Alek Wek Stars in Pirelli’s 50th Anniversary Calendar [Photos]


Long gone are the days of girls on bikes or pin-up models for calendars. Italian tire brand Pirelli has enlisted some of the world’s most famous models for its 50th anniversary. African beauty Alek Wek alongside Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, Helena Christensen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Isabeli Fontana put their natural beauty on display for the series shot by Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh.

While past Pirelli campaigns usually involve nudity in exotic locations, this year’s spread features the models in white t-shirts, oversized sweaters and of course- heels. The calendar, set for an early 2014 release will be distributed to top figures in the entertainment industry and not sold on shelves.
