The 77th Pirelli Calendar always makes everyone talk, I started to notice it a couple of years ago. Is interesting to see how much it has evolve over the years.
This year they had a really beautiful concept: No photoshop retouch.
In the times of the fictional, false news and more Star Wars movies than ever, they chose to do it raw and black and white. And as if were not good enough, the models/actresses in it, (some of them) are not 20s nor 30s, they are grown up and amazing women.
This about showing sensibility, “emotions” which is the name of the calendar. Most important is that it is far away of the beauty canons stablished today.
This year the legendary creation is further testament to Lindbergh’s love of the big screen. Here are some of them, who also participated: Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet and Zhang Ziyi. The line-up also features Anastasia Ignatova, a Political Theory professor at Moscow State University, as special guest.
“Conveys personality, sensitivity and the guts to be yourself”, Peter Lindbergh, the German photograph explain, while presenting his 3rd edition.
