THE world's top models, including Victoria's Secret Angels Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio, feature in the latest Pirelli Calendar.

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Italian tyre manufacturer praises the world's supermodels, exposing them in a sexy, yet discreet photoshoot by renowned fashion photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh.

The aesthetically-pleasing beauties are seen in three different looks: wearing black corsets, black oversized jumpers as well as men white shirts, while standing on their naked feet and Louboutin black stilettos respectively.

Smokey make-up embraces the shoot of black outfits, while natural fresh faces embrace the white and clean group photos.

Other stars to appear in the 2014 edition are Helena Christensen, Alek Wek, Karolina Kurkova and Isabeli Fontana.

The gang pose up-close to one another in a pared-down group shot, showing the supermodels unusually covered, which feels a move away from the nudity for which the calendar had become famous.

This time Pirelli went for a simple shoot featuring the world's most beautiful women, exposing their sex appeal without showing them naked.

Peter Lindbergh relives his iconic 90s black and white photographs of the original supermodels, including Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell, in the shoot.

The calendar is set to be out on 21 November.
