New York, February 14-18 – Calvin Klein really brought out the stars this Fashion Week, at both their men’s and women’s fashion shows.  While none of the brand’s famously sexy underwear was on the runway at Sunday’s menswear show, three of the models featured in the newest Calvin Klein underwear ad campaign graced the front row: Twilight’s Kellan Lutz, True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks and Japanese soccer star Hidetoshi Nakata. We quizzed some other studly guys at the show who have not been fortunate enough to land an underwear campaign.  Ryan Phillippe didn’t hesitate when we raised the specter of appearing in billboards in his skivvies.  “I would consider it, yeah,” he said.  “It’s a great company, and they seem to take care of the people that they hire, so, um, yeah,” he said.  “I like them; I like Calvin Klein a lot.”  Lanky Lee Pace just laughed when we asked if he’d drop trou for an ad campaign.  “It’s so not on my stratosphere, the idea of doing one of those ads,” he said.  “I mean, they would never ask, it’s never crossed my mind.  Ever.”

Thursday’s women’s show was equally star-studded with Kate Bosworth, Kerry Washington, Helena Christensen and the stunning Isabel Lucas in the front row.  Actress Naomi Watts told us that for her, essentially all photo shoots, no matter the state of undress, are awkward.  “I prefer to move around in front of a motions camera, not a stills camera,” Watts said.  “So I always feel a bit frozen.”  Surprise guest Whoopi Goldberg insisted she’s never been uncomfortable in a photo shoot.  “Nobody’s ever asked me to be anything but myself,” she said.

On Thursday evening, Calvin Klein capped Fashion Week with a glamorous party at the meatpacking district space owned by the late Robert Isabel.
