The Nu Muses 2017 nude calendar with Janine Tugonon is on sale now, and it costs over $20,000!

In October, it was reported that Filipina beauty queen and Miss Universe 2012 1st runner-up Janine Tugonon was selected to be one of 12 models to appear in the high-fashion Nu Muses 2017 nude calendar. Supposedly inspired the artistic nude calendars created by Pirelli in the 1970s, the Nu Muses calendar "is set to celebrate the forgotten art of the classic nude and capture the elegance and romance of the female form."

Well, the calendar is now available for pre-order in three variants.

The Deluxe Luxury Edition is indeed that since it contains 24 "archival fine art photographs" in a leather and linen handcrafted box that's mounted on a Lucite stand box "that echoes the undulating curves of the female body." Only 20 units will supposedly be made costing $20,000 each, with each volume being signed and numbered by the photographer, David Bellemere, to go with the certificate of authenticity. Also included with the package is an invitation to the Nu Muses calendar's launch event during the Art Basel art fair in Miami, Florida on December 2.

If that's too pricey for you, the limited-to-100 Premium Edition Box Set/Calendar has the same 24 photographs in a handcrafted, specially designed, hardback linen folio with each volume signed and numbered by Bellemere along with the certificate of authenticity. At $10,000, the package also includes behind-the-scenes video footage from the calendar shoot in the Dominican Republic.

Finally, for those hard up on cash, there's the Collector's Edition Box Set/Calendar that has 12 photographs in a handmade, specially designed, hardback linen folio and comes with a certificate of authenticity for $1,000 and limited to 1,000 examples.

Besides Janine, the other models in the calendar are Alejandra Guilmant (Mexico), Anna Wolf (United States), Ariela Oliveira (Brazil), Ebonee Davis (United States), Isabella Boemeke (Brazil), , Jessica Clements (United States), Keilani Asmus (Holland/Indonesia), Nidhi Sunil (India), Rachel Cook (United States), Sabina Karlsson (Sweden), and Vika Levina (Russia). It's sad though that two of our personal favorites that joined the casting call, Xian Mikol and Natalia LaLonde, failed to make the final cut.

Anyway, enjoy the photos of one of the Philippine's finest women below.
