 collection retail anywhere from $850 to $1,150 and from $1,995 to $2,495 respectively. Just because the exact pieces cannot be located doesn’t mean you still can’t recreate her look for yourself, and that’s where we come in — we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate Ratajkowski’s entire look for less than even one piece from Calvin Klein Collection.

First on our shopping list was a strapless crop top worthy enough to be included in our look-alike ensemble, and we found it in the form of the Missguided V Insert Bustier Top from Asos. This top adds an extra detail with its notched hemline, which will bare a bit more of your midsection while still falling at the natural waist to define your shape. For only $44.79, this top will make an affordable foundation from which to build the rest of our look for less.

High-waisted wide-legged trousers will complete our reimagined look, and there’s no better pair for the job than the Premium Crepe Wide Leg Trousers from Missguided. Done in the same wide-legged, high-waisted silhouette, these pants will not only meet the hemline of your crop top to create a defined waist, the legs of the pant will also fall straight from your hips to the floor, creating an elongated, lean shape. These trousers will finish off your look for an easy $60.

Emily Ratajkowski’s all-white Harper’s Bazaar party ensemble may have an elusive price tag, but we’re sure our look-alike outfit is definitely less, coming it at $104.79. Pair your look with a sky-high heel and let your hair fall in a soft, straight style and you’ll have effortlessly recreated Ratajkowski’s look.

Happy Shopping!
