There's no stopping the cast of Moonlight.

Fresh from the utter sh*tstorm that was the Oscars, Academy Award-winning Mahershala Ali and his fellow co-stars Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes are fronting a captivating underwear campaign for Calvin Klein.

Shot by Willy Vanderperre, the campaign is a series of black and white photographs which are a mix of shots and close-up portraits of the actors. 

Just another perk of being in such a stunning and widely-lauded film, we guess. Some of the cast even donned Calvin Klein suits to the Oscars. 

"It's an acknowledgement of remarkable actors who are revealing something important of being a man today in what they do," Raf Simons, Chief Creative Officer of Calvin Klein, said in a statement as per Fashionista

The images will appear on billboards, alongside digital and print media.

"Since the beginning, Calvin Klein's underwear imagery has always made big statements about masculinity; 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," Pieter Mulier, Calvin Klein's creative director, said in a statement.  

Moonlight took home three Oscars on Sunday, including a Best Supporting Actor win for Ali, Best Writing Adapted Screenplay, and of course, Best Picture.
