Initial Behind the Scenes Shots from Pirelli 2012 Calendar

by Alice Byrne

At the end of summer it is exciting to see what the greatest fashion calendars of the year will be as pictures begin to get released. Of course, the iconic Pirelli calendar will be one of the most eagerly anticipated releases, although (as always) it actually shows little in the way of fashion. The first images released feature the newly married Kate Moss, among others, writhing around in Corsica dressed in minimal clothing. The coveted calendar is expected to play up to the concepts of fashion and aspirational lifestyles, fashion and sensuality and fashion as youth.

The photographer in charge of creating the iconic images for next year’s calender falls to photographer Mario Sorrenti, who will be shooting some of the finest model’s in the business, rumoured to be Anna Selezneva, Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Isabeli Fontana and Saskia de Brauw as well as actresses Mila Jovovich and Rinko Kikuchi.

Here we get to take a look at the action going on behind the camera, from some of the initial shots featured in the calender. These behind the scenes images were produced by Vanity Fair, and the Pirelli calender will be released on 6th December, 2012.
