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.

The Pirelli calendar is shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Carine Roitfeld and features 12 pages of gorgeous models.

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.

Candace described her Pirelli calendar experience as a sign of change in the fashion industry. She told British Vogue:

“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.

    About time, though as lovely as Candice Huffine is, I would hardly consider her ‘plus size’, more ‘average woman sized’. But as she said, at least it’s progress, which, in such an elitist, not-very-realistic-even-though-they-want-us-to-buy-their-stuff industry, is pretty epic progress. Though, as soon as I heard it’s a fetish shoot, I kinda figured. It’s like the only way such a gorgeous ‘plus sized’ model can be used in their world is if she is fetishised. Which is kinda ironic when you consider that the elitist end of the fashion industry fetishisies those size 00 models.
