What has Lil Miquela, sentient robot and virtual influencer, been up to these days? A lot, if her Instagram is any indication, including interviewing a bunch of celebrities at this year’s Coachella festival, launching her own clothing line Club 404, and standing up for women’s reproductive health (even the robot gets it). Today, Miquela adds another feat to her resume by joining Calvin Klein’s star-studded lineup as the final star in I Speak My Truth in #MyCalvins.
The Calvin Klein campaign encourages individuals to embrace vulnerability through a series of videos featuring musicians, actors, and models sharing their truths. Billie Eilish, Chika Oranika, Noah Centineo, Shawn Mendes, and more kicked off the series last week. For the final video installment, Bella Hadid joins the mix and is seen standing in a dimly lit blue room before the lights come up to show Lil Miquela walking in to greet her.
“19-year-old robot Lil Miquela blurs the lines of truth and fiction with Bella Hadid. Is this a dream or real?,” the brand writes in the video description. “Life is about opening doors’, Hadid says, as Hadid caresses Miquela’s face, “creating new dreams, that you never knew could exist.” Then, the pair shares a kiss (?) and stare at each other until the light dims again.
Calvin Klein also tapped ELLE’s first transgender cover star Indya Moore, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, A$AP Rocky, and more to be a part of the campaign.
