Lauren Hutton, 73, Appears In New Calvin Klein Underwear Ad Directed By Sofia Coppola
Laruen Hutton’s beauty knows no age. At 73, the model turned actress, appeared in Calvin Klein underwear for the clothing company’s newest ad campaign.
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.
The ad is directed by Sofia Coppola (The Bling Ring, Lost in Translation). Coppola reportedly hand-picked Hutton to be involved in the project. Hutton has been a friend of the Coppola family for nearly 30 years. Kirsten Dunst and Rashida Jones also appear in the ad.
Hutton began her career as a model in the ‘60s. She has appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine a record 26 times. She was also the face of Revlon cosmetics in the ‘70s for almost the entirety of the decade.
The Calvin Klein ad comes at a time of career revitalization, as far as Hutton’s modeling is concerned – she appeared on the catwalk during Milan’s Fashion Week in 2016 and was featured in campaigns for clothing company J. Crew.
Coppola also directed mini advertisements where women from the original tell stories from their past – most have to do with men.
