The end is nigh!
The world waits with bated breath for the 2013 Pirelli Calendar, but if peeps are expecting 12 months of barely-clothed, and sometimes completely nekked, supermodels, they’re in for a rude awakening.
This year’s Pirelli Calendar, shot by Steve McCurry, is taking a rather subversive approach, and featuring some of the planet’s hottest women–including Petra Nemcova, Liya Kebede, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, and Isabeli Fontana–totally dressed, you know, in actual clothing.
Gasp! Surely this is a sign of the apocalypse!
And as we mentioned before, some of the shots even feature Victoria’s Secret babe Adriana Lima looking approximately six months pregnant.
That’s right, ladies and gents, there is a pregnant supermodel in your fave NSFW annual almanac. Just let that sink in.
This year’s version also features street images of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (where the calendar was shot) as well as appearances by some of Brazil’s own singers and actors.
Disappointing? Maybe for the all the horny teenage boys out there, but we think this is a very refreshing take!
What’s more, the calendar’s hotties were chosen not only for their good looks but also because they are all involved in significant charity work, with some of them even heads of their own charitable foundations.
They’ve got beauty inside and out.
Check out some behind the scenes footage of the shoot in the gallery (below)!
Happy New Year!
