The Typically NSFW Pirelli Calendar, Now With Giant Sweaters

Simulation shoot, by Peter Lindbergh

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's the 50th Anniversary of the Pirelli Calendar, a catalog of the world's most beautiful women according to the Italian tire-magnate, generally shot in their skivvies. Following in the footsteps of last year's edition, models are shown clothed. In the picture above, they're sporting that "this-is-the-way-I-casually-lounge-about-the-house" look, which never actually happen because we're too busy wearing sweatpants and, depending on our thermostats, puffer coats.

According to The Cut, the results you see above is just a simulation shoot for press, consisting of calendar vets like Alek Wek, Karolina Kurkova, Helena Christensen, and Isabeli Fontana, and shot by photog big wigs Peter Lindbergh and Patrick Demarchelier. The actual photographer for 2014 is yet to be named. Still, if you need more inspiration for paired-back clothes and makeup, see below for the models in white button-downs and heels, and then, of course, lingerie.
