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.
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
Elsa Benítez in the 70’s with the racial spirit of freedom.
Angela Lindvall with the minimalism and simplicity of the 90’s.
