It’s almost become a bigger calendar-related event than the new year which dictates the needs for a new calendar to begin with. So it is that we spend most of the year talking about the ins and outs of a sole calendar, pondering who’ll photograph it and how they’ll go about it, before passing around rumours as to the models who’ll actually feature in it. For this year the anticipation climaxes today. You can now see all the photo from the 2012 Pirelli calendar. Click the thumbnails for full pictures: Featuring the likes of Edita Vilkeviciute, Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Natasha Poly, next year’s calendar was photographed by Mario Sorrenti. Sitting quite differently to the 2011 Pirelli calendar, this year’s focusses on the raw beauty of each of women who posed for it. The nudity may remain, but the themes are gone. Of the photos that Mario Sorrenti took, 25 will be published in the limited edition, 2012 Pirelli calendar. You can see them by clicking on the thumbnails above.
