Today in TV History: Brooke Shields and her Calvin Klein jeans

CBS banned a commercial in 1980 featuring then 15-year-old Brooke Shields in tight Calvin Klein jeans, who sat in a suggestive pose and delivered the famous line, “Do you know what comes between me and my Calvin’s? Nothing.”

The ad was so provocative for its time that the network refused to broadcast it.

I worked with Brooke this past summer and discovered what a terrific sense of humor she has.  Going back to look at many of her CK commercials now, it’s easy to see why she is so successful in her career.  Besides the obvious beauty, her quirky humor is always present 🙂
