2012 Pirelli Calendar (NSFW)

12 Dec

It’s Pirelli calendar time! I posted a little sneak peek behind-the-scenes video last Friday, I hope that whet your whistle for a look at the whole calendar. This year, it was shot by Mario Sorrenti who picked several models he’s worked with before including Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, Saskia de Brauw, Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Joan Smalls, Lara Stone and Edita Vilkevicute. Shot in Corsica, Sorrenti originally wanted the shoot to be very sexy but in the end decided to keep it simple and subtle. In that sense, he has more than achieved his goal but I have to say, I prefer last year’s Lagerfeld shot calendar – which I also posted about. What do you think of the shots? 


Pirelli calendar 2011 – NSFW

Firstly, apologies for the lack of blogging over the last couple of days. I did give Twitter folk a head’s up, I headed to Paris this weekend to take part in the Sarenza High Heel Race. I’ll post about that properly tomorrow. For today I just about have enough energy to do a short post. As it’s December, the two hottest calendars for the coming year have been unveiled – the French Vogue calendar (which I picked up this weekend) and the Pirelli calendar. This year, the Pirelli calendar was shot by none other than Mr Lagerfeld and it looks fantastic. The theme was mythology and Lagerfeld shot the likes of Anja Rubik, Abbey Lee, Erin Wasson, Natasha Poly, Daria Werbowy and Lakshmi Menon as figures, Gods and myths from Greek and Roman mythology. I absolutely love the theme as I’m fascinated by ancient Greece and Greek mythology…I’m currently reading The Odyssey by Homer on my commute and really wish I could get a copy of the calendar. Apparently it’s only for VIPs though. What do you think of it? Worth the hype?
