Fresh off their shocking and historic Best Picture win at Sunday’s Academy Awards, the cast of Moonlight continues to wow us—this time as the face of Calvin Klein’s new spring campaign: Revelation. Oh, and did we mention that they’re modeling in their underwear?

Just look at Best Supporting Actor Mahershala Ali (and all-around chocolate God) serve up utter perfection in his set of pics.

Meanwhile, all three actors who played “Chiron” in the film also took part of the shoot, including Trevante Rhodes, who is giving us fever with this one. Can someone fan us off?

#More @calvinklein Spring 2017 Calvin Klein Underwear campaign

Ashton Sanders, 21, looks like a seasoned model in his spread.

And here’s 12-year-old Alex Hibbert looking adorable and stylish.

Our personal favorite: All three “Chirons” showing us #BlackCool for days.

This campaign totally makes sense given that most of the cast of Moonlight (minus Janelle Monet) were dressed by Calvin Klein’s Raf Simmons for the Oscars. But the actors’ involvement does a little deeper than that. 

“Since the beginning, Calvin Klein’s underwear imagery has always made big statements about masculinity,” Calvin Klein creative director Pieter Mulier said in a statement.

“The performances of these actors in Moonlight affected us deeply and made big statements about masculinity in a different way. Somehow we wanted to bring the two together.”

As we previously reported, Moonlight made serious history at this year’s Academy Awards: Ali became the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar and it as the first LGBTQ film ever to win Best Picture.

We couldn’t be more proud and happy for this deserving group of actors!

    Haven’t seen Moonlight, but I’ve read what the story is about. So, I’m not so sure these ads are marketing to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I don’t know anything about these actors, but I don’t know if I should be “fanning” like the writer was.

  2. Are you sure that Calvin really said that? People have for years stated that Hilfiger said that same thing on “Oprah,” and he did not. It’s an urban myth. .

      Cuz I hope it’s not true because I have some cute CK dresses and I’d hate to think he was another racists republican white man. Seems hard to be racists when you got the blue/black brothas modeling your clothes in ads you sponsored lol.
