The Men from Moonlight Have Taken on a New Role As Underwear Models
We couldn’t be more thrilled for everyone involved with Moonlight for their amazing Oscar win, despite the hoopla surrounding it and all of the shock and outrage it sparked. While the cast is surely still riding high on their amazing accomplishments, a few of them have actually already moved on to their next gig. And no, it’s not another film: Several of the film’s biggest stars have actually landed a modeling gig. This isn’t just any old modeling gig, however — the men from Moonlight are now CK underwear models! Yup, Calvin… Klein… underwear… models. *fans self*
Mahershala Ali, who won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Moonlight just days after welcoming a new babe into the world, appears in the brand’s new ads along with 27-year-old Trevante Rhodes, 21-year-old Ashton Sanders, and 12-year-old Alex R. Hibbert. In a campaign called Revelation, the brand’s new creative director, Raf Simons, and photographer Willy Vandeperre have put together a collection of shots that first show little Alex as the young, handsome fella that he is in an age-appropriate cotton crew-neck tee.
But when it comes to Mahershala, Trevante, and Ashton… OMG! The eye-popping pics have surfaced on the brand’s Instagram, and… well, have a look for yourself.
If your jaw is now on the floor, don’t worry: We’re definitely not judging. Now, excuse us while we run to grab a cold shower…
