Fashion & Beauty

Renowned actor and artist Jeremy Pope is making waves in the fashion world as the face of Calvin Klein's highly anticipated 2024 Pride Campaign, aptly named "This Is Love". The campaign, which celebrates diversity, inclusivity, and the LGBTQ+ community, features Pope in the brand's iconic underwear line, showcasing both style and substance alongside Cara Delevingne.


Pope, known for his groundbreaking performances on stage and screen, including roles in "The Inspection", "Hollywood" and "Pose", brings his signature charisma and authenticity to Calvin Klein's latest venture. In an interview with GQ, Pope shared his initial reaction upon learning he would be a part of such a significant campaign.



“When the email came through, I was super, super excited. I immediately texted my dad—because my dad is a professional bodybuilder—and he responded to it with a meal plan,” he says, laughing. “Basically, what that meant for him was, you're going to represent the Popes, so do it well.”

Calvin Klein's "This Is Love" campaign is not only a showcase of stylish underwear but also a platform for important conversations surrounding identity and self-expression.


In an interview with Out, Pope delves deeper into the significance of the campaign and its impact on the LGBTQ+ community and himself.


"It's a marker in my own journey of self-love and self-expression," Pope tells Out.


"Years ago, it would've brought fear or anxiety into my heart and mind thinking about being so visible in this way. What might people think about me or say about me?"



The actor and singer continues, "But I've evolved and I've grown. I feel so fortunate to have lived and survived through some of the toughest moments of my life to arrive at this moment that is about celebrating love, power, my uniqueness, and my gift. I think that my standing firm in that will hopefully be a visible, tangible representation of what self-expression looks like, and feels like, for people out there who might see this campaign."



Calvin Klein's decision to cast Pope as the face of their Pride Campaign is a testament to the brand's commitment to diversity and inclusivity. By featuring Pope, a talented and openly queer artist, Calvin Klein continues to pave the way for greater representation and acceptance within the fashion industry.



As the world celebrates Pride Month and embraces the message of love and acceptance, Calvin Klein's "This Is Love" campaign serves as a powerful reminder that fashion has the power to inspire change and foster a more inclusive society.


With Jeremy Pope at the forefront, this campaign is not only a celebration of style but also a celebration of love, diversity, and the unapologetic expression of self.
