UPDATED: This Pipita Picture Is Giving Me Life Today

9 Nov

IMG_7493Last night, watishista Rose gifted me with this shot of Pipa reportedly from an upcoming Napoli calendar which is, obviously, a must have now. I’ve been laughing hysterically ever since.

Upon viewing this, Shigs said “Is she thinking about plucking his eyebrows with those chopsticks? Because if so, she’s gonna be there all night.” I don’t think that’s the kind of “all night long” Mr. Hola Bonita was hoping for. Also those trousers? Not flattering. And don’t get me started on the floral shirt. But in the context of this picture, it’s all perfect. Brilliant, even. I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING. 

While looking for more evidence of this Napoli calendar, I came upon the work of talented art student Fabio Di Corleto. He did some vector portraits of Napoli players that are terrific. Check out his whole portfolio here.

It was great meeting up with Rose and realmadridlookbook at the Lilian Thuram lecture last night. They joined our merry crew which included me, Shigs, Mandi & forzasusan. Unfortunately, we missed connecting with Manie & @callejonshair. Next time! I think I may need to organize some sort of NYC get together in the new year. It would be really fun to meet more of you.

I’m looking at that Pipita picture again and it truly is the gift that keeps giving. I may be more in love with it than I was the first time I saw it. It’s…magic.

UPDATED: Watishista Maria Rosaria kindly posted the video teaser for the calendar. I need to get my hands on this thing!

    You see? We’re treating him like our little emperor! I have another picture to show you. I just have to find a way how to…
    This is the official SSC Napoli 2014 calendar and, as you can guess, it’s going to be the best of the series (because Calleti, Raul and Gonzalo are hard core drooling material and you know about that). We cannot wait for it to be at the newsagent’s and I’m afraid we’ll have to book it in advance in order to make sure to set our hands on it.
    As in the previous years, there will be also a backstage video (and I can’t even think about it, I’m going to faint, oh my).

    A couple years back I got a calender of the Uruguayan team… very lovely.

    Well, I can find nothing to fault with the picture. Pure fantasy! He would
    have made a great sultan. Now, can we see Calleti and Raul?

      Several on my list will want this. Orrrrr, the French calendar with naked olivier giroud. Indeed we live in a golden age of baller objectification.

      though i can see any of them doing it, the pipita unbuttoned shirt/being fed sushi pose feels very sergio.
