Quotable: Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa Says Waifs Are So Over

"Calvin Klein originally started the whole waif moment and not much has been done since then ... Lara was our exclusive four years ago. We've never had someone who really represented our houses and all our licensees in the same way. She is very current, very beautiful and very womanly. It's time for that persona…

Calvin Klein Brings Back Iconic Cher Horowitz Dress … For $900

"Clueless" might just be the greatest movie of our time because it's one of the most iconic pop culture references shared by both Generation Y and Generation X. And OK, yeah, I maybe wrote a 20-page term paper on the movie for my senior semiotics seminar, so it's clear I'm obsessed. (Loser!) But, here i…

Quotable: Brooke Shields On Her Iconic Calvin Klein Commerical

"The controversy [over declaring, 'You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.'] didn't surprise me because I'd had experience with it since I was 11. The pants came above my belly button--even the one with my shirt open, you didn't see anything. Compared to the things I'd done before, this was like…

I Would Like To See His …

You know, working at The Frisky isn't easy. We spend hours every day, searching the web for the freakiest men's underwear commercials and the best half-naked gravy wrestlers. It's a hard job, but somebody's got to do it. Thankfully, it's because of our dedication to our work that we are able to bring you gem…

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, Kella…

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]…

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…

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.

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…

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.

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, drunke…

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…

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.

Is Pink The New Black For Men?

For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They've been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and…

Shannen Doherty: Straight To The Top Of The C-List

In her 90210 rise to stardom, Shannen Doherty had it all -- fame, fortune, and the most glamorous bitch face on television. Over a decade later, we’re genuinely surprised Shannen isn’t still in the public eye or happily hitched to some billionaire with a pompadour. But after being a brat and leaving the show that…

Eva Mendes Is Too Sexy For TV

Eva Mendes just can’t catch a break. The beauty with an ugly habit had to postpone being a spokesmodel for Calvin Klein to check into rehab earlier this year. While the fashion house stuck by her in her time of need, now the fragrance commercial she finally made can’t even get on the air because,…
