Kirsten Dunst, Rashida Jones Talk About First Loves in New Calvin Klein Underwear Campaign

Share Button

In the new Calvin Klein Underwear campaign, Sofia Coppola directs actresses and models in black and white clips talking about their first kisses and crushes, each concluding with the phrase, “Calvin Klein or nothing at all.”

Kirsten Dunst, who’s in Coppola’s upcoming film Beguiled and has had a working relationship with the director since 1999’s The Virgin Suicides, talked about her first kiss, which happened in an elevator at the Washington Monument and came out of nowhere.


“I was in love with his best friend, so I was really upset afterwards,” Dunst explained. In another clip, Kirsten reflects on how Coppola had always loved her unusually pointy teeth, and how she’s a little sad that they’re “fixed” now after she chipped one of them.

Rashida Jones, another model for the campaign, tells the story of stalking a British actor she’d developed a crush upon, and leaving her beeper number outside his trailer.



“Sir, please, if you would, to reach me on my beeper number,” laughs Jones.

Other models in the campaign include Laura Hutton, Nathalie Love, Maya Hawke (daughter of Ethan), Laura Harrier, and Chase Sui Wonder.

Fashion, Supermodels, Celebs, and Collectors Love Jeff Koons

He’s made a name for himself becoming one of the most successful living American artist, selling his shiny works for millions of dollars, and is a discussion for bitter art students and fashion lovers alike. Jeff Koons has had collaboration with H&M — something that is regularly reserved for fashion houses like Alexander Wang or superstars like David Beckham. Jeff sealed the deal when he caught the attention of Lady Gaga’s lil’ monsters after designing her album cover for ArtPop.

The artist’s name is becoming omnipresent in pop culture, so it only makes sense that Koons is nearly a celeb himself. See below to further explore the phenomenon.

It is Halloween, so in America that means the holiday season starts tomorrow. In preparation, we’re watching (and rewatching) Sofia Coppola’s four odd, sweet, endearing videos for Gap’s Dress Normal campaign, featuring the tagline “you don’t have to get them to give them Gap”.

Get yourself in the holiday spirit and watch them now:

Celebrating the Beauty of Sofia Coppola on Her Birthday

Share Button

As the daughter to one of cinema’s most treasured directors, filmmaking was in Sofia Coppola’s blood. And after beginning her career as an actress when she was just an infant in The Godfather, Sofia continued working in films well into her twenties, making appearances in everything from The Outsiders and Frankenweenie, to Peggy Sue Got Married and The Godfather Part III. But in 1998 she made the leap over to filmmaking with her short film, Lick the Star before embarking on her directorial debut The Virgin Suicides. Not only does that film hold up as one of her greatest cinematic achievements, but it established her own auteuristic aesthetic.

With each of her films, Coppola brings you into her unique world with an atmospheric style that’s full of melancholy but always delicate and beautiful and impeccably scored. Whether she’s telling the tale of fantastical depressive teens or lavish 18th-century royalty, there’s always a touch that feels distinctly hers. It’s a soft-lit dreamy quality with a heavy-heart and weary eye, that has proved she is much more than just Francis Ford’s daughter.

And as today is Sofia’s birthday, we’ve rounded up some memorable moments from her oeuvre of gorgeous films. Enjoy.

Louis Vuitton x Sofia Coppola Cruise 2012 Bags Are Perforated Perfection

Share Button

Like most things Sofia Coppola touches, her latest collaboration with French fashion house Louis Vuitton is effortlessly cool. Inspired by old school LV, the cruise 2012 accessories collection is filled with bags from the luxury label’s past, but are spruced up with sportswear details, like bright hues and perforations. 

Even the classic monogrammed Saumur ($1,950) and Chantilly ($1,640) handbags are back, but still feel very new, thanks to the colored trim and interior, exposed through diamond-shaped cutouts. Speaking of Chantilly, the pictured Flore Chantilly in turquoise or black ($2,580) is guaranteed to be a bestseller for it’s on-trend compact style and classic Coppola vibe.

The collection also features Saumur clutches in monogram or white, and a monogrammed beach bag with a playful touristy theme. See the full range here

BlackBook Tracks #46: Music Videos Of The Week

Share Button

Here’s a selection of music videos that were released this week that don’t involve Lily Allen, because you’ve probably already seen that one. Also, you’ve probably read eight different takedowns/celebrations of it. Spoiler alert: there’s no ironic or unironic twerking involved in the videos below, sorry.

Phoenix – “Chloroform”
Lest you forget that Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars and Sofia Coppola form one of entertainment’s top power couples, the filmmaker has stepped in to direct a music video for her husband’s band. The French quartet’s capping off another banner year with the latest single from Bankrupt!, “Chloroform,” a mournful tribute to cruel love. The sepia-toned clip features Coppola’s favorite subject, crying white girls.

Keep Shelly In Athens – “Oostende”
Greek synth-rockers Keep Shelly In Athens soundtrack the kind of passion worth crossing an ocean for, as shown in their new video for “Oostende.” Directed by Brendan Canty and Conal Thomson, the clip follows a couple whose love might be written in the stars, but still can’t quite connect. At the very least, they get to see some gorgeous landscapes along the way. Keep Shelly In Athens’ powerful album At Home is out now on Cascine.

SZA – “Ice Moon”
Over the course of this year, SZA has inducted as a member of the new R&B generation. Hailing from St. Louis, the singer’s been self-releasing work, but that’s not going to last any longer with her quietly attention-getting tunes. The “Ice Moon” video follows SZA on a walk through the woods that’s as dreamy as the track, her fragile vocals both crystal and cotton candy.

Charli XCX – “SuperLove” (Yeasayer remix)
British pop princess Charli XCX is one of the hardest-working people in music, releasing the single “SuperLove” hot on the heels of her debut LP True Romance earlier this year. While the original already got its own video featuring motorcycle gangs and Japanese nightlife, it’s all eyes on Charli for this slowed-down take, brought to you by Brooklyn indie rockers Yeasayer. True Romance is out now on Asylum.

Lucius – “Tempest”
Have you ever been trapped in a house where everything’s a little bit off and you’re being followed by a man who looks like some kind of cult leader and also maybe you killed a guy? No? Experience all that and more in the fever dream that is Leblanc + Cudmore’s video for Lucius’ “Tempest.” The 60s-inspired indie rockers are on a roll after releasing their debut album Wildewoman earlier this year on Mom + Pop.
