So you’re wondering what to get the boyfriend this year, miss style queen? I wish I could say it would be easy to get your hands on one of the most desired calendars of the 21st century but alas its popularity has been created in part because it is nearly impossible to get one. The Pirelli calendar is not available for purchase as it is gifted to Pirelli clients and certain VIPs.
The images this year are absolutely breathtaking and blogs have been overflowing with the images that were released last week. Terry Richardson shot the ladies this year, in all of their glory. Our favourite month will most certainly be the one featuring Daisy Lowe and Catherine McNeil stuck in together in a rather small tire.
The calendar was first published in 1964 as a tool for the trade. It lasted for ten years, shutting down in 1974 due to an economic crisis. Ten years later in 1984 the calendar was resurrected. The calendar has featured some serious power players in the world of fashion including: Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Monica Bellucci, Sophie Dahl, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Doetzen Kroes, Flippa Hamilton and Lily Cole (just to name a few).
So why not save yourself a lot of time and effort and buy your loved one a copy of the The Complete Pirelli Calendars book. It’s well worth it and it’s something you both can enjoy. He gets to look at naked women and you get to check out amazing photography and take in even more inspiration to stick to a strict diet and exercise regime for the new year.
Here are some oldies, but goodies, from previous calendar years…
