Adriana Lima’s Baby Bump: Pregnant Model Is Sexy in New Calendar (PHOTO)
Pregnancy is sexy! At least, that’s the message that photographer Steve McCurry and Adriana Lima are conveying with his portrait of her in the 2013 Pirelli Calendar (shown below).
Pirelli, an Italian tire company, releases a calendar every year that showcases beautiful models, often in varying states of undress. But Steve McCurry took this year’s calendar in a surprising new direction: the totally G-rated route.
“I would say I am a street photographer doing 'found situations,’” the photographer says. “You can photograph nudes anywhere. But these models are clothed, and each of them has her own charity. They are purposeful and idealistic people. So I wanted to photograph them in a special place, and Rio was perfect for this."
Adriana is currently expecting her second child with Serbian basketballer Marko Jarić, having welcomed daughter Valentina in November 2009.
Sharing the spotlight with her in the calendar are civilian Brazilian natives and Rio street art, but we’re having trouble taking our eyes off this sultry snapshot.
