New Pirelli Calendar To Have Fetish Theme And Feature Plus-Size Model – the 2015 edition of the world’s most famous calendar will have some unique features as it is the first time in its 50-year existence that Pirelli will have featured a plus-size model.

The calendar also promises to be a bit more steamy than normal as former Vogue Paris chief editor Carine Roitfeld, who is behind the styling this year, has gone for a fetish theme with lots of latex clothing on show.

The plus-size model featured in the 2015 calendar is 29-year old Candice Huffine who has been seen in a plus-size fashion special before when she joined models Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn on the cover of Vogue Italia’s special “Curvy” issue in 2011.

Incidentally if you get the chance to meet Candice then you should know that she is not a fan of the term plus-size model: ‘I understand its existence, but I personally don’t use the term in my private life; I prefer curvy.’

Joining Candice in this year’s Pirelli calendar are Adrianna Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Sasha Luss, Anna Ewers, Carolyn Murphy, Cameron Russell, Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson and Joan Smalls.

Although the fetish clothing is not to everyone’s taste it seems that one of the models was converted during the shoot with Gigi Hadid saying: ‘I’m wearing all latex in one shot, which is very cool. I’ve never worn latex before but everyone’s, like, telling me that it would suck because you get all sweaty and you can’t breathe. But I really like it and now I want latex leggings.’

The Pirelli calendar has always had something of an air of mystery as it is not available to buy either online or from a shop and it is sent out to a specially selected group of people. Nobody knows how to get on that list although if you aren’t very famous then selling plenty of Pirelli tyres is thought to give you a good chance of getting your hands on a calendar. This is why issues of the calendar often reach high prices when they come   up for sale on sites like eBay.

As well as the rarity value of the Pirelli calendar another thing that sets it apart from other calendars is the high quality of models who have featured on its glossy pages. Former Pirelli calendar girls include: Naomi Campbell, Sienna Miller, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, Mila Jovovich, Heidi Klum, Mena Suvari, Miranda Kerr and Sophia Loren. Sophia Loren was actually the oldest person to appear in a Pirelli calendar when she posed for it back in 2007 at the age of 71-years old.

This year’s Pirelli calendar which has been shot by top fashion photographer Steven Meisel is going to be previewed in November.If you are on the list you will be getting a special delivery but for the rest of us it will be a wait for the fashion magazines to show us what we are missing.

Cindy Crawford poses totally nude for W magazine at 48-years oldCindy Crawford’s Nude Birthday Photos – the stunning supermodel is 48-years old today and has celebrated her birthday by appearing nude in the latest issue of W magazine.

Cindy seems to be totally undaunted by anything these days as she stripped off to be completely naked for the black and white photo feature for the top-selling style mag.

She is clearly very body confident and the photos appear just a couple of days after Cindy was seen out for lunch in California wearing a top that clearly had no bra underneath.

Although Cindy has officially left the world of modelling since 2011 the mother of 2 clearly still has what it takes when it comes to a sexy photoshoot.

Cindy was something of a trailblazer in her early modelling days and was one of the first models to agree to appear nude in an issue of Playboy in 1988, featuring again 10 years later in 1998. She also quickly realised the career benefits of diversifying into other areas and had roles in movies and on tv. She also has a number of appearances in music videos including the video for the 1994 Jon Bon Jovi track “Please Come Home For Christmas” rated by many as one of the sexiest videos of all-time.

Sophia Loren To Make New Movie – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 05 July 2013

Sophia Loren - older but still great cleavageSophia Loren To Make New Movie –  screen legend Sophia Loren is to make a return to our movie screens with a part in her son’s new film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter and a number of Italian newspapers the actress is set to star in La Voce Umana (The Human Voice) , a movie being directed by her son, 40-year old Edoardo Ponti.

The film is to be set in a number of different Italian locations including Naples and Rome, with a substantial part of the shooting due to take place in Ostia, a harbour town on the Tyrrhenian coast near to Rome.

The story of The Human Voice is based around a 1930 Jean Cocteau play which portrays the mental breakdown of a woman after she learns that her lover for the last 5 years is about to marry another woman. The story has previously been filmed in 1948 by Roberto Rossellini who used the plot of La Voce Umana as part of his anthology piece L’Amore. This earlier version had the acclaimed Oscar-winning Italian actress Anna Magnani playing the role that Loren is to take on in the new movie.

Despite now being 78-years old Loren is still a stunning looking woman as cab be sen from the photo shown here which was taken last year. There are many woman less than half her age who would love to rock a body half as good as hers. She last acted over 3 years ago when she appeared in the Italian tv movie My House Is Full Of Mirrors when she played her own mother!

Although it could seem a little awkward for Edoardo to direct his own mother in a movie he does have some experience of this already as he directed Loren in his 2002 movie Between Strangers (Cuori Estrani).

The Human Voice is expected to start shooting later on this month with a likely release date of some time next year.

Best Busts of All-Time, Pregnant Man

Best Bust of All-Time – Marilyn Monroe has come top of a poll to find the best bust in history organised by Next’s lingerie department.

Marilyn beat our current queen of cleavage Holly Willoughby who still managed to come in second in the poll.

According to retailer Next more than half of all their female customers wear a bra with a cup size of DD or bigger. They asked 1,000 people shopping (both men and women) who were buying from their Gorgeous range for the bigger busted woman which famous woman they thought had the best bust.

Although in just under 6 weeks Marilyn will have been dead for 50 years it is clear that she has certainly not been forgotten. She was famous for her sexy performances in films such as The Seven Year Itch, How To Marry A Millionaire and Some Like It Hot.

She started off with a variety of small acting roles but in 1949 when she was short of money she was persuaded by photographer Tom Kelley to pose nude for the princely sum of $50. In 1952 one of these nude photos of Marilyn appeared in a calendar at a time when she was just starting to get more movie roles. After giving an interview explaining the circumstances behind the photos Marilyn received mostly positive public support.

She did a further nude shoot with photographer Bert Stern for US Vogue magazine just 6 weeks before she died The photos in this shoot were later published separately and are known as The Last Sitting.

in case you were wondering what size Marilyn was she was said to be a dress size 16 (although this is a little smaller than our modern UK size 16) and wear a size 36D bra.

The Top 10 Best Busts of All-Time as voted for by Next customers are: Read the rest of this entry »
