Adriana Lima Bares Her Bump for Pirelli Calendar

Adriana Lima is the latest celebrity mom to dare to bare her belly in print.

Posing in a cropped top and flowing skirt, the Victoria’s Secret Angel (who has since welcomed daughter Sienna) shows off her baby bump in Pirelli‘s 2013 calendar.

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.

how is that daring?

I like it. The Demi Moore preggo pose was getting really old to me. This is actually refreshing.

Ugh, will people stop using the word “prego” once and for all. Just my opinion to hate that word, don’t judge!

yah, im sure thats TOTALLY what men want to see when they open their 2013 calender, a pregnant belly. ?!? what were they thinking??

confused on

Those links are to articles from November of 2011. Its sort of sneaky to link a pic of her with rock hard abs from before she was even pregnant with a title of “already shedding the baby weight”.

BBB on

I didn’t even know she was pregnant again let alone already had the baby and had bounced back into shape.

She’s so pretty. One of the prettiest models out there today.

who is pirelli marketing their 2013 calendar to? self-hating women who want to see semi-nude models as a reminder of how inferior they are or forward-thinking men who are so ecstatic to finally see these models recognized for their charitable efforts in a tasteful calendar …. because all the other pictures of them posing in full-fledged nudity is so 2012?
