Sexy Back

Love him or hate him, Terry Richardson knows how to get your attention. His oft imitated but never duplicated style is sexy and memorable, and for the 2010 Pirelli calendar, Richardson brings a touch of cheekiness and sensuality with his snapshots of scantily-clad beauties. Whether it is the ethereal, Georgina Stojiljkovic posing with a very happy sloth or Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Marloes Horst looking pristine on white sand beaches; each picture is provocative yet playful.

  1. Roaie and Marloes are stunning.. so fresh and beautiful! Meranda is gorgeous too, but angel of the shot makes it look like her shorts are being eaten between her legs. Not the look!

  2. what college fratboy with a digital camera couldn’t have shot this? Getting a model to pose topless- wow, how inventive.

  3. Childporn???? what a stupid remark.
    Really stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They look beautiful.
    Not like little children.
    Get a life.

  4. Eeek, I don’t know how familiar you are with Pirelli but traditionally, the calendar features nudity. Hence the topless pictures. Perhaps the pictures are not to your taste but nudity has always been a part of the calendar itself.

  5. This is trash. I am completely confused with this.
    I love nude photography and great lighting around it
    but oh my god this is absolutely terrible. And all honesty
    I think Terry is a decent photographer. I am not amazed nor shocked by his work.

  6. The models are gorgeous. I’m not a fan of the images, but you can’t deny that the models themselves are stunning. The images are kind of bland…

  7. I like Catherine’s pic but it should’ve been another girl with her.. Daisy’s not bad but she doesn’t look like a model, I mean I get the quirky girl/incredibly hot girl thing, but maybe someone sexier like Eniko.

  8. Janelle, I know all too well that nudity is part of the Pirelli calendar tradition. My point is that ALL TR did was pose a model with her top off and shoot the camera. Other photogs have done it but in a way that’s actually artistic and creative. I could not care less about the girls being nude. They’re all over 18 I presume. But these pix are just boring and sophomoric.

  9. um…gorgeous women and their insatiably gorgeous breasts. can you ever, ever find a flaw with this? as for the critic, who thinks it’s too glamourous…you are nuts! this is HOW edgy fashion should look…so sexy, so beautiful, and so fun. I LOVE Terry Richardson! He is the rock n roll photographer from heaven. These girls are stunning.

  10. The women look gorgeous especially Georgina and Marloes.Georgina’s boobs look very fresh and the sloth is happy being able to admire such cute pink nipples.The photography is ordinary,its the boobs which is the winner.

  11. eeek, Happy Thanksgiving, I really just think its Terry’s snapshot style at work. This is exactly what I expected when I heard Terry would be shooting for Pirelli. I do understand what you mean about a more artistic viewpoint, from a personal standpoint, my favorite Pirelli calendars have been Nick Knight and Mert & Marcus’ which take the theme into a very arty place.

    That said, I think that what is so fun about the calendar is that each year were treated to a different POV that really represents the photographer. This is very Terry and I like that about it.

  12. sorry but if you call this beautiful pictures, then what about playboy? these pictures could be used in there too. I cannot imagine Vogue would ever use this kind of photographs

  13. obviously Vogue would not use these, because Vogue is crap. These pictures are a little too avante garde for American Vogue, which uses the same formula, and the same bland models each month. These are exciting pictures, and they show tits, so it would probably be Vogue Italia that would take the risk, although these weren’t even meant for a mag, they were meant for something different.

  14. Miranda and Marloes look like child porns ?
    These women made a lot of money with this job….., nobody forced them to take pictures showing their bodies… me a favor…., ask her if this is porn !!!!

  15. This is not exciting, different, avante garde or anything of the sort. It’s bland. If it wasn’t for the fact that the girls in the photos are supermodels, this could be any old glamour or soft porn shoot – I’ve seen the other shots from the calendar as well and some of them are even worse. It doesn’t push boundaries, it’s not exciting, it’s lame and actually made me uncomfortable, and not because of the nudity, which I don’t have a problem with, but because it’s pretending to be something high-end and fabulous when it’s just uncreative smut. I feel cheated! These girls deserve so much more in a photographer. Terry Richardson is so overrated it’s not funny. Ooh super-saturated images of nudity in standard smut poses, edgy! At least he didn’t go for his usual white wall as background this time around. For actual talent when it comes to a Pirelli calendar check out 1996 & 2002 by Peter Lindbergh, 1998 by Bruce Weber, 1999 by Herb Ritts, 2005 & 2008 by Patrick Demarchelier, and the best ever, 2006 by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. Now that is actual art.

  16. this is HOT, but all in all I prefer a more artistic Pirelli calendar than this. Something with a story or at least even a theme. This is beautiful women with beautiful bodies nude in a beautiful location. But that’s about it.

  17. I am not a fan of Mr. Richardson’s work, he does add an interesting twist to the Pirelli Calendar.
