May 2008 seems like an age away when the 2009 Pirelli calender was shot. But if 6 months seems like a world away, just image what the Okavango Delta of Botswana would have been like.
That was the location for the 2009 Pirelli calendar shoot which was complete with a amazing model cast featuring Mariacarla Boscono, Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela, Lara Stone, Daria Werbowy, Kemp Muhl, Rianne Ten Haken and Emanuela de Paula.
Directed and photographed by Peter Beard, the shoot also co-starred native wildlife like elephants and big insects adorning Isabeli Fontana’s face.
Check out the behind the scenes video above, the stunning Okavango Delta is perfectly complimented by the stunning models posing mostly nude. Just don’t flinch when you see the bug on Isabeli’s face!
