That was and that will be: a calendar for truck drivers. Curves and more curves. And latex breasts and legs: The Cal 2015 return. With the title “Calendar Girls” shot by Steven Meisel was presented today at Hangar Bicocca in Milan.
On the cover of the American Los Angeles Gigi Hadid in red thong lattex to begin with. Then Adriana Lima (January) with just some long gloves, and Natalia Vodianova in pink girdle (February), Johan Smalls (March), the curvy body of Candice Huffine (April), the hot soldier Carolyn Murphy (May), Anna Ewers (June), Cameron Russell (July), Sasha Luss (August), Karen Elson (September), Isabeli Fontana (October),Gigi Hadid (November) and Raquel Zimmerman (December).
Carine Roitfeld, the French fashion editor that (un)dressed in latex the girls, has pushed hard on details that could make even sexier those bodies already naturally endowed with sensuality.The essence of the calendar is the female beauty: perfect faces and statuesque bodies. “No, I’m not embarrassed to pose nude, or even to show it “- says Candice, a former cheerleader Annapolis (Maryland) and now consecrated curvy model, “Steven made me feel happy in my skin. And when I saw the shot, I started to cry because I found it beautiful. ”
“Anything can be transformed”, says Jimmy Moffat, the right arm of Meisel “and when there is beauty there is no vulgarity. Pirelli gave Steven a lot of creative and economic freedom and he was able to follow his fantasies and discover the women according to his wills. ”
A super fast calendar : Meisel worked in his studio in New York for four days and every night delivering the right shots, with no alterations or second thoughts or testing. “He knows what he wants – says Candice -. In an hour we did everything. ”
“These are in my opinion the beauty reference in the world right now “- says Meisel in an introductory note -“They are stereotypes that fashion and star system impose on us. I did not want to make a conceptual calendar, or tie it to a particular location, but there are 12 posters in which the woman, with her sensuality is the protagonist of very different 12 images. Wanting to limit the use of clothes and accessories and having the maximum creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with color, with makeup, with the materials. It was a very rewarding experience. ”
