FashionTV heads to Milan for the Pirelli Calendar 50th Anniversary Presentation. The night’s main focus was on the 2014 anniversary calendar shot by Helmut Newton in 1986, portraying super sexy models and Pirelli tires against a gorgeous Tuscan landscape.
“This edition is a special one because the photos never came up. They were taken in 1986,” says Marco Tronchetti Provera.Newton was not able to finish the 1986 calendar due to family problems, so his assistant finished the shoot. Pirelli decided to use photographer Bert Stern’s pictures for that year instead, so Newton’s images were kept in the company’s archives. It was pulled out in 2014 because of the coincidence that 1986 and 2014 have the same calendar year.

Ana Beatriz Barros tells us the craziest photo shoot of her life was for Pirelli when she had to kiss a chicken. That is one lucky chicken!
