Read Anne's response Mario Sorrenti's 2012 Pirelli Calendar Empowers Women at AOC Sensual Rebel.
Kate Moss sums up Mario Sorrenti’s relationship with women by saying that he truly adores us, including our female form. I’ve written these same words on many occasions about Mario Sorrenti and am thrilled to see a Smart Sensuality man behind the lens of the 2012 Pirelli Calendar.
Must we go backwards next year Pirelli? Why not press forward with women and men photographers who truly love females as we are in our best, authentic version? The world needs more sensual, emotional, natural, intimacy-seeking connections.
Why not empower us as these beautiful women say — not imaging us in a cold intellectualism as Lagerfeld did last year — or pornified as Terry Richardson did in 2010? If you stick to interpretations of an Italian vision of sensual women, you can hardly go wrong. Pirelli. Thanks for the reverie; it takes little prompting for me to write passionately about la dolce vita. Anne
