The infamous annual calendar is the equivalent of the fashion world’s high school yearbook.

The Pirelli Calendar is one of the most talked about publications of the year- but how many of us have actually laid our hands on it or seen the finished product?

This is because you can not physically buy the 12-page calendar it is sent to those in the know, and the secrecy behind it certainly creates hype and mystery that has propelled it to iconic status.

Riding on the Fifty Shades of Grey buzz, this year’s calendar is centred around fetishism, shot by Steven Meisel.

Former Vogue Paris Editor Carine Roitfeld has been enlisted to style the shoots, which will feature some of the most beautiful women in the world.

The 2015 lineup includes Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Karen Elson and upcoming model of the moment Gigi Hadid.

Also, for the first time in ‘The Cal’s’ 50-something year history, a plus size model will feature.

Volumptious brunette Candice Huffine, below, was once told to lose a stone when she began her modelling career aged 14.

She has said, "My presence on this set - the most glamorous in the world - is a sign that things are really changing."
