Move over Far Side, Ansel Adams, and Nascar! Richie Arpino is back with an even more steamy, sultry and seductive calendar to rock our socks off for 2012. Yumm. If you aren’t familiar, become acquainted this year. Each new calendar year brings forth a new installment by celebrity stylist and photographer Richie Arpino. Fenuxe is proud to say we’ve gotten our hands on one of this year’s first copies and my, my, my, this year is the best.
All proceeds from calendar sales go directly to local AIDS and cancer foundations. Aprino says he really believes in providing something beautiful for the community while also giving back in a unique and creative way.
This year’s calendar marks Arpino’s sixth edition. The theme for this year is North versus South. The explanation? He shot six hunks from New York and six studs from Atlanta. There is definitely a little something in there for everyone! This edition also has a very special significance for Arpino. A message on the final page reads, “This calendar is dedicated to my mom, who lost her battle with cancer last year.”
The calendar features not only our very own May 5th cover model Christian Velella of Caliber Models, but also Bravo’s A-list star Rodiney Santiago and Project Runway’s Jack Mackenroth. Great job boys!

Calendars are also available for purchase at Brushstrokes, Outwrite Bookstore, Metrofresh, and Richie Arpino Salon in Buckhead.
