A series of Calvin Klein ads for the brand's 2016 global campaign features iconic celebrities such as Frank Ocean, Kate Moss, Margot Robbie, Young Thug and Bella Hadid.

The Calvin Klein ads use much of the same vintage style that its previous campaigns were captured with, making use of old school product placements and muted color tones throughout. Each was directed by Tyrone Lebon, who focuses in on candid shots of the celebrities as they reveal their insecurities, emotions, opinions and inspirations.

Frank Ocean explains the importance of music in his life and the sense of purpose that he gains from it -- as well as how he uses fantasy in his work. Kate Moss returns for the Calvin Klein ads in a spot where she speaks on broken love, whereas Margot Robbie tells her interviewer that she doesn't feel sexy when she's just being herself.
