If the Oscars somehow left you wanting more “Moonlight,” you’re in luck: The men of the Best Picture winner are front and center in a men’s underwear campaign. And this announcement isn’t a mistake.
Calvin Klein’s Spring 2017 campaign features the stars of Barry Jenkins‘ film, which also took home best adapted screenplay. The four actors, Mahershala Ali, Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes, got together with photographer Willy Vanderperre in January. The men who played Little (Hibbert), Chiron (Sanders) and Black (Rhodes) wore Calvin Klein on the red carpet last night.
Check out the first photos from the campaign:
Director Jenkins had nothing but praise for the way the “La La Land” team handed over the Best Picture statuettes after Sunday’s historic Oscar screw-up that had stars gasping at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
“The folks from ‘La La Land’ were so gracious,” Jenkins said. “I can’t imagine being in their position and having to do that.”
The disaster unfurled when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read out “La La Land,” as the Best Picture winner. Moments later, apologies abounded as ceremony host Jimmy Kimmel, Beatty and others explained that in fact “Moonlight” had won.
The “La La Land” winners stepped aside, and Beatty explained that he thought he and co-presenter Faye Dunaway had gotten the wrong envelope. (Oscars accounting firm PwC later apologized, saying the wrong envelope had indeed made its way into Beatty and Dunaway’s hands.)
