India's hottest (not to mention the most-awaited) calendar of the year is launched. And here's who showed up for the fashionable do!

For more than a decade now, Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar has managed to make a place for itself in Mumbai's annual party circuit. The pre-launch and launch parties see some of the most glamorous folks from the city come together and pop the bubbly.

This year was no different as liquor baron Vijay Mallya hosted the pre-launch party at his posh home in Mandva, on the outskirts of Mumbai.

Here's who showed up!

We start out with the stunning Lisa Haydon, a former Kingfisher Calendar girl, who was quite clearly the star of the day.
