The model is rumored to be following into the footsteps of the likes of Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen and Sophia Loren in posing for the raunchy photographs.
The Pirelli calendar is a limited edition trade publication, which is highly elusive as it is only given away as a corporate gift.
It has become globally famous for featuring only top models and celebrities in artistic nude pictures taken by the world’s most celebrated photographers.
The 2013 edition will be shot by the renowned Steve McCurry, most famous for his Portrait of a Girl with Green Eyes.
Industry insiders are incredibly excited at the prospect of Karlie being shot for the exclusive calendar. Despite her tender age, the 19-year-old has been making waves in the fashion world and has worked with the likes of Dior, Louis Vuitton and Versace. She has been ranked third in the Top 50 Models Women list by models.com, while Vogue Paris declared her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.
Karlie is certainly not shy about showing off her incredible body as she proved when she posed naked for a black and white spread in Vogue Italia.
