Pirelli Calendar 2010
2010 Pirelli Calendar Naked Models
The Pirelli Calendar is a trade calendar published by the Pirelli company's UK subsidiary. It has become an annual publication that dates back to 1964.
The calendar is famous for its limited availability, as it is only given as a corporate gift to a restricted number of important Pirelli customers and celebrity VIPs. The Pirelli Calendar pictures are generally considered glamour photography including artistic nudes.
Publication was discontinued after the 1974 issue as an economising cut-back in response to the world recession from the oil shock. It was resurrected 10 years later and has been published regularly since then.
Appearance in the calendar has become a mark of distinction for those photographic models that are chosen, as well as for the photographers commissioned to produce the images used.
Over the years, the models and celebrities who have appeared in it include Sienna Miller, Naomi Campbell, Valeria Mazza, Eva Riccobono, Malgosia Bela, Gisele Bündchen, Emanuela de Paula, Sonny Freeman Drane, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Selma Blair, Lauren Bush, Elsa Benitez, Laetitia Casta, Rachael Leigh Cook, Milla Jovovich, Doutzen Kroes, Heidi Klum, Sophia Loren, Penélope Cruz, Brittany Murphy, Amy Smart, Julia Stiles, Karolina Kurkova, Caroline Trentini, Raica Oliveira, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Bridget Moynahan, Shannyn Sossamon, Mena Suvari, Monet Mazur, Aurelie Claudel, Fernanda Tavares, Isabeli Fontana, Frankie Rayder, Angela Lindvall, Hilary Swank, Lakshmi Menon, Yamila Díaz, Anja Rubik and Natasha Poly.
