Model overload? 

The world's top posers gathered together to be shot for Pirelli, the Italian tire company that puts out a stunning (albeit scantily clad) model calendar each year. To celebrate the photo calendar's upcoming 50th edition, the brand went all out and secured well-known beauties such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Helena Christensen, Karolina Kurkova, Alek Wek, Miranda Kerr and Isabeli Fontana to help promote the occasion.

Noted fashion photographers Peter Lindbergh and Patrick Demarchelier shot the images in tasteful color and black-and white, as the beach-bound models posed in undergarments and crisp white shirts. (Bottoms must no longer be in style.) 

Does this mean these images just might make it into the famous calendar, set for a Nov. 21 release? That has yet to be confirmed, but either way, it doesn't seem like the ladies had a bad time working. 

We get it: you're leggy. The models pose for a full-length shot.
