Every year the Pirelli Calendar seems to become more and more ubiquitous. There’s just something about artistic nudity that gets people in the mood to herald the New Year. But unlike Karl Lagerfeld’s rather kitschy mythology-themed calendar last year, for 2012 Mario Sorrenti shot a mix of supes and soon-to-be-supes in a tasteful, intimate beach setting in Corsica.
And so, the twelve brave women selected this year are: Kate Moss (a friend of Sorrenti’s since forever), Lara Stone, Milla Jovovich, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, Margareth Made, Saskia de Brauw, Joan Smalls, Guinevere Van Seenus, Malgosia, Edita Vilkevicute, and Rinko Kikuchi. Each girl is shot twice, with the user able to flick between them. That sound you hear is the din of high-school boys everywhere rejoicing—or something.
