Pirelli launches covered-up 2017 calendar with top actresses

Pirelli launches covered-up 2017 calendar with top actresses

Entitled 'Emotional, ' the photos were shot between May and June 2016 in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London and Le Touquet, France, and the calendar was officially unveiled at a festive event on Tuesday, November 29, at the Cité du Cinema, in Saint-Denis, near Paris.

2017's calendar was shot by German photographer Peter Lindbergh, who has been credited with the creation of the supermodel. "The ideal of flawless beauty promoted by society is something that simply can't be attained".

"It still boils down to the old-fashioned idea of the mechanics garage with pictures of women in it", she said. The women he photographed are goddesses of cinema.

Also included in the Pirelli Calendar are older actresses Helen Mirren, Charlotte Rampling, Penelope Cruz and Kate Winslet, plus a slew of 20- and 30-somethings: Lupita Nyong'o, Jessica Chastain, Alicia Vikander, Rooney Mara, Lea Seydoux, and Zhang Ziyi.

For this year's edition of the iconic calendar, photographer Peter Lindbergh said he wanted: "to create a calendar not around ideal bodies, but on sensitivity and emotion".

This year's calendar, presented today in Paris, is perhaps the farthest away from the original format as you could possibly get, with not a naked bottom or heaving bosom in sight.

"The reality is that we live, love, continue and contribute, and that's the role of women", said Mirren, sending a message to young women: "The reality is that life goes on for a long time, and you will be many things in that time". Traditionally a trade calendar, commissioned by Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli and available only to a select number of high-profile customers, previous editions were made largely to serve the male gaze.

"I think Peter's mission with everyone involved wanting to free women from oppressive and false standards is fantastic", Uma added. Photographer Annie Leibovitz said the company was working "to make a departure from the past" after shooting the 2016 edition.

Speaking about the calendar, photographer Lindhberg said it was "important to remind everyone that there is a different kind of beauty".

For the 2016 Pirelli calendar, Amy Schumer posed almost nude and tweeted about the image, calling it "beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting [and] flawless".

Moore recalled being photographed in a state close to the moment she walked in "with no makeup, with wet hair". Shown here: actress Julianne Moore in 2008.
