The Men of ‘Moonlight’ Take on a New Role for Calvin Klein

Moonlight, Barry Jenkins’ beautiful story of a gay black man navigating life in a timeless Miami, has been one of the most celebrated films of the year. Winning an Oscar for Best Picture last night (the first film with an LGBTQ story as the focal point to do so), the film cast solely black actors and told a tender story of the gay black experience. Revolutionary not only for its content, but its style as well – think Hype Williams color palettes fused in Miami and Atlanta – the film’s cast is full of beautiful men and women playing complex roles.

Four of the film’s actors – Mahershala Ali, Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders, and Alex Hibbert – are now the faces of Calvin Klein. Drifting from their roles as Chiron at different stages in his life, they are now Gods amongst mortals, men celebrated for their craft and their style, and a symbol of black joy.
