Calendar Girls: Beautiful Humanitarians Celebrate Pirelli 2013
The Hotel Palace Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro was filled with a gorgeous crowd ready to fete 2013's Pirelli Calendar.
Actors Owen Wilson, Stephen Dorff, and Sophia Loren joined this year's photographer Steve McCurry and calendar girls Liya Kebede, Petra Nemcova, Elisa Sednaoui, and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem to celebrate the calendar's launch with a press conference and gala. At the gala, acrobats hung from the ceiling and did gymnastic stunts above the dining tables. After noting that journalists at the event asked lots of questions about the environment and foreign politics, Summer Rayne Oakes characterized the blue and white lighting scheme as "trippy."
Petra Nemcova said the real sparkle came from the other women in the calendar, like Isabeli Fontana and Kyleigh Kuhn. "They bring the light to so many lives!" Nemcova said.
