Not just a calendar, "Maybelline Loves New York" is your V.I.P. pass - your limited edition access to true New York glamour, your front row seat to beauty that is uniquely Maybelline.

From the electric blue pulse of 42nd street to the cool seduction of a luxurious black limousine to the soft, delicate pink of Central Park's springtime cherry blossoms, renowned photographer Kenneth Willardt and the world's most popular cosmetic brand (along with the masterful post production work of Patricia Pericas at Clinic Imaging) offer you an exclusive opportunity to experience the iconic allure of New York City in living color and to celebrate the diverse, natural beauty of the Maybelline woman.

Adriana Lima, Kemp Muhl, Julia Stegner, Anna Wang and Jessica White embody the Maybelline world of beauty, a world where youthful, fashion-forward women from Brazil to Berlin choose to enhance the beauty they're born with, not cover it up. And what better backdrop for Willardt's twelve vibrant portraits of these stunning, confident, modern women than New York City; a city known for its celebration of diversity, style and accessible innovation?

Having photographed many of the world's most famed beauty and fashion icons, from Beyonce Knowles to Keira Knightley, Sarah Jessica Parker and Eva Longoria, and having created stunning editorials for such leading glamour magazines as Allure, German Vogue and US Glamour as well as monthly covers for Cosmopolitan and US In Style, Danish-born photographer Kenneth Willardt is no stranger to the art of capturing beauty on a page. And he is certainly no stranger to Maybelline.

As key photographer for the cosmetic giant's campaigns over the last two years, Kenneth has photographed the stunning natural beauties synonymous with the Maybelline brand, and in so doing has helped to reshape and broaden the illustrious appeal of the Maybelline line of products. This relationship is on-going and ever expanding, with Willardt having recently been commissioned to direct a variety of television commercials for the brand, as well as to photograph next year's Maybelline calendar.
