Lauren Hutton turns heads at 73 in new lingerie ad

Delta Galil inks Calvin Klein license deal in US and Canada

Delta Galil inks Calvin Klein license deal in US and Canada

An advert for Calvin Klein underwear featuring 73-year-old Lauren Hutton looks set to reignite the debate about ageism in the fashion industry.

Style icon and legendary supermodel Lauren Hutton is pictured here in her garden at home in Venice, California. She says she finally agreed to join one for a ride in his pickup truck. In grainy, black-and-white, minute-long videos, the women, who range in age from 18 to 73, recall smile-inducing moments from their past: their first kisses, cheesy pick-up lines they let slide, their first crushes.

Watch her full ad below.

"I just put together some of my favorite girls", Sofia Coppola explained.

Think back to other Calvin Klein brand ads created in the '80s and '90s, and you'll remember the teenaged Brooke Shields whispering about nothing coming between her and her Calvins, or the teenaged Kate Moss pressed, topless, against a butch and bulky Marky Mark.

Although Hutton appears in the ad for only a few seconds, and is slightly more clothed than her younger counter-parts, her role in the ad seems to be a statement made to combat ageism in the fashion industry. New Zealand-based label Lonely Lingerie recently cast 57-year-old Mercy Brewer to front its Fall 2017 campaign.

"Calvin Klein has represented one of the most iconic brands for almost 50 years, and it is a true honour to partner with them particularly in their renowned underwear and intimate apparel categories", says Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil.
