There's a lot that the Pirelli Calendar has done over its 50-year history – photographed Miranda Kerr topless with a sloth, created gold penis-plates and used up about a year's worth of bodypaint (probably) on a single shot – but they've never cast a plus-size model. For their 2015 fetish-themed calendar, they're looking to rectify that oversight with Candice Huffine, a Maryland native signed to Muse.
If Huffine looks familiar, that's because she's previously been shot in Vogue Italia's groundbreaking Curvy issue in 2011. Huffine graces the pages of next year's Pirelli Calendar alongside Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls and Karen Elson, which was photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld.
Take a look at what's in store with these behind-the-scenes images, shot by Marc Regas. The full calendar will be revealed in November. If you still hungry for more of high-gloss, high-glam erotica, check out our September feature on the Pirelli archive.
