Christy and Calvin; Calvin and Christy. Has there ever been a brand/model relationship more indelible and iconic than this? Today, the house announced that they would be reviving it once again for their fall 2013 underwear campaign, with the 44-year-old super posing for the lens of Mario Sorrenti on location in Vieques, Puerto Rico. In light of this news (which warms the cockles of our ’90s-loving hearts), we’re taking a trip down memory lane and looking back at some of the most memorable images of the past 25 years, ever since Irving Penn first shot Christy for Calvin back in 1988.
From the intimacy and minimalism of her Calvin Klein Underwear ads to the family-friendly jubilance of Bruce Weber’s Eternity fragrance images, the model-activist has had a long and varied career with the house, but then, as she jokes to Harper’s Bazaar in this month’s just-released cover story, “Well, I did tell Calvin, with Eternity, ‘If you name something that and you put me on it, what the hell do you expect?’”
Check out 25 photos — including a behind-the-scenes shot from the fall campaign — in the gallery below, and see her flex her modeling muscles for a recent issue of Vogue Paris here:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
