As Iggy Azalea once said, “You should want a bad bitch like this” and she was clearly talking about Lara Stone. The Dutch bombshell took some time away from Calvin Klein but now she’s back. I remember running into her on set for the F/W 2012 campaign thinking how she seemed slightly awkward in person. Somehow, I still found myself picking my jaw up from the floor when I saw the finished campaign. That woman, with all of her Bardot appeal, is pure magic in front of a camera.
This time around, Stone poses with Matthew Terry to create more bewitching images captured by photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Flipping through a magazine, it was actually a shot of Matthew tugging his Calvin’s down that made me pause as I stood on a crowded 4 Express train surrounded by strangers. Finally, I turned the page and there he is with Lara stretched out. I can’t help but stare again and I start wondering if the slightly older woman next to me who’s giving me glances thinks I’m some sort of pervert. No, lady. I just like Calvin Klein!
Why? Because their various brand campaigns can bring a level sexiness (who could forget Christy Turlington’s magnificent return to billboards with that body last year?) and this is yet another successful example for them to add to the fold.
