what's for sale?

When I was in New York last week, I saw the steamy threesome Calvin Klein billboard. (Obviously, it's hard not to miss it.) Since the days of CK Underwear ads, Calvin Klein has always screamed sex, at least to me. And it appears Steven Meisel has rediscovered the concept of sex-sells with these new ads featuring Eva Mendes.

Honestly, I wouldn't have known it was Eva. Perhaps that's because I am too busy noticing how much of her "whoa-ha" is showing. You can see Eva's other CK ad here.

Oh yeah, I remember thinking that ad was a little too racy. I can't believe they put it up on a billboard.

I guess CK ads have always been known for their shock-ish value...but I think after all the sex in movies and tv, I'm pretty much immune to this racy image. And that's too bad!
But Eva looks hot though! No denying that. :)

If you have the great fortune of possessing a hot body like this, then by all means, be proud of it! Gorgeous ad! Racy, yes. But we all know that sex sells!

LOL. That Calvin Klein billboard is seriously the talk of the country right now. LOL.
I was right by there on Tuesday. I should've checked it out. It should probably be there. I think I'm going to be around Houston, so I'll check it out if I am.

this ad does not make me want anything by CK. i'm not a prude, i just don't like the blatant sexuality of the campaign.
xox
