Well there are certainly firsts for everything, even for models and calendars!
A new year is approaching, which means new resolutions, diets, parties, and the 2013 Pirelli calendar. But this year will be different... a little more covered up than usual.
Best known for its tasteful images of iconic models in the nude, the exclusive Pirelli calendar has taken a turn, and features its first ever clothed models, and a pregnant one to boot!
The breathtaking Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima posed for photographer Steve McCurry in May while she was around 5 months preggy, as we can all clearly see. Shot in Rio, the Brazilian born beauty was quite at home, as McCurry shot her "clothed as she came," with his desire to capture models in a more natural state, rather than planned and posed.
McCurry set out to create a "calendar of the soul" this time around, delivering a nude free edition that focuses on daily life in Brazil and the models known charity work.
Well, however he chooses to shoot Adriana, we think the snaps are lovely. What do you think?
