The Unexpected Item Brooke Shields Wore to the Calvin Klein Show

The Unexpected Item Brooke Shields Wore to the Calvin Klein Show
Alec Kugler

If 500 Days of Summer taught us anything, it’s that expectation rarely lines up with reality. So was the case when we walked into Brooke Shields’ NYC home an hour before she left for Calvin Klein’s Spring ’18 show. While one might assume it’d be all about hair, makeup, and finding the perfect accessories, Brooke and her team were busy working…to help solve her daughter’s math homework. This was all in between spritzes, brush strokes, and an “is this see-through?” style dilemma.

The chaotic situation was actually quite telling: Brooke is often—and rightfully so—labeled an icon, but she isn’t *just* an icon. She’s a Princeton grad, a true fan of fashion, and, most importantly, a doting mom (one who has a very practical tip for dealing with high heel pain).

While we stayed away from anything to do with fractions, we did play fly-on-the-wall as Brooke prepped for the event, asking her about the brand, her original CK campaign, and the outfit she wore while sitting front row.

How the getting-ready process isn’t what it seems like:
“This is pressure to me. But I’ve learned over the years that to alleviate the pressure, I call in the troops. The cavalry comes in, and they all start whipping out their tricks. The difference now is instead of doing my homework, which I always used to do, I’m helping my kids with theirs. I wish that I had the kind of lifestyle where it was just sort of a daily occurrence, but really, who’s got the time? I can’t really do my hair that well, and I’ve made everybody remind me not to pretend I’m a makeup artist. But I do think people misconstrue this This is a job. This is more of a stress than ‘Ooh I’m getting ready for the prom.’ There’s an excitement, but it’s more of a relief when it’s over and you haven’t had a major problem.”
