As model Lara is unveiled as the exclusive face of Calvin Klein..is she the new Kate Moss?
It was the campaign that made Kate Moss a household name. And 17 years later, Lara Stone has followed in her footsteps to become the exclusive face of Calvin Klein. With sultry poses and the same androgynous style, the Dutch model could almost be mistaken for Kate, who attracted attention in the 1993 ad for her waif-like frame, a look which made her the poster girl for ‘heroin chic.’
Calvin Klein, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation, unveiled the company’s Fall 2010 global advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein Collection, ck Calvin Klein, and Calvin Klein Jeans, which will each be seen in a mix of media around the world later this fall.
