Why you might ask? Because for the first year ever, the calendar features its first plus-size model, Candice Huffine. The sexy spread also includes some of our other favorites, including Joan Smalls and Karen Elson.
Although this is a first for Huffine, she's no stranger to the modeling world. She has rubbed elbows with Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn for Vogue Italia's Curvy issue in 2011, and walked in Lane Bryant and Isabel Toledo's runway show.
While Huffine has a stacked portfolio thus far, it seems that we know little about her as a person. So, we did what anyone would do -- stalked her her Instagram feed. Here's what we learned about the model:
She has great style, but her shoe-selfie game is seriously on point.
She loves a good photo by the water, giving us a serious case of FOMO.
Huffine could be our personal chef-BFF any day.
If there were a superlative for Most Loyal Friend and Family Member, Huffine would win.
Last, but not least, we can go to her for words of inspiration.
Correction: Sophie Dahl was actually the first plus-size model to appear in the Pirelli Calendar back in 1999. H/t: Runway Revolution
