Kenya Kinski Jones, daughter of music mogul Quincy Jones and actress Nastassja Kinski, appears with real boyfriend, actor, Will Peltz, in Calvin Klein’s risque new jeans campaign focusing on love, lust–and unmentioned, infidelity–in the social media age.

Jones, 22, is an aspiring model who is just beginning to come into her own. The Calvin Klein campaign gives her a significant boost.

It’s hard to believe someone as arresting as Kenya only has 17,000 Instagram followers. She’s appears ravishing in her posts. But she’s largely been flying under the radar… for too long.

But there appears to be a good reason. She’s been in college! And, she’s just graduated with a degree in English, she told Harper’s Bazaar.

The Fall 2015 Calvin Klein Jeans global multi-media advertising campaign also enlists models Grace Hartzel, Ethan James Green, Aya Jones, Julia Van Os, Piero Mendez, Alessio P., Imaan Hammam, Harmony Boucher, Torin Verdone, Laura Julie, Noma Han, Jaime Carpena, Tiana Tolstoi and Reid Rohling.

But Jones and Peltz, 29, are providing some star power. Peltz is best known for his roles in horror film, “Unfriended” and Jason Reitmans drama “Men, Women & Children.”

Jones was profiled in Teen Vogue last fall and in Harper’s Bazaar this month. She signed with Ford Models at 18, and landed on th cover of Vogue Spain in her first photo shoot.

Calvin Klein is her first major campaign. The fashion brand was looking for someone who was in a “genuine, real life relationship,” she tells Harpers.

Peltz, who is repped by IMG Models, went to a casting first, and when they found out who he was dating, well, the rest is history.

“We both met with Calvin Klein Jeans in New York a few times, and then it just happened!​” says Kenya. “Working with Mario Sorrenti was amazing, I was so honored to work with him.”

They’ve been dating for five years! Talk about longevity.

Kenya says she was never really motivated growing up to follow in her father’s footsteps into music, or her mother’s into acting. She spent a lot of time riding horses competitively.

I’ve been riding horses for most of my life,” she says. “I have my horse Deeter in Topanga Canyon; it’s in Malibu—it’s like a little getaway, really peaceful.

When she’s with her friends, “we love to have game nights, play lazer tag.”

Her rise in modeling is happening pretty fast, but it’s easy to see why her exotic beauty is suddenly in demand.

The campaign, like many previous Calvin Klein advertisements, is raising eyebrows because of its controversial subject matter.

“Calvin Klein Jeans has a long history of combining sexual energy with cultural relevance,” said Melisa Goldie, Chief Marketing Officer of Calvin Klein, Inc. in a statement.

“Through this campaign, we’re creating an emotional connection with today’s technology driven generation, highlighting the new normal channel for modern meet-ups,” she said.
