Among other A-Listers, JLo poses, to be frank, rather unsexily (IMHO), as Ava Gardner (the urban-born Jlo looks sexier as postmodern diva rather than retrobabe), in the new 2006 Pirelli catalogue. According to Hello!Magazine:
"British catwalk queen Kate Moss and Brazilian stunner Gisele Bundchen also appear in the calendar, which will soon be sent out to Pirelli clients all over the world. The exclusive corporate gift, which is not available to the public, is famous for depicting the world's most beautiful women in daringly risqu� poses."
Or, as The Herald puts it:
"The Pirelli calendar has steadily grown in status since its launch in 1964. It is famous for employing some of the world's greatest photographers to take pictures of some of the world's most beautiful women in some of the most spectacular settings across the world.The calendar is known to photographers, simply as 'the Cal', but is not available for sale to the general public. It is provided each year as an exclusive corporate gift with a worldwide distribution of about 45,000 copies.The limited edition calendar, which will be launched today in Paris, features Kate Moss on the cover despite a recent scandal over drug-taking allegations."
