The sexiest bikini calendars from across the world!
Sizzling women in swimwear will always have a fan following -- here's a look at some of the best international bikini calendars.
Some have acquired iconic status and some are fast getting there.
Photographing beautiful people will never go out of style -- which is why these calendars are only growing in popularity with each passing year and edition!
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar
They have the most widely circulated annual swimsuit edition in the world, so it's not surprising that this yearly offering is as eagerly awaited.
It's no small feat to land this calendar -- it's only top-notch models who make the cut, so you can be sure to see some of the most beautiful faces (and bods) in here.

The Pirelli Calendar
Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Giselle Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio -- everyone who's anyone in the fashion industry has featured in this bold calendar, which has been around since 1964.
It's no cheap pin-up item either -- to date, it is available only in limited numbers as a gift to top customers and celebrity VIPs.
