The legendary calendar has recently celebrated its 50 years with a special edition by Peter Lindbergh & Patrick Demarchelier starring models such as Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Helena Christensen, Isabeli Fontana, Karolina Kurkova and Alek Wek.
For the 2015 edition, photographer Steven Meisel selected the 29-years-old plus model Candice Huffine from Georgetown D.C.
This will be the first time a “curvy” woman will appear on the glamorous calendar, renowned for its artistic nudes and limited availability.
Meisel’s calendar, styled by Carine Roitfeld, will have fetish as main theme, and it will feature also Adriana Lima, Karen Elson, Gigi Hadid, Sasha Luss, Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann and Natalia Vodianova.
This is a huge break in the calendar’s tradition, that always featured skinny models, promoting an impossible beauty standard. Candice will hopefully be just the first of a long series, establishing a new and healthiest trend.
