Young Thug is one of the new faces of Calvin Klein’s FW16 campaign and agrees that he looks good in a dress.

Calvin Klein has been tapping in to Hip-Hop culture to feature their clothes for decades dating back to doing ads with Marky Mark in the early 90s on up to this year with Fetty Wap, Kendrick Lamar and Joey Bada$$.

Keeping in tradition, the long-running line is now featuring Frank Ocean and Young Thug for their new FW16 campaign. CK shot brief video clips with the two artists that were shared as Snapchat stories.

The two artists make completely different kinds of music, but they do have questions surrounding their sexuality in common. In 2012 Ocean caused a stir when he revealed that his first “true love” was another man. However, he never identified himself as gay or bisexual.

Young Thug has also had his sexuality discussed back-and-forth. In addition to referring to his male friends as “bae” and “sexy” on occassion, his choice to wear women’s clothing from time to time has made many debate on his sexual preference.

Well, we can expect that debate to escalate due to his comments in his Calvin Klein ad. Thugger, shown topless, talks about how in his world there is no such thing as gender and that gangsters can be gangsters even while wearing a dress.

When a voice off-camera tells Thug that he looks good in a dress, he smirks and replies, “thanks.”
