I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite denim trends through the years. It’s always good to have some new (or old) eye candy… I am especially a fan of Mark Wahlberg in CK- any chance to get him half naked is a good thing indeed.
Going back to the early 80s and 90s, when jeans became a fashion statement in addition to being a staple… Here are some of Calvin Klein Jeans ads – always racy, always pushing the envelope, and always, ALWAYS hot.
Calvin Klein is known for their jeans as well as their underwear, now they’re featuring a new line that combines the best of both worlds. The new line, called the Body Line, will feature styles for both men and women that will focus on enhancing the body, taking hints from their lingerie fit.
Creative Director Kevin Carrigan says the inspiration behind the line was that “I wanted to launch a sexy jean for Calvin.” Carrigan also explained that in recent seasons, denim factories have been more concerned with finishes, from embellishments to varying washes, rather than the technology of how the jeans are designed for the body. “It’s a study in fit to make her look sexy,” he said.

Kim Kardashian poses for Radar Magazine’s homage to the classic (and notorious) 1980 Calvin Klein ad campaign starring a 15-year old Brooke Shields. In this photoshoot, Kim wears some of our favorite denim lines.
Said Kim: “If Paris Hilton thinks my butt looks gross I really don’t care. At least I have a butt.”
I’ll leave any possibly snarky comments about Kim to our readers. I mean, you go up against Brooke Shields, face of early Calvin Klein and fashion icon, and you better be ready to face a little criticism. Wonder what Brooke Shields thinks about Kim’s photoshoot!

SHOWS ARE WORTH GOING TO AFTER ALL: What does turning up at a fashion show get an actress beyond a free dress, glass of Champagne and gift bag? Well, maybe an ad campaign — just ask Kate Bosworth, who landed the job for Calvin Klein Jeans after she attended the spring show for Collection in New York in September and cohosted the postshow dinner for Francisco Costa. “She’s so loyal,” said Malcolm Carfrae, senior vice president, global communications. “After the show, she came and met with virtually everyone [at Calvin Klein].”
For her part, Bosworth said that “to be featured in a Calvin Klein Jeans campaign, with its history of iconic imagery, is very exciting for me.” While the actress appears regionally in China for Coach, this is her first global campaign…”
We love Kate’s fresh look for CK! She looks amazing in the ads!
