List Rules Steamy, sexy, cool? Vote up the best Calvin Klein ads. Vote down any that seem ridiculous.

Calvin Klein ads are known for their sex appeal and simplicity. They are most often black and white photos featuring famous models and celebrities wearing nothing more than Calvin Klein underwear or Calvin Klein jeans. Can the 2015 Kendall Jenner Calvin Klein thong ad rival the most iconic Calvin Klein ads of all-time? Only the crowd can say: vote up the best Calvin Klein ads below.

Calvin Klein ads became "a thing" when a 15-year-old model named Brooke Shields caused an uproar with her suggestive delivery of the now famous tagline in a 1981 TV spot, "You want to know what becomes between me and my Calvins? Nothing." The companion Brooke Shields Calvin Klein print ad also caused a stir - the actress wore a shirt held on by a single button, and of course, her Calvin Klein jeans. 

Supermodels Christy Turlington and Kate Moss dominated Calvin Klein underwear ads in the '80s and '90s. Mark Walberg's Calvin Klein ad (hello abs!) proved Calvin Klein ads aren't all about hot women. Dimon Housou and Eva Mendes showed the world that Calvin Klein underwear looks great on black and brown skin tones too.

The brand tries to stay current, drafting popular, sexy stars from every decade, and it usually succeeds. The Justin Bieber Calvin ad, however, became a victim of Photoshop and Internet memes. One could argue that all the Justin Bieber parodies prove that the brand is still relevant, as that's what the cool kids are up to these days.
