This is the first time Italian fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti has shot the Pirelli Calendar, one of the most anticipated calendars of the year. Filmed entirely location in the gorgeous island of Corsica, Mario Sorrenti intimately captures the raw beauty of these women in a wild, natural setting. The Making of Pirelli Calendar 2012 was directed by Stuart Chapman, and produced by Utopia Films.
Watch the full length film of the Making of the Pirelli Calendar 2011 shot by photographer Karl Lagerfeld. "Mythology" is the theme of the calendar as Lagerfeld was inspired by Greek mythology and cast his models as gods and goddesses. As Daria Werbowy admits in the film "..you have to be a warrior to be a model..and we are kind of like unearthly human beings".
The 2011 Pirelli Calendar was shot at Lagerfeld's studio in Paris and features supermodels Daria Werbowy, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Ana Rubik, Erin Wasson, Isabeli Fontana, Lara Stone, Magdalena Frackowiak, Brad Kroenig, Baptiste Giabiconi, Heidi Mount, Elisa Sednoui, Freja Beha, Iris Strubegger, Jack Davies, Bianca Balti, Garrett Neff, Jeneil Williams, Natasha Poly and Lakshmi Menon.

Inside the visual world of Scott Schuman aka ‘The Sartorialist’

He explains "the internet is the world shrinking.. and it's given us a digital parkbench". This film was directed by Tyler Manson.
This is a rare treat, being able to watch a shoot by photographer Steven Meisel that's been captured on video. Meisel is one of the world's hottest fashion photographers, and a regular contributor to Vogue Italia and Vogue USA. He never lets anyone shoot him on camera, and rarely lets any video crews on any of his sets. But perhaps now that Vogue Italia now has a hot new website, Vogue.it, it looks like the legendary photographer has had a change of heart.
A genius storyteller, for the June edition of Vogue Italia Steven Meisel looks to the wilderness for inspiration and shoots the story "Wild Is the Wind" with supermodel Eva Herzigova. It's a styled by Meisel's favorite beauty team - hairstylist Julien d'Ys and makeup artist Pat McGrath.
Everything Steven Meisel shoots is magic, and this one has a raw, enchanting mood about it. What can we say except we love it. Check out Vogue Italia's new website, the art direction is stunning and it's on our daily must read list.
