It is also the 'inspiration' behind the Kingfisher Calendar concept in India
Appearance on the calendar has become a mark of distinction for models that are chosen, and over the years the supermodels and celebrities who have appeared have included Naomi Campbell, Gisele Budchen, kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Sienna Miller, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez etc.
Its first time in 38 years that an Indian face (and body!) has appeared on the calendar... and who better than the gorgeous Laxmi Menon. Though the smouldering model has to share space with two other big shots, its definitely a good beginning!
The Italian tiremaker tapped famous fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld to create the 38th edition of its limited-edition calendar with Greek-themed "Mythology." 36 photos depicting Greek gods, heroes and myths are immaculately conceptualised by Lagerfeld. Appearing are an international group of models: 15 women, five men and Lagerfeld's friend and actress Julianne Moore as Hera, the wife of god of gods Zeus.
On the launch Karl Lagefeld was heard saying that he produced “the visual version of Homer. I did with my camera what he did with his pen, although we understand that he probably didn't use a pen.”
