Lavazza goes the soft porn route to sell coffee
Italian coffee manufacturer Lavazza commissioned super photog Annie Leibovitz to take weird pictures of scantily clad and/or nipped out grouchy looking people amid various Italian ruins, architecture and landscape for a 2009 calendar. We don't get it. There's something very Anne Geddes about at least a couple of them, namely the January-February photo which includes actual babies, but also the September-October shot that features a woman draped atop a bed of noodles. Um, ew. The coffee plays an awkward role at best. By the way, are high-legged swimsuits back in? Please God no.
