One might dub today as the battle of the calendars. In one corner you have today’s release of the 2011 Pirelli calendar with photographer Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens and a number of the world’s best models in front of it. In the other corner you have the release of the 2011 Vogue Paris calendar with fewer people anticipating its release and Daria Werbowy its only, albeit perfect, subject. For such a bout the odds are firmly in Pirelli’s favour.
But now you have a choice to make your decision as to which you prefer. Here’s a sample – you can find the rest of the pictures after the jump.
The 2011 Vogue Paris calendar, Le calendrier 2011 Vogue, was photographed by Mikael Jansson which is why, if we were betting people, we’d wager for Vogue Paris’ better odds that you’ll prefer the outcome. We at least do. Largfeld’s Pirelli calendar, which you can see at that link if you haven’t already taken in, has all the hallmarks of a quality production but it feels lifeless and flat. Perhaps it was intentional with Pirelli, but the 2011 Vogue Paris calendar has no such short comings.
