The heavily coveted time-keeper photographed by Steven Meisel

Pirelli has long been both the best in performance tires and the best in babilicious photography, its heavily coveted calendar dating back to 1964.

That is, of course, in addition to the countless periodicals, magazines, fanzines and museum walls which have displayed his work. Being the [...]
