The 2011 Pirelli Calendar

2011’s Pirelli calendar has been shot by Karl Lagerfeld and it certainly has his fingerprints all over it. Sculptural, shadowy black and white with all his favourites present like a classroom roll call – Abbey Lee, Anja, Freja. Julianne Moore is featured as well in some beautiful images – she holds her own among the supers. In an unexpected turn of events the mythology themed shoot features (almost) full frontal nudes of men along with the usual offering of (tastefully) naked women. Is Pirelli trying to capture the gay market?! It all seems a little out of character – all I know looking at this year’s shots is that while undeniably beautiful, no straight man I know would want this calendar hanging on their wall.
