Kellan Lutz Wants To Show You His Underpants

I don’t know. Maybe there’s something in the air? It’s a guys-rolling-around-in-their-underpants videos kind of a week, I think. Yesterday, it was my boyfriend Ruslan. Today, it’s “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz. Frankly, I don’t know about his acting chops, but his ability to look good in his undies is Academy Award-winning. Suffice to say, Kellan is the 21st century’s Mark Wahlberg, but without the Boston accent. According to the man in the manties, Calvin Klein’s X underwear is “straight-up comfortable” and “holds you together.” And what, pray tell, does he mean by that? Since I don’t wear briefs, I could not tell you. It keeps your zucchini with your kiwis? It makes your butt cheeks tight? Who knows! I’ll believe whatever this buthisface tells me.

An Oil Spill Never Looked So Sexy!

Sure, Eva Mendes is oiled up and topless with model Jamie Dornan in a new crop of Calvin Klein ads, but I’d much rather stare at this other CK specimen. Doesn’t he remind you of Djimon Hounsou in Janet Jackson‘s “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” video? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Introducing “Twilight” Manties Model Kellan Lutz

What does Marky Mark of The Funky Bunch have in common with Emmett from “Twilight“? Manties! Kellan Lutz will be slipping on the boxer-briefs Mark Wahlberg made famous for Calvin Klein in the ’90s. From what we’ve seen, Lutz is quite photogenic and his abs are poppin’, but can he fill the shoes underwear of the beefed-up rapper-turned-model-turned-actor? You be the judge when the campaign comes to a billboard near you soon. [NYMag] Keep reading »

Calvin Klein’s Latest Raunchy Ad, Duh, Offends Many

There is a large piece of advertising space on Houston Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. For as long as I can remember, that particular wall has been THE place to put your advertisement if you want to ignite controversy. It’s large, it’s in an extremely prominent area, and it does not go unnoticed by anyone. Calvin Klein has put many an ad here and all of them have pissed people off, including his latest, which has some residents crowing about pornography. The ad features Eva Mendes and Frisky Crush Of The Day, Jamie Dornan, posing barely clothed, and she is in the beginning motions of removing his underoos. To be honest, it is sexy, but it’s a lot tamer than some of the ads that have occupied the space, including one which implied a massive orgy! And now I am going to hop on the subway, so I can see Jamie at 1,000 times life size in person. Ciao! Keep reading »

Giving New Meaning To “Bachelor Pad”

I don’t know why I’m so flabbergasted, and, dare I say, turned off, by these new padded crotch Calvin Klein jeans for men that promise “body-defining fit for an enhanced profile.” After all, we ladies have padded push-up bras, Spanx, and a variety of other undergarments that create the illusion of a body blessed by God and exercised to perfection. So, I guess it’s a little sexist of me to suggest men leave the smoke and mirrors to us … but that’s just the way I feel. I’m not alone here, right? I mean, do you guys agree with me? It’s just … it’s weird to think of a man wearing padded jeans. Like, what is he trying to hide in there, anyway? Or, not hide in there, as the case may be.

Trend Watch: Himbos Are The New Must-Have Fashion Accessory

According to New York magazine, the male version of bimbos, himbos, are the new high-fashion trend. Chanel’s taste maker, Karl Lagerfeld, says the must-have accessory in ads are prop boy toys. Just check out his own luvah Baptiste Giabiconi, pictured here, being strung along by Jerry Hall. And on her other arm, she’s got that glamorous white Chanel bracelet— outfit complete! Of his angle, Mr. Lagerfeld told WWD:

“It’s very simple. They put the girls in a more lifestyle situation. Lonely girls can be a little sad in a fashion story. They dress not only for other girls, but also to please men. The popularity is sudden because there are a few new faces.”

Yes, bring on the fresh hot dudes! Hey, I’m a feminist, but I’m also egalitarian. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited about this objectification of men (as you might have been able to tell by the underwear models slideshow). And now high-end designers are telling me I’m not alone. Is this trend a sign that women are finally earning their market share by having their half-naked mantasies photographed? Feast your eyes on more of this tasty man-candy trend, after the jump! Keep reading »

We Heart Calvin Klein’s Threesome Billboard

Those of you who don’t live in downtown New York may not be familiar with the new Calvin Klein Jeans billboard gracing a corner in Soho. Let me explain: the thing is enormous, taking up the entire side of a building, and its four scantily-clad participants look just about ready to have a tired, drunken threesome. (Well, three of them might, anyway. The fourth dude is just so over it and needs a nap on the ground.) In short, it is incredibly hot in a sweaty, semi-trashy way. And sometimes, that’s all you need.

Is This Fake Calvin Klein Bra Ad Sexist Or Just Clever?

Is advertising that uses women’s sexuality always sexist? Feminsting.com blogger Samhita says this advertising student’s project is “sexist, voyeuristic and pervy.” It’s a fake Calvin Klein billboard featuring a woman wearing a white blouse. In the sunshine the white blouse looks normal, but when it rains the billboard morphs and reveals the model’s black bra underneath, like a real white blouse would if it were to get wet. Clever, huh?

We’re no Don Draper or Peggy Olson, but we think the two advertising students behind this project were really thinking outside the box with this idea. According to the duo, they hoped their idea would “give a life to Calvin Klein’s sexy feeling.” This billboard certainly accomplishes that goal. What do you think? Tell us in the comments.

Customized Pillowcases For Me And You

At Calvin Klein Collection’s flagship store on Madison Avenue, the windows currently display pillowcases silk-screened with the names of famous duos such as Barack and Michelle, John and Yoko, Siegfried and Roy, and Thelma and Louise. Created by artist Jonathan Horowitz as part of his “Pillow Talk Cases,” the cases are actually for sale, with proceeds going to the Art Production Fund. While we’re all about donating to good causes, we think we might steal Horowitz’s idea for our own purposes and get pillowcases customized (or write on a set with a Sharpie) to correspond to our lives. Amelia’s will read, “Amelia” and “Lucca,” while mine will say, “Catherine” and “Catherine’s imaginary boyfriend.” [CasaSugar] Keep reading »

The Calvin Klein Orgy Commercial That’s Too Hot For (American) TV

Holy hotness, does this Calvin Klein commercial make me want to go out and buy some jeans to wear when I’m writhing around on the couch topless with a few hot models straddling me. It’s been banned in the U.S. but will, of course, be shown in way less prudish Europe. Keep reading »
