latex calendar girls

no not the Pussycat dolls or some catchy British girl band that never seem to wear anything else but latex; this is by my favourite 70's Pop Artist - Allen Jones.

its the Pirelli calendar from - would you believe from 1973 and the complete set of images are here. you'll need to navigate the flash page to the that year and then make sure you click to zoom in. the images aren't huge but its a very interesting collection with considerable amount of transformations involved.

i also really like May's image as its a plastic molded body being worn by the model as if she's waiting to be sealed within the rest of it.

i've been told that they do sometimes appear on ebay in the UK and after a quick search, i found one here on for a reasonable 15£.

Is it just me, or does really stiff, shiny, almost sculpted hair go really *really* well with the tight and shiny latex look?


Just wondering,

Bradley Poe (who admittedly grew up in the late 1970s and the 1980s, so maybe the structured hair of those days had something to do with it)

His wife models for him and appears in the calendar I think. She does in Allen Jones Projects and his other fetish book.

These were some of the first high art images as opposed to fetish catalogs which I saw latex being used. Very cool and very classy and slick.
