Pirelli Calendar 1999

Hi there!
I have always loved the Pirelli calendar, it is a shame it is so difficult to get a copy (you see why I do wanna be a socialite!!).
In 1999, photogrpher Herb Ritts captured the image of the 12 main top models of that time reflecting the ambience of the different decades of the century that was coming to an end. The result was great, I love each picture of this calendar. Have a look at it.

Chandra North directly from the end of XIX century. Don’t you think she looks like Kate Moss in this picture?

Sophie Dhal for the first decade of the XXth century.

Karen Elson. It is a shame that her beautiful red head does not show in black and white pictures. Second decade and heart-shaped lips.

Michele Hicks showing the crazy twenties. She looks like a cat here.

Carolyn Murphy as a Hollywood star from the 30’s, glorious times.

Shirley Mallman as a sex symbol from the 40’s.

Laetitia Casta, a gorgeus pin up from the 50’s

Audrey Marnay and the californinan hippy mood from the 60’s.

Elsa Benítez in the 70’s with the racial spirit of freedom.

Briget Hall. Studio 54, supermodels, fierceness and attitude from the 80’s.

Angela Lindvall with the minimalism and simplicity of the 90’s.

The future before our eyes with Alek Wek.

Hope you liked this! Did you know all the models? You can see Karen, who is back on the runways of the fashion weeks, Carolyn who signed for Estee Lauder, Laetitia for L’Oreal, and some others who continue doing campaigns and other who have retired.
Have a nice week!
