2012 Pirelli Calendar + week in pics (NSFW)

If you’re offended by nudity, you might want to skip this gallery because there’s rather a lot of it.

What there isn’t? Diversity. More’s the pity. The 2012 Pirelli Calendar – shot by Mario Sorrenti – has been released and it stars some of the world’s highest paid and most successful editorial models including Kate Moss and Milla Jovovich.

In case you’re nor fam the the Pirelli Calendar, it’s a slightly weird thing – an annual shoot of A-list models and actresses – naked, but arty. While the ages of the models range from 22 to 37 (Kate Moss), the body types are sadly the same. More info about it under the gallery.

Also in the week’s pictures that have grabbed out attention, there’s the “private” photos of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (ironically leaked  via Facebook), the Barbie doll version of which pop music star? and the H&M ad campaign that everyone’s talking about…

More about the Pirelli calendar which stars: Kate Moss, Seenus, Malgosia, Edita Vilkevicute, Milla Jovovich, Margareth Made, and Rinko Kikuchi.

According to Jezebel….

This morning in New York City, fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti unveiled the 2012 Pirelli calendar — the limited-edition corporate gift for top clients, published annually by the tire brand, that just happens to double as one of modeling’s most prestigious gigs. The Pirelli calendar is to the girlie calendar in the employee bathroom of your local auto shop as the New York Review is to Reader’s Digest.

The models range in age (at least slightly: Vilkeviciute at 22 is the youngest, and Moss, at 37, the eldest; Jovovich is 35, and Bela is 34) and some are actors, but the Pirelli calendar would be even lovelier if it presented a more diverse and varied conception of female beauty.
