The Pirelli Calendar, known by insiders as “The Cal”, is an annual publication that has been around for 50 years. But… you can’t buy it or order it. It’s only sent to those who are a part of the fashion industry elite. It’s talked a lot about but rarely seen. That mystery is what keeps it being talked about even though, not many will actually see it.
Candice is no stranger to the high-fashion world, having been featured in V Magazine, Vogue Italia, and W Magazine. You may have also seen her in campaigns for Lane Bryant, Simply Be, Marina Rinaldi and others.
This is not the first time that Candice has worked with Carine Roitfeld and Steven Meisel. Candice was featured in a Harper’s Bazaar fashion spread alongside actress Gabourey Sidibe that was styled by Carine and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. And Steven Meisel shot her W Magazine cover.
“My presence on this set – the most glamorous in the world – is a sign that things are really changing.”
E Online said it best when they said: “It took half a century, but progress is progress.”
This year’s theme is fetishism so we can only imagine how sexy that photo shoot will be. Daily Mail UK reports that Candice and the other models were on set “suited up in latex, leather and bustiers for the spread, channeling their inner dominatrix.”
The other 11 models to be included in the 2015 Pirelli calendar are: Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Sasha Luss, Anna Ewers, Carolyn Murphy, Cameron Russell, Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson and Joan Smalls.
Congratulations to Candice on this historical achievement and we, too, hope this is a sign of change within the fashion industry.
