WATCH: The Mystery Of The Mislabeled Vintage Pirelli Shoot
It’s no secret that we love ourselves a vintage video around here — and half the reason we love them is the mystery! What year was it? Where is the accompanying editorial spread? Can we name every model and figure out the photographer? It’s like a super fun game of fashion trivia. But today, dear readers, we found one that stumped us. Featuring Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and three unknown models, the clip is described as a “Rare Pirelli” video, but we’re not so sure. Can you help us out?
Here’s the video:
A few things — like we said, we’ve identified three of the six models (Naomi, Kate, and Christy), but can’t figure out the remaining three. In the final second of the clip, we get to see the photog’s face — which reveals a wonderfully hirsute Patrick Demarchelier. But the only Pirelli calendars Demarchelier shot were in 2005 and 2008 — while the models (and the high-cut underwear) make it clear that this shoot took place in the 90s.
We’ve searched high and low for a shoot by Patrick featuring those three supers in black tanks and matching panties, but have come up empty handed. Can you help us figure out the other three models — or, even better, the final editorial? There will be a prize of some sort, we promise!
