Pirelli Calendar 2012 Page 1
The annual Pirelli calendar is usually very, very naked, but this year’s is quite the opposite. Instead Steve McCurry, who lensed the iconic “Portrait of a Girl with Green Eyes” National Geographic cover, photographed philanthropic models like Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede, pregnant Adriana Lima, and more — all fully-clothed. A few shots from the calendar are already out, and now we’ve got a beautiful behind-the-scenes look of McCurry at work.
The fact that it’s Friday notwithstanding, why would anyone make a 20-minute long behind the scenes video? But for those of you looking to see some artfully dampened nudity (there’s an assistant tasked with wetting the models via spray bottles) or hear Milla Jovovich explain the relationship between the strength and quality of Pirelli tires and the models featured in the calendar, this video is for you!
This morning, Pirelli unveiled their much anticipated calendar for 2012, this time around shot by Mario Sorrenti, onetime boyfriend to Kate Moss and photographer of Sexy Model Pictures™. The first photos are here and, despite his best efforts, they are decidedly sexy. Take a look!
Fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti claims he didn’t want his 2012 Pirelli calendar to be overtly sexy, but we think the photos he took for it are probably going to fit that description to a tee.
The 2012 Pirelli calendar won’t be unveiled until December, but images of the racy annal have already started leaking online. Shot by Mario Sorrenti in Corsica earlier this summer, the photos leaked so consist of nude, nearly nude, and basically nude images of Lara Stone, Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, and actress Rinko Kikuchi (who we, personally, think was an inspired choice.)
