In the 1980s, American actress Brooke Shields rose from the status of controversial child actress in the film Pretty Baby (1978) to that of a world-famous model, actress, and celebrity. It was her style and particularly her beauty in The Blue Lagoon (1980) that turned her into an icon with a large fan base. In 1981, aged sixteen, her appearance in sexualized adverts for Calvin Klein Jeans redefined the profile of the fashion brand. Shields appeared on the cover of dozens of international magazines, including Time in February 1981, accompanied by the tag line “The ’80s Look.”
