I don't understand how anyone can find Gemma Ward sexy. She looks like a child. Almost like a baby .. I'm not saying that she doesn't have an insteresting look, because she does, but she's the least sexy top model out there. Why anyone would want to put her in a calendar which is supposed to be about sex appeal is beoynd me.

Gemma for the Pirelli calendar? It seems weird to me...
Dont get me wrong I like gem and all but shes just not a
typical Pirelli girl by any means. Hmm...I wonder who else has shot for it?

Ugh...I don't want to see any of these girls in Pirelli. Gemma? Lily? No thanks. They might be pretty but they aren't sexy, which is usually what Pirelli is about.

After scanning the image of Gemma (And hearing of some of the other names within the calendar), I can't help but wonder if Pirelli's taking a strictly cultural-centric direction this year...it would be a most bizarre path. In the days of traditional Japan a Geisha in Gemma's outfit would be considered "sexy" and provocative, but in worldwide perspective I'm not sure if it works.

Sensual culture aesthetics? Mm...

Catherine's exclusivity it's over (i think)

the thing about Pirelli, at least in my impressions, is that it's not really about overt sexiness. There has been boobs in that thing forever, but there have only been a few years that are really in your face sexy, but that is really down to personal opinion. Its hard to make a decision based on one picture, but the calendar could still be full of boobs

The Gemma image is great, but on the other hand, it's not very Pirelli. Or maybe its simply one of the more "reader-friendly" shots which can be run in magazines without offending anyone. I've seen this girl look very erotic in French Vogue, and I will be disappointed if she's not let loose again in this calendar.

The way Catherine's agent was talking in an article, she seemed a cert to shoot for the calendar, but then again, the UK Vogue cover he spoke about didn't work out. So Vogue China confirms she is in it? I'm almost disappointed to hear it. There's so much "push" surrounding this model, I'm sick of it already, and she hasn't even had time to show us what she's made of (though we might literally see that in the calendar).

From ninemsn.com's Australia Fashion Week Blog:

This week I met the man who is shaping Catherine's career. Stephen Lee is an Aussie too, who moved from top agency Chic here in Sydney to Next Models in New York, where he manages the affairs of more supers than you can poke a celery stick at.

"My job is picking up the phone and saying no to people," the extremely laid back Lee says, "it's about exclusivity and longevity. You don't want to have a girl everywhere, doing every campaign at once. At the moment, she has one French campaign, an Italian campaign, her US campaign is DKNY, and she was just shot for the Pirelli Calendar last week. I have Catherine's career mapped out for the next three years."

Lily for Pirelli? I'd pay thousands of Sophia Loren than one Lily Donaldson.
