Actress Zoe Saldana, best known as Neytiri in James Cameron’s Avatar, is trading in the blue bodypaint for some swish new undies.
Saldana today became the latest celeb to model Calvin Klein Underwear for the iconic label’s fall/winter 2010-11 collection.
In the promotional photo for CKU’s new Envy lingerie line, shot by photographer Mikael Jansson, Saldana strips off her Na’vi blue skin and slips on a sexy lace number. The actress, of Puerto Rican and Dominican roots, joins other celeb spokesmodels in the CKU stable, including actor Kellan Lutz and sultry actress/bombshell Eva Mendes.
The Envy collection consists of sensual lingerie that creates a more revealing silhouette while providing minimal coverage for a sleek and sexy look. A few pieces from the Envy line can already be found online at cku.com.
There’s no doubt that her fiancée Keith Britton is not surprised that beautiful Zoe was tapped to be the latest bod to front CK’s new collection, and it seems that Chief Creative Officer of Calvin Klein, Bob Mazzoli, also shares similar sentiments: “Zoe brings the campaign to life, and her universal appeal will enable us to continue to expand our dialogue with our consumers worldwide.”
Always looking impeccably polished on the red carpet in designer duds (recently sporting a sleek Calvin Klein dress to the Met Costume Institute Gala), what did the star have to say of getting down to her skivvies for her new gig?
“Calvin Klein has always put forth such beautifully executed campaigns. It’s very exciting for me to be associated with such an iconic, globally recognized brand like Calvin Klein Underwear.”
While we’ve been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the 32-year-old’s sizzling new campaign (I swear, men all over the world are praising CKU right now), we’ll have to wait until October to see the rest of the ads on billboards and in magazines.
