A unique nude calendar challenges perceptions of beauty with its twelve stunning models - who all have no hair.

The 2015 charity calendar from PrettyBald is themed around a girls' country weekend. Each photo features a country house, fast car, croquet, tea party - or even wellies - and of course beautiful bald models baring all.

The light-hearted pictures also feature wigs in places one wouldn't normally find them.

The fundraising calendar wants to show that bald is beautiful to anyone who has no hair, whether they have cancer, thinning hair, scarring or alopecia.

All of the models have alopecia and the calendar will raise funds for Alopecia UK.

Organiser Victoria says: 'Having had Alopecia for nearly three years, I'm pretty comfortable in my own skin and am really open about Alopecia, mostly because I have a fantastic support network.

'Many people I have met really struggle with the condition and it becomes a barrier to doing what they want and being who they want to be.

'Education is really important, and in a moment of madness one evening I thought: "Why not get our kit off and raise awareness of the condition!"

'There are many nude calendars out there, but I don't think any can claim to be as challenging as this one was - for many of the girls, this was the first in public without their hair and they're prepared to share that with the world! Amazing!

'I am so proud of what has been achieved and hope it can play a small part in raising awareness of alopecia, and funds for Alopecia UK.

'Thanks to all our sponsors, particularly head sponsor Follea, who have made this project possible!'

The calendar costs £10 and is available through PrettyBald's website.
