Kellyanne Conway, Ann Coulter among women featured in conservative women calendar spread


Remember that glamour shot of Kellyanne Conway someone spotted in the background of an interview at her home?

It turns out that the stunning shot is one of many featured in a calendar dedicated to attractive, politically-conservative women.

Between 2009 and 2012, Conway joined the likes of Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann in posing for a calendar commissioned by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

CBLPI publishes the calendars to raise money for the nonprofit, which was founded in 1993 after Michelle Easton served in the Reagan and first Bush White Houses.

"We are an organization that prepares and supports women leaders," Easton told Broadly. "We make them stronger, better conservatives. We use successful conservative women as role models."

The organization is named for late Connecticut congresswoman Clare Boothe Luce, who mixed femininity with right-wing politics and wrote for various magazines.

According to Broadly, CBLPI employees decided to create calendars in 2004 after watching the movie "Calendar Girls" -- a story of Women's Institute members who raise money by posing nude in a calendar.

"[A donor] had the idea (we let him think it was his) that we should do a calendar," former CBLPI program director Lisa De Pasquale told Broadly. "[For the first few calendars], I did it on the cheap with the photos they provided or we took from events."

Conway's legendary mink photo came from the 2009 calendar, which had a "Pretty in Mink" theme. Coulter also posed for it.

You can check out the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 calendars and more in full on the CBLPI website.
