Nothing gets between the men of Moonlight and their rightful Oscar — or their Calvins.

A day after their film was embroiled in a stunning mix-up that culminated in a win for best picture, Moonlight actors Mahershala Ali, Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes have been unveiled as the faces of Calvin Klein’s spring 2017 men’s underwear campaign.

Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, the four actors appear in a series of striking black-and-white images, both moody and joyous.

“Since the beginning, Calvin Klein’s underwear imagery has always made big statements about masculinity,” Calvin Klein creative director Pieter Mulier said in a statement. “The performances of these actors in Moonlight affected us deeply and made big statements about masculinity in a different way. Somehow we wanted to bring the two together.”

Rhodes, Sanders, and Hibbert — who each played Moonlight‘s protagonist, Chiron, at different ages — also wore Calvin Klein to the Oscars, as did costar Naomie Harris.
