GIVE us your opin­ion of the 2013 Pirelli Cal­en­dar— and you could win a copy.

It hasn’t yet hit the desks of its VIP re­cip­i­ents but the world is buzzing about the 2013 ‘‘ Cal’’.

Pre­vi­ous edi­tions have fea­tured the world’s top models and screen stars. The 2013 cal­en­dar takes a more de­mure, some­what doc­u­men­tary ap­proach.

Un­der the cre­ative di­rec­tion of pho­to­jour­nal­ist Steve McCurry, best known for his 1984 Na­tional Ge­o­graphic ‘‘ Afghan girl’’ cover, the Pirelli Cal­en­dar has be­come a show­case for so­cial con­science.

It’s not just that the models are clothed; they spruik a range of char­i­ties. The cal­en­dar high­lights the work of each.

For his dream com­mis­sion, McCurry had ab­so­lute cre­ative free­dom. So did the other pho­tog­ra­phers re­cruited for the cal­en­dar, in­clud­ing An­nie Lei­bovitz, Richard Ave­don and Chanel de­signer Karl Lager­feld.

McCurry took his sub­jects to Brazil for the pho­tos. The bustling streets and lively fave­las, bars and night­clubs refuse to be back­ground im­ages.

The models in­clude Kar­lie Kloss, Sum­mer Rayne, Is­abeli Fon­tana, Hanaa Ben Ab­desslem, Liya Kebede, Kyleigh Kuhn and a preg­nant Adri­ana Lima.

Of the 20,000 printed, fewer than 200 come to Aus­tralia. They are not for sale, as they are gifts for a se­cret list of VIPs.
