Many OneModelPlace.com models and members will be surprised to learn that it has been 30 years since anything came between Brooke Shields and her Calvins! The audacious advertising campaign for jeans helped the teen model-turned-actress become a media sensation, and three decades later Shields has revealed that she can still fit into the same pair of pants.
According to PopEater.com, Shields told Ellen DeGeneres that she’s still able to slip into the same pair of denims she sported at age 15 in her controversial Calvin Klein Jeans ad. ”They didn’t look pretty,” she admits about tying them on again, “but they fit.”
The racy 1980 commercial opens with the young Shields whistling “My Darling Clementine” before suggestively declaring, “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.”
The 45-year-old actress explained, “It was one of the first times they had sort of smart and provocative television commercials,” adding that the promo was originally intended to be played in movie theaters.
