Sorrenti's Pirelli: Moss and Jovovich in the 2012 Calendar (NSFW)

2012 Pirelli Calendar photographed by Mario Sorrenti

This year, the exclusive Pirelli calendar has a bevy of bare beauties including fashion royalty mademoiselle Kate Moss.

Also appearing mostly nude in the 2012 Pirelli calendar are Lara Stone, Guinevere Can Seenus, Natasha Poly, Rinko Kikuchi, Margareth Madem Malgosia, Edita Vilkeviciute, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls and Milla Jovovich.

Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, a former boyfriend of Moss and old friend of Jovovich, the calendar takes a decisively more forward approach than last year’s Karl Lagerfeld Pirelli calendar which featured models posed as classical goddesses in Roman robes.

Sorrenti’s Pirelli features Moss and Jovovich fully naked on granite boulders by the sea in Corsica. Other photos reveal more nudity indoors and out. The calendar’s artful nudity is a seamless addition to Sorrenti’s catalog as a photographer renowned for shooting nude editorials.  He is also famous for his black and white Calvin Klein campaigns in the nineties starring a teenage Moss.

Sorrenti thematically described the calendar as “Swoon.” He explains, “In Swoon, I put the bodies in direct contact with Nature, which harbors 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.”

Sorrenti, in addition to Lagerfeld, joins the ranks of Terry Richardson, Patrick Demarchelier and Nick Knight as photographers of the exclusive calendar which can’t be bought by the general public and is gifted in a limited scope to royalty and celebrities.
