Karl Lagerfeld's much anticipated Pirelli calendar has been revealed for the first time. The designer launched his latest work, "Mythology", in Moscow yesterday. The calendar features black-and-white photos of 15 female models, 5 male models, and Julianne Moore which were taken in his Paris studio. Each have been captured as a different deity from ancient Rome and Greece. For instance, Moore plays Hera, Lara Stone portrays Aphrodite, and Baptiste Giabiconi takes on the roles of both Narcissus and Apollo.

"I wanted to do something different. I looked at all the other calendars," he said, adding his had a message "of timeless beauty and youth." "With such a concept and boys and girls like this, it was an easy job."
