Stunning mom and daughter duo Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz are featured in Calvin Klein’s new Watches + Jewelry 2016 campaign. The inspiring designer shared the black and white image of the look-alike duo on Instagram, in which they are shown walking hand-in-hand on a lake shore with Zoe rocking a black bra under a sheer dress, while Lisa flaunts her slim shape in a black figure-hugging dress. It marks yet another big advertising gig for Kravitz, who recently appeared in Balenciaga’s spring 2016 campaign.
Calvin’s campaign encourages consumers to live “Life in the now” and share their #CKMinute. The video ad also stars actor Will Peltz and his girlfriend, model Kenya Kinski, model couple John Hein and Tilda Lindstam, Korean model and actor Kim Woo Bin and his friend, Chinese model and street style star Xiao Wen Ju, per E! Online. The voiceover in the campaign video says, “It’s challenging to stay completely present and stay in the now, but I think that’s a gift.” Check out the ad below.
Zoe has become a household name due to her roles in Divergent, the X-Men series and Mad Max: Fury Road. Her dad is legendary musician Lenny Kravitz and mom Lisa is famously known for playing Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Bonet also shares daughter Lola, 8, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 7, with husband and Game of Thrones alum Jason Momoa.
Bonet has not yet – and is not likely to publicly speak about the sexual assault allegations against her former TV dad, but in interview with the UK’s Guardian, Zoe was asked whether her mom had discussed the allegations with her.
“She hasn’t, she really hasn’t. She’d plead the fifth, even to me. I think she’s just staying out of it,” she said, adding that Lisa is “just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight. It’s news to her as well.”
Bonet was 17 when starred on The Cosby Show from 1984 to 1991, and 23 when she left. She also starred in its spinoff comedy, A Different World for its first season. The series forced on Denise Huxtable’s college life.
“She was on the show for a long time. She’s also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder,” Zoe acknowledged, alluding to speculation about her mom’s experience with Bill Cosby, and whether she was among his alleged victims. “She’s a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused, she would say something.”

At age 19, Lisa shared an explicit scene with actor Mickey Rourke in the film Angel Heart, directed by Alan Parker. She followed it up with a topless spread in Interview magazine. She was eventually fired from Cosby in 1991 because of “creative differences”. Her other film credits include a supporting role in Enemy of the State with Will Smith, High Fidelity and Biker Boyz, which reunited her with former A Different World co-star Kadeem Hardison.
Bonet, who legally changed her name to Lilakoi Moon in 1995, played Jason Momoa’s love interest in Road To Paloma, a part he wrote for his wife of nine years. During a 2014 interview with The Huff Post to promote the film, he called Lisa “dream woman.”
“She’s so amazing because I’m such a dipshit,” he told host Alyona Minkovski. “She’s an angel. She’s amazing. God bless her. She’s seeing this one through. I’ve done a lot of dumb things in my life.”
Lisa ended her six-year marriage to Lenny Kravitz in 1993, but the couple remain close, as evidenced by the friendly stroll they were spotted on in Los Angeles last year. Zoe has praised her dad for getting along with Momoa and said that having a blended family is “really beautiful.”
“They have so much love for each other,” she said of Lenny, Lisa and Jason. “It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close. My dad and my step-dad get along really well, and my dad loves and is close with my brother and sister (Lola and Nakoa-Wolf).”
