Today in Moscow, the 2011 Pirelli Calender, was presented to the world's press. The event was held at the prestigious Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko theatre. "The Cal 2011" features the creative genius of Karl Lagerfeld, whose sense for art and aesthetics is renowned throughout the world.
Mythology is a calendar that reflects one of the deepest passion of Lagerfeld: the Greek and Roman mythology. It takes the viewer to the roots of classical civilisation and to the Old World. All the photos are in black and white: "actresses and models bring these new heroes to life and decipt a new concept of the beautiful", said Karl Lagerlfeld, who, within these calendar has offered up an idyllic, immortal representation of beauty.
Mythology has 21 protagonists: 15 female models (including Bianca Balti, Elisa Sednaoui, Freja Beha Erichsen and Isabeli Fontana), 5 male models (with the Lagerfeld's muse: Baptiste Giabiconi) plus the American actress Julianne Moore.
