Pirelli Calendar which is normally famed for featuring naked models, decided to drop all of that in the name of charity. This year, the 2013 calendar features models that suprising kept their clothes on.

Steve McCurry, who was commissioned to shoot this infamous calendar, is well-known as a documentary photojournalist - famed for a 1984 National Geographic cover of a young Afghan woman - and for the Pirelli Calendar commission, he took the models to the streets of Brazil.

“This year’s models were chosen specifically for their extensive charity work and it was thought that nudity might 'dilute the message'", casting director Jennifer Starr explains.

Twenty thousand copies of the calendar will be printed but none are for sale. They are all given to a secret list of VIPs as gifts. But of course one calendar is already listed on eBay for about $1000.

The calendar features models Karlie Kloss, Summer Rayne, Isabeli Fontana, Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, Liya Kibede, Kyleigh Kuhn and a heavily pregnant Adriana Lima. Click more to learn more about these models.
