Mario Sorrenti shot the 2012 edition of the highly covetable Pirelli Calendar – the perennial personal organiser that has gained cult status thanks to the beautiful, nude women who adorn its pages. This year the featured models include Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Saskia de Brauw, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana and Milla Jovovich; but unlike previous year’s calendars, Sorrenti’s version eschews the gratuitous, overtly sexy imagery of past efforts (like Terry Richardson in ’10 and Karl Lagerfeld last year) and instead has captured simple shots that evoke a natural, innocent beauty – it’s a celebration and study of women, not just a exercise in t & a. (Having said that, there’s still ample t and v on display, so needless to say these pics are NOT SAFE FOR WORK).
