Supermodel Kate Moss has posed naked for the 2012 Pirelli tyres calender.
Behind the scenes shots of 37-year-old model have appeared in Italian Vogue ahead of the release of the tyres company calender later this year.
The latest calender has been shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti – incidentally an old boyfriend of Kate who immortalised her in the 1990’s ads for Obsession by Calvin Klein.
Kate, who is gracing the pages of the calender for the second time, is appearing along with other beauties including Ukranian actress Milla Jovovich and Dutch model Saskia de Brauw – the only one to pose totally naked for the shoot.
The 12 models were flown to Murtoli on the Mediterranean island of Corsica for the week long assignment.
An insider on the set said: “It was a fantastic assignment with the emphasis really being placed on feminine beauty and the pictures are fabulous the girls look really, really sexy.”
Unlike last year’s edition which had a theme of Greek and Roman mythology, the idea for the 2012 calendar was to underline natural female beauty.
The Pirelli calendar has been going for more than 40 years and is a limited edition publication given to special VIPs only.
