Get in fast to win a cov­eted Pirelli cal­en­dar for 2011

Herald Sun - Motoring - - News -

THE end of the year is here, and that means a few very lucky peo­ple are wait­ing for their 2011 Pirelli Cal­en­dar to ar­rive on their doorstep.

Only 10,000 of the cal­en­dars are pro­duced, and fewer than 200 will come to Aus­tralia, mainly to be given to a con­fi­den­tial list of VIPs and celebri­ties — and six lucky

cars­Guide read­ers. Yes, Pirelli and cars­Guide will be giv­ing away six of the 2011 cal­en­dars, which have been pho­tographed by le­gendary fashion de­signer Karl Lager­feld, the mae­stro of Chanel.

From his Paris stu­dio, Lager­feld has cre­ated a trib­ute to an­cient Greek and Ro­man mythol­ogy, with 36 mono­chrome pho­tos.

‘‘Ac­tors and mod­els bring these new he­roes to life and de­pict a new con­cept of the beau­ti­ful,’’ Lager­feld says.

His pho­tos fea­ture ac­tor Ju­lianne Moore and 20 of the world’s top mod­els — 15 fe­male and five male, the lat­ter a rare fo­cus for the Pirelli cal­en­dar, and one that might make it even more ap­peal­ing to women.

Aus­tralia’s Abbey Lee Ker­shaw re­turns for a star­ring role, joined by Bianca Balti and Elisa Sed­naoui, Den­mark’s Freja Beha Erich­sen, Brazil’s Is­abeli Fon­tana, Poland’s Mag­dalena Frack­owiak and Anja Ru­bik, In­dia’s Lakshmi Menon, the US’s Heidi Mount and Erin Was­son, Rus­sia’s Natasha Poly, Hol­land’s Lara Stone, Canada’s Daria Wer­bowy, Aus­tria’s Iris Strubeg­ger and Ja­maica’s Jeneil Wil­liams.

The male mod­els are French­men Bap­tiste Gi­abi­coni and Se­bastien Jon­deau, Amer­i­cans Brad Kroenig and Gar­ret Neff and Briton Jake Davis.

Each of the six cal­en­dars will be won by a reader in one of six state group­ings — New South Wales/ ACT, Vic­to­ria, Queens­land, South Aus­tralia/NT, Western Aus­tralia and Tas­ma­nia.

And as a spe­cial bonus, one reader will roll off with a set of Pirelli Cin­tu­rato tyres, de­signed to re­duce fuel con­sump­tion but main­tain per­for­mance — two key abil­i­ties that have seen Pirelli be­come the of­fi­cial tyre of For­mula One.

To en­ter, go to cars­guide.com.au and in the ‘Win a 2011 Pirelli Cal­en­dar’ story’ check out the gallery of Lager­feld’s pho­tos and then in the poll link, tell us in about 25 words if you think they will ap­peal as much to women as to men and why. To be in the run­ning for the bonus set of Pirelli Cin­tu­rato tyres, add your age group and gen­der, and to have a sec­ond en­try for the tyres, tell us when you last re­placed your tyres, how much per tyre they cost you, and what kind of ve­hi­cle you drive.

En­tries close at 5pm on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 20, 2011. Win­ners will be no­ti­fied by email and their names will be pub­lished on cars­guide. com. au on Tues­day, Jan­uary 25, 2011.

Clas­si­cal: (main) Erin Was­son as Ajax and (above) Bap­tiste Gi­abi­coni as Apollo.
