Adriana Lima Bares Her Bump for Pirelli Calendar
Adriana Lima is the latest celebrity mom to dare to bare her belly in print.
Known for their famous calendar’s sexy spreads featuring nude models, the tire company decided to take a much more modest approach for this year’s Brazilian-themed photo shoot, which captures a more covered-up Lima and 10 other bombshells including Petra Nemcova and Isabeli Fontana amid the country’s natural beauty.
“When I told the models there would be no nudity, some of them were disappointed,” casting director Jennifer Starr told New York.
But since each model was chosen to recognize their charitable efforts (including fighting for women’s rights), Pirelli feared full-fledged nudity would “dilute the message.”
Since the shoot, Lima is already back to showing off her fabulous body. The new mom-of-two recently shed the baby weight — and her clothes! — to walk in Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show, which airs Tuesday, Dec. 4.
