18th November 2014 | Alice Taylor

A first look at this year’s edition of the iconic Pirelli Calendar has been unveiled, featuring models Gigi Hadid, Isabeli Fontana, Anna Ewers, Candice Huffine, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls and Natalia Vodianova.

Having worked with legendary photographers such as Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, Karl Lagerfeld, and Mario Testino in the past, this year the Italian tire company hired the photographic skills of Steven Meisel and the styling talents of Carine Roitfeld – the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.

Even as the Pirelli Calendar flaunts its fiftieth anniversary with a previously unseen shoot by Helmut Newton, it’s easy to forget that powerful images of impossibly beautiful women were not always the norm. The original Calendar was a novel experiment in luxury marketing, devised by art director Derek Forsyth in 1964 to set a then-fledgling tire maker apart from the competition.
