Rolling Stone featured a short article about this campaign in June 1999:

“What comes between Matador labelmates Liz Phair and Jon Spencer? Nothing but their Calvins.

The sizzling neo-blues rocker and sexy songstress are among the beautiful musical people recently recruited by Calvin Klein for a print ad campaign for his cK and cK Jeans clothing lines. Also lined up for the high-profile gig are Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, rapper Foxy Brown, Garbage’s Shirley Manson, Hole’s Melissa Auf der Maur, Marvelous 3’s Butch Walker and Orgy’s Ryan Shuck, among other mid-level hipsters. Details are scant about what items will actually be modeled. Manson’s representative, however, says the coquettish Scot will don some minimalist clothing, but “will absolutely not be modeling underwear.”

This isn’t the first time Klein has gone the rocker route: two years ago, he employed suitably waifish Royal Trux singer Jennifer Herrema in a print campaign.” –
