Ordinarily I do an annual post on the most amazing and artful calendars for each new year, but this year snuck up on me so quickly, that other than the Lavazza 2011 calendar and recently, the 2011 Miss Tuning calendar, I didn't get a chance to share this wonderful example with you.
Even though we are coming upon April already, if you didn't get a chance to look at Pirelli's spectacularly sexy calendar -all 36 photos- shot by Karl Lagerfeld (the creative director of CHANEL), it's worth a look.
The black and white 2011 Calendar is an homage to Greek Mythology with scantily clad (and in some cases, entirely nude) and stunningly beautiful male and female models portraying Greek Gods and Goddesses such as Hermes, Bacchus, Apollo, Achilles, Aurora, Zeus and actress Julianne Moore as Hera. Other models in the calendar include Anja Rubik, Baptiste Giabiconi, Iris Strubegger, Lara Stone, Erin Wasson, Bianca Balti, Garret Neff, Isabeli Fontana, Heidi Mount, Natasha Poly and Magdalena Frackowiak.
Several of the following images may be considered very risque by some and should be considered NSFW.

The Pirelli calendar is not available for purchase, but instead is designed for special Pirelli customers and clients.
