Brooke Shields is baring it all in blue jeans, more than four decades after making fashion history, and courting controversy, in Calvin Klein denim. Jordache’s spring 2022 ad features the supermodel and actress, 56, wearing slim, flared, and straight designs from the brand’s latest range.
Shields not only went topless in one photo, but she also imitated some of her signature CK moves, creating postures on the floor in Jordache jeans and a ringer tee. Cass Bird shot the campaign, and Shields was adamant that the photos be free of Photoshop.
“It was important for you to see this is my 56-year-old body and to fight the retouching,” she told People. “I’m always like, ‘You better keep it honest.’ And we did.”
“There’s something about owning your sexuality at this age that is on point for where we are today,” Shields said of skipping a shirt for a chunk of the session. Shields said in a 2021 Vogue interview that she was inexperienced at the time when she made waves in her Calvins at 15 years old, describing the criticism to that campaign as shocking and ridiculous.
She didn’t believe it had anything to do with her underwear. She didn’t believe it was of a sexual nature. “What comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing,” she remarked of the ad’s famous line. Shields, in fact, went on to model for Calvin Klein once more in 2017, this time in her underwear. That’s an example of taking serious ownership. Take a look at her pictures below.
