Thirty-seven years after she first posed the question, "What gets between me and my Calvins?" actress Brooke Shields is teaming up with the American fashion house yet again.

Plans are in the works for the 52-year-old to shoot a new advertising campaign for Calvin Klein, and while there's no word yet whether it will feature the brand's iconic denim, Shields hinted that it might in an interview with Women's Wear Daily.

"It’s both nostalgic and exciting—it feels like yesterday and at the same time it feels like a lifetime ago," Shields told WWD earlier this year. "But it still feels like the perfect fit—and I’m not using a jeans analogy. No pun intended."

Rumors of the partnership were solidified by Calvin Klein CEO Steve Shiffman, who shared news of the collaboration at Time Inc’s Cannes Lions Shakers & Stirrers event. "We are going to be working with Brooke again very soon," he said.

Brooke's first ad for the company (above) debuted in 1980 and immediately caused controversy. According to the New York Times, the commercial "was promptly banned by ABC and CBS in New York—for insinuating that Shields wasn't wearing any underwear."
