Brooke Shields talked to the New York Post about her memorable style moments, including her 1980 campaign for Calvin Klein jeans, when she was 15 years old:

"I look at these pictures now and I still am sort of shocked that they became so legendary. For me, it was just a huge job I went to after school at 3 o'clock. The one with my leg up, I just remember my arm hurting. You can't plan on being iconic."

She added:

"The controversy [over declaring, 'You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.'] didn't surprise me because I'd had experience with it since I was 11. The pants came above my belly button--even the one with my shirt open, you didn't see anything. Compared to the things I'd done before, this was like being in winter gear."
