To familiarise yourself with the Pirelli Calendar, better known as the Cal, lets take a trip down memory lane to 1964 when the first calendar was published by the Italian tyre company, with each year featuring the most beautiful supermodels strutting their stuff in close to nude images.

Fast forwarding to 2014, nothing has changed. The fashion industry has taken advantage of these calendars as they include with work of the world’s best photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier and supermodels like Kate MossNaomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford to name just a few.

Having celebrated their 50th birthday last year with never before seen archive shots, this year the calendar is better and bigger – literally.

The lucky 12 supermodels are Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabelli Fontana, Sasha Luss, Anna Ewers, Carolyn Murphy, Cameron Russel, Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson, Joan Smalls and rounding up the twelve is the first plus size Pirelli model; Candice Huffine who looks gorgeous!

This year, supermodel Joan Smalls features as a dominatrix boxer. Smalls said to WWD“I loved the character I had to play. I used to box and it was related to boxing, but they didn’t have me box. It was character-driven – like a boxer mixed with a dominatrix.”

What makes the 2015 calendar even more special, is that it was styled by former Vogue France editor, Carine Roitfeld – who we all know has the golden touch. Photography was done by Steven Meisel, with Roitfeld adding her new 19-year-old muse Gigi Hadid to the Pirelli roster. Hadid who is currently a student at NYU, told WWD; “When I heard I was being a part of this, I thought they were kidding. I was like, ‘They want me in it?’ I guess there has to be that next generation. Carine Roitfeld has been so supportive with my career. She really pushed me. I’m so grateful to have her in my life.”

The calendar will be available in November.
