The Ethiopian runway star, who stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Calvin Klein’s new Eternity fragrance commercial, has made her mark in the industry by appearing on runways for top designers like Louis Vuitton and Céline.

In her latest ad for CK, Kebede and Gyllenhaal play mom and dad to 4-year-old actress, Leila, while reciting a love poem.

Kebede is also the founder of the handcrafted clothing line, Lemlem. She sat down with Elle to discuss the new ad and working with Calvin Klein.

“It’s involved. There’s a lot of creative input from a lot of different people,” Kebede said in an interview with Elle about the new ad. “So it wasn’t just [Creative Director] Raf Simmons, it was [photographer] Willy [Vanderperre] and Calvin Klein’s entire creative team. Then it was their ad agency’s creative team. And then Jake, because his production company was producing the commercial, he was really involved in creative choices, too.”
