Preview: Karl Lagerfeld's Pirelli 2011 Calendar

The 2011 Pirelli calendar launched today in Moscow. Captured by Karl Lagerfeld and featuring 15 female models, 5 male models and actress Julianne Moore, the all-star cast included Magdalena Frackowiak, Anja Rubik, Natasha Poly,  Abbey Lee Kershaw and Baptiste Giabiconi.

The multi-talented Lagerfeld stated that the calendar is: “the visual version of Homer. I did with my camera what he did with his pen, although we understand that he probably  didn't use a pen.” Lagerfeld captured the cast in his Paris studio back in April, creating 36 photos in total, each inspired by ancient Greece and Rome. "I wanted to do something different. I looked at all the other calendars, with such a concept and boys and girls like this, it was an easy job.”

For the launch today, Lagerfeld was accompanied by Natasha Poly (who showed off her new brunette hair colour), Erin Wasson, Natasha Poly and Sebastian Jondeau. Each model was given a persona to embody for the calendar  - Julianne Moore became Hera, while Lara Stone took on Aphrodite and Baptiste Giabiconi plays both Narcissus and Apollo.

Other characters include:

 Jeneil Williams (Hades), Brad Kroenig (Zeus), Bianca Balti (as a Bacchante), Elisa Sednaoui (Flora, Echo), Freja Beha Erichsen (Apollo, Pollux, Orpheus), Isabeli Fontana (a Bacchante), Magdalena Frackowiak (Athena, Estia), Anja Rubik (Hermes, Terpsichore), Abbey Lee Kershaw (Echo, Castor, Eurydice), Lakshmi Menon (a Bacchante), Heidi Mount (Aurora, Amphitrite), Erin Wasson (Ajax, a Bacchante), Natasha Poly (Melpomene), Daria Werbowy (Artemis, Penthesilea), Iris Strubegger (Athena), Sebastien Jondeau (Mars), Garret Neff (Bacchus), and Jake Davis (Achilles).
