GIRL ON FILM: Images from the 2015 Pirelli Calendar have just been released, and plus-size model Candice Huffine steals the show.

The next posh Pirelli calendar will feature a plus-size model for the first time in its 50-year history.

Candice Huffine scored the coveted spot, wearing a bustier to tie in with the theme, Fetish. (Taking inspiration from Catwoman and Brigitte Bardot, there's a wealth of latex corsets in there too!)

Styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Steven Meisel, Huffine stars alongside Joan Smalls, Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson and Gigi Hadid, among others. (During its illustrious history, the Pirelli calendar has featured the likes of Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Sophia Loren and Naomi Campbell, so she's sure in good company.)

"My presence on this set - the most glamorous in the world - is a sign that things are really changing," she told Vogue UK. 

The 29-year-old is no stranger to the style spotlight, having graced the cover of Italian Vogue in 2011 (alongside fellow plus-size models Robyn Lawley and Tara-Lynn) and featured in W Magazine, i-D, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue.

Can't wait to get your hands on a copy? Well, you can't. The Pirelli calendar is a rather strange high-fashion ritual in that it costs a bomb to make but can't actually be bought.

Guess we'll just have to wait 'til November to see all 12 images unveiled.
