Cinematic success stories of four women–Gigi Hadid, Laetitia Casta, Misty Copeland and Julie Garner.
Pirelli has introduced a calendar for 2019. Model Gigi Hadid, actress and model Laetitia Casta, dancers Sergei Polunin and Calvin Royal III, dancer Misty Copeland, actress Julia Garner, designer Alexander Wang posed for it. The author of the photos is the famous British photographer Albert Watson (it was he who shot the famous portrait of Steve Jobs).
The theme of the calendar is “Dreaming.” In the pictures, the author tells the success stories of four women–Hadid, Caste, Copeland and Garner. “I would like people to view the calendar and understand that I was inspired by pure photographic nature and wanted to know the inner world of the heroines,” said Watson. According to the photographer, he wanted the pictures for the calendar to look like still pictures from movies.
The calendar of the Italian company Pirelli, which produces automobile tires, has been published since 1964. For dozens of years famous models were shot for it in the nude. In 2016, the company changed the concept and released a calendar with “influential women of our time”, among which were model Natalia Vodianova, comedian Amy Schumer and singer Patti Smith.
