And the Good News keeps on coming! After releasing her debut album in November, Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion has found the time to pen an op-ed for the New York Times advocating for Black women, collaborate with Fashion Nova on a capsule collection, remix “34+35” with Ariana Grande and Doja Cat, chat with Auntie Maxine Waters about misogynoir, star in Coach’s Fall 2021 ad campaign, and now the hottie is stripping down to her skivvies with Calvin Klein.
Hot Girl Meg tells Vogue she was a huge fan of the brand when she was growing up. “I really liked that swag in the early 90s, when I would see the old campaigns for the jeans or the Calvin Klein underwear and bras,” the 26-year old said. “When I grew up, I was like, ‘one day, I want to [model for Calvin Klein]—I don’t know how I’m gonna do it, but I want to do it.’ In high school, I would definitely wear my pants a little low sometimes, so that people could see my Calvin Klein underwear. And to be a part of it now as Megan Thee Stallion, I’m like, wow, things really come full circle. I told myself I’d be on a Calvin Klein billboard and that actually happened. I’m so grateful.”
Per the release, announcing the campaign on Wednesday, March 3: “Embracing Calvin Klein’s minimalism as a canvas for creative exploration, this season’s campaign strips back to the essentials. Consciously crafted staples such as the perfect white tee, archival/classic denim silhouettes and the Brand’s iconic monogram underwear offer the possibility of limitless self-expression. They become a Blank Canvas. Photographer Mario Sorrenti and director Terence Nance capture the storytellers, visionaries, and creators of today telling their stories through intimate and surreal visuals, dialogue and movement.”
In addition to baring (just about) all for everyone to see, Megan joins She’s Gotta Have It actor Anthony Ramos, storyteller Janaya Future Khan, Jamaican musician Koffee, and more to explore the feeling of letting go in a video for the brand. “I’ve been meaning to ask you,” Thee Stallion asks as the video opens. “What makes you vulnerable?” Ramos asks next. “We gotta get back to that, we gotta get back to play, that feeling of letting go, that freedom and maybe, you know, we might get hurt along the way but something great might happen, too.”
If it’s anything like this campaign, we’re inclined to agree.
