We brought you behind-the-scenes pictures from as early as August this year, but now the official images from the new Pirelli calendar have been released – and they have been worth the wait!
The 2012 Pirelli calendar was shot on location in Corsica, and features 13 of the hottest and most in-demand models (including Saskia de Brauw (pictured above), Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Natasha Poly, Lara Stone, Milla Jovovich and Isabeli Fontana) posing nude for Mario Sorrenti’s lens.
“You know, originally I thought I was going to do very sexy pictures, and when we got there I realised that I didn’t want the pictures to be sexy at all… I didn’t want them to be posing and arching and like sticking their boobs in my face or anything like that,” Mario Sorrenti said about the nature of the calendar.
“We tried to keep it very simple, there were times where we did just photographs with the model and myself and there was no one around. I think that was the moment when I was able to capture some of the most beautiful photographs… You kind of lose yourself and you go with the flow of the moment and just let things happen.”
If you’re not one of the celebrities or VIPs the calendar is exclusively sent to (it isn’t available to buy), you can check out our NSFW gallery featuring our favourite pictures below.
