Kendall Jenner – Love Magazine (December 2016)

We’re two long weekends and 12 days into the last month of the year. Congratulations, you made it. Between Brexit, Donald Trump winning America’s Presidential elections, and the passing away of icons like David Bowie and Muhammad Ali, we don’t blame you for feeling like you wouldn’t make it this far.

But you made and lest you forget, December is a gift that just keeps on giving. Sure it’s Christmas season and everyone’s in a good mood and yes the temperatures are quite pleasant for us in the Middle East this time of year, but there’s also the LOVE advent calendar to look out for.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with LOVE Magazine’s annual Christmas calendar, it’s essentially a roll-call of the world’s most beautiful women, set to a hot soundtrack and shot by a talented director.

Since 2009, the bi-annual British mag has been injecting a heavy dose of sultry into your Christmas countdown by featuring the industry’s hottest supermodels from Kendall Jenner to Emily Ratajkowski.

This year’s edition is unquestionably their hottest yet and – as you may have guessed – is already 12 days down. It all started with Victoria’s Secret catwalk star Bella Hadid’s raunchy ode to Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical”.

In fact, pop culture is a recurring theme in this year’s calendar with Rita Ora’s nod to The Andrews’ SistersBoogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, Stella Maxwell recreating Margot Robbie’s Wolf of Wall Street ‘no panties’ scene and Barbara Palvin channelling her inner Sharon Stone to recreate one of the most paused moments in Hollywood history.

Barbara Palvin – Day 12
Barbara Palvin rings in day 12 of the LOVE Magazine advent calendar with a few swings around a pole. The model shows off her dance skills on top of her flexibility and strength in this sexy shoot while dressed in Burberry lingerie set. “The concepts are always very creative [Ö],” Palvin told LOVE on set. “You never know what they will surprise you with!”

Emily Ratajkowski – Day 3
Emily Ratajkowski was all for skipping the gym and indulging in some carbs during Day 3’s Carb Loading Day. “[LOVE editor] Katie [Grand] directed us to say ‘Stay Strong’ at the end of each video and I think it’s a message from one woman to another.,” Ratajkowski stated for her day 3 shoot. “You’re watching a video of a girl grinding in lingerie or whatever else and she is looking into the camera at the end saying, ‘you do you, however YOU want to, f–k the rest’.”

Gigi Hadid – Day 11
Gigi Hadid spiked volleyballs, threw punches, and did some high kicks for her freestyle workout-inspired day 11 shoot. “I love seeing everyone else’s videos,” she told LOVE. “It’s celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries. The fashion circle is a family, so the Love Advent kind of feels like a Holiday Year Book in a way. Headmaster Grand style.” In a show of body acceptance, Hadid wasn’t afraid to show off her underarm hair throughout the video.
