Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Lara Stone and several other models have posed topless for 2012 Pirellie Calendar, the Daily Mail has reported.
Moss, 37, posed in her ultra small bikini top for the tyre company’s annual calendar. It is the second time Kate has posed for Pirelli calendar and she looks stunning with taut tummy and toned legs.
Renowned celebrity photographer Mario Sorrenti shot the images in the mesmerizing background of blue waters of the Mediterranean island of Corsica.
Lara Stone, wife of comedian David Williams, was also snapped stripping off her string bikini and later spotted posing completely naked on a couch covered with red velvet.
“I love Mario. He's so nice to work with. I'd like to do [Pirelli] every year, til I'm 75,” Daily Mail quoted the 28-year-old model as saying.
Mario dated Kate for a short duration and since their split, they remained close friends. “We've known each other since I was 17 - we were boyfriend and girlfriend for a couple of years. He adores women,” Kate said, according to the Daily Mail.
It was a fantastic assignment with the emphasis really being placed on feminine beauty, an insider on the set told Belfasttelegraph.co.uk.
And the pictures are fabulous. The girls look really, really sexy, he said.
Eleven other celebrities who shed clothes for the calendar shoot include Ukranian actress Milla Jovovich, Dutch model Saskia de Brauw and Lara Stone.
However, despite the steamy shots, Mario isn’t quite happy with the 2012 calendar. “You know, originally I thought I was going to do very sexy pictures, and when we got there I realized that I didn't want the pictures to be sexy at all,” he told Women's Wear Daily.
“I meant that they're not 'obviously' sexy. I didn't want them to be posing and arching and like sticking their boobs in my face or anything like that,” he said.
This year it will be a 25-photo spread, shot on the theme of “Swoon,” that Sorenti explained as… “I put the bodies in direct contact with Nature, which harbours them as if they were its extension, in a set of images where rocks, land, tree trunks, sky and sea are all turned into a backdrop for the bodies.”
The calendar is known for featuring the world’s most beautiful women since 1964 and is catered specifically for royalty, celebrities and VIP customers.
