Lily Cole, Daisy Lowe, Rosie Huntington, Miranda Kerr, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Catherine McNeil, Ana Beatriz Barros, Gracie Carvalho, Marloes Horst, Eniko Mihalik, Georgina Stojilkovic: 2010 is going to be a good year for undressed models. We’ve never fully understood the connection between Pirelli Tires and the steamy, mostly nude catalog of popular mannequins they cook up every year (it also tells you what day it is, bonus!). Must be an Italian thing. In any case, this year the lensman in charge is none other than than the beloved photo-satyr Terry Richardson, a world-accomplished expert in top-tier model nudity. As the behind-the-scenes shots provided by Italian Vanity Fair show, it was all smiles, milk, and bananas when the cantankerous Richardson shot Lowe, Cole, Kerr, and others in Brazil this year. January feels so far away right now.
