The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”
