If you loved Eleven on Stranger Things, you’re about to start seeing a whole lot more of her. Actress Millie Bobby Brown made her debut as a Calvin Klein model this weekend, and she’s looking fierce as ever.
Working alongside a cast that includes Julia Nobis, one of high fashion’s most sought-after runway models, 12-year-old Brown rocks a fringe-y fall-colored top and red pants, giving her signature piercing, Eleven-esque stare.
According to a post on Calvin Klein’s Instagram, the models are “a cast of distinct individuals [bringing] the idea to life: Chosen for who they are, where an essential strength of character is key. Whether famous or unknown, all are treated equally.”
The collection is unique. It’s the first from Raf Simons, chief creative officer at Calvin Klein since August 2016. And it’s a complete departure from CK’s usual offerings. The collection, called Calvin Klein By Appointment, is a made-to-measure line available exclusively by appointment in New York, where all garments are handcrafted. Essentially, CKBA takes Clavin Klein’s existing celebrity by-appointment service and opens it up to everyday people.
Plus, the collection dropped totally unexpectedly — no prior announcement, no buildup. Just a Beyoncé-style ambush. In fact, style watchers didn’t expect to see a first collection from Simons until next month at New York Fashion Week, so CKBA really took the fashion world by surprise.
“Calvin Klein is not only about iconic underwear and jeans — it’s about so much more,” said Simons in a press release. He added, “[CKBA] is very much about celebrating the American woman and American fashion.”
The collection includes 14 pieces inspired by American fashions from the 1920s through present day, and the online, newspaper, and billboard ads were shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre, known for his highly stylized portraits and fashion editorials.
