The Pirelli Calendar returns for 2015 and it seems there are a few surprises up the sleeves of photographer Steven Meisel and stylist Carine Roitfeld. There are 12 models featured in the calendar, as expected so, no surprises there. However, there are a few casting surprises.
First of all, Gigi Hadid is starring in the calendar for the first time. You’ll know her as the daughter of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Yolanda Foster. Gigi has also landed a massive gig as a face of Tom Ford this year. The youngster is on a roll and we’re sure this is only the beginning.
Now, the big news is the tidbit we’ve left for last. For the first time in the calendar’s 50 years of existence, The Pirelli Calendar will feature a Plus Size Model. Candice Huffine has the honour of being the first calendar girl who isn’t a “straight sized” lady. WWD released a first look at the model in action last week and we’re wondering why it took Pirelli so long to embrace curves. Looks good, no scratch that, looks great.
Congrats, Gigi and Candice on your new role as part of the Pirelli family.
