The 2012 Pirelli Calendar is Here
The Pirelli Calendar has become one of fashions most interesting traditions, each year a major photographer goes off and captures models and muses who pose nude for the calendar. Last year Karl Lagerfeld had the honor and for 2012 it’s Mario Sorrenti. The photographer captured beautiful artistic nude shots of models Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Milla Jovovich, Guinevere Van Seenus, Saskia de Brauw, Malgosia Bela, Edita Vilkeviciute, Margareth Made, and Rinko Kikuchi.
Interesting tid bit, Sorrenti and Moss used to date, but this shoot was all platonic as Moss is now married. The shoot actually took place back in May, but with the anticipation of the new year upon us, the images have just made their way onto the web. An interactive online component has been added this year, where a subscriber can pick and choose the models he wants to appear. For instance, if someone doesn’t want to part with Lara Stone, they can opt to continue to have her image up. Subscribers are given a login to access to the exclusive features on the Pirelli Calendar website.
The girls are shot primarily in black and white and the images are nothing short of incredible photographic artwork. Confession, we spent awhile ogling them too!
