Trust Kaisar Lagerfeld to do things differently. In a departure for the calendar, the latest edition includes four male models, who wear silver-coloured, conch-shaped cod pieces. Also, it’s first time that the calendar has featured a Indian model, Lakshmi Menon. Julianne Moore was the only model who wasn’t shot nude!
Karl Lagerfeld, the German fashion designer, who said he chose the myths of ancient Greece as the theme because as a child he loved reading the Iliad and other epics. The best part is the Kaisar compared himself to the chronicler of Greek mythology, calling himself the “visual version of Homer … I did it with my camera instead of with my pen.”
The collectors item, the Pirelli Calendar 2011 was launched in Moscow on the 30th of November 2010 and a very reliable source told me that NDTV’s Pronnoy Roy is the only Indian to get a Pirelli Calendar.
