The Making of the 2011 Pirelli Calendar
Karl Lagerfeld was given the honors this year to photograph the 2011 Pirelli Calender, sort of like the Victoria’s Secret fashion show of calenders (if that makes any sense). His vision for this year’s project was based on the gods and goddesses glorified in Greek and Roman mythology. This is a suitable theme since models are “unearthly human beings,” according to Canadian supermodel Daria Werbowy who portrays Artemis and Penthesilia.
As a fan of male ass, I was very pleased to see Miss Lagerfeld add some testosterone to the mix a la Baptiste Giabiconi, Brad Kroenig, Garrett Neff, Jake Davis and Lagerfeld’s long-time-sexy-as-hell bodyguard Sebastian Jondeau. I mean…we are talking about Greek mythology, a set of beliefs strongly associated with glorifying the male form…and it’s no secret Miss Lagerfeld loves the male form.
Can we talk about Jamaican beauty Janeil Williams’ portrayal as Hades? Granted she rocked it out on set, but damn! Why does the only dark-skinned black model have to be cast as Hades, god of the underworld and death? Isn’t it bad enough that black people have a negative reputation with death and crime to begin with? I guess this explains Miss Lagerfeld’s decision to cast the only black model as the most horrific creature in Greek mythology.
Technically this video is NSFW, but granted that 99% of female models are built like 9-year old boys without penises only means you’re most likely going to be safe.
Baptiste Giabiconi as Apollo, god of music.
