Margot Robbie and Frank Ocean star in new Calvin Klein campaign

Margot Robbie and Frank Ocean are among the stars to front Calvin Klein's upcoming autumn (16) campaign.

The new additions to the collection were announced via a video on the brand's Snapchat account on Tuesday (05Jul16).


In addition to The Wolf Of Wall Street star and R&B singer, other faces fronting the new collection include rapper Young Thug, Colombian soccer star James Rodriguez, Henry Rollins, Vogue creative director Grace Coddington, Vine star Cameron Dallas and model Kate Moss, who has been with Calvin Klein for years.


In the SnapChat video, each star shares their ideas on love, with Margot describing it as "painful" and "terrifying", while Kate says romantic love is good for "diamonds".


Margot was recently tapped as the face of Calvin Klein's fragrance Deep Euphoria, the latest offering in the Euphoria perfume range.


She previously told Women's Wear Daily that she vividly remembers the brand's advertisements from nearly two decades ago, which included her fellow fall collection star Kate.


"I loved the campaigns featuring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss in the early '90s," Margot gushed to WWD. "Yeah, they were provocative, but the simplicity made them so cool. Calvin Klein has always felt so effortless. Effortlessly cool, effortlessly sexy, effortlessly sophisticated. Never trying too hard. I think that’s what I love about it so much."


With a younger, more driven female audience in mind with this product, Vincent Brun, senior vice president of global marketing of Calvin Klein Fragrances, Coty Inc., knew Focus actress Margot was the one to promote it.


"That’s why we went for Margot Robbie," he smiled. "She embodies a young generation of empowered independent women. She’s very Calvin Klein. She’s very sensual but at the same time, she’s sophisticated."
