Calvin Klein Himself Shades Kendall Jenner’s Underwear Ads AND Her Older Sister Kim Kardashian!

The 73-year-old admitted to the audience that he’s not a fan of Kenny’s work for the company’s underwear campaign, dishing that — if he were still calling the shots — she wouldn’t have booked the gig at all!

When the designer was asked about the reality star’s involvement in those seXXXy ads, he said:

“You know, I’m really not that familiar with it. I’m honestly not. I’m sure she’s a lovely young woman. It’s not the kind of thing I would have done, even today.”

But, he’s not against ALL the A-listers who are promoting the products. In fact, he absolutely loves Justin Bieber, raving:

“I think they’re very good. So many people wanted to be on a billboard or in an ad or in a commercial, and for sure Justin Bieber wanted to do it. I thought that was really good.”

However, C.K. says it’s not the Biebs’ strong social media presence or millions of faithful followers that make him a good choice:

“When [I say] I like Justin Bieber in the Calvin Klein Underwear [campaign], it’s because I like him not because he’s got millions of followers.”

He actually hates that models get booked primarily because of their digital popularity, continuing:

“Now, models are paid for how many followers they have. They’re booked not because they represent the essence of the designer, which is what I tried to do they’re booked because of how many followers they have online. I don’t think that, long-term, is going to work. I don’t think that’s a great formula for success for the product you’re trying to sell.”


We wonder if the 20-year-old is bummed that the fashion icon is gushing about her good friend’s work, but isn’t impressed with hers!

However, Kendall wasn’t the only member of her famous family getting dragged by the New York native! He also threw some shade at Kim Kardashian West, saying:

“If you take really exquisite photographs of the right people in the right clothes in the right location, and you put it online, that’s fine. Just putting any old clothes on Kim Kardashian, long-term, isn’t going to do a thing.”

Ouch! Quick! Someone get these ladies some ice for those burns!
