In a refreshing change of pace, the Pirelli Calendar 2017 has opted not to use scantily-clad supermodels in its latest calendar.
Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong'o are among the gorgeous women gracing the pages of the 2017 Pirelli Calendar.
The famous publication is better known for its use of nude models, but in 2017 they're redefining 'sexy' for all women.
Instead of getting veteran Pirelli models Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss to frolick topless on a beach again, photographer Peter Lindbergh is hitting the streets of New York with his stunning cast of talented women.
Thank you to all the production team for a wonderful and unique experience! Finally our first release! Thanks to @therealpeterlindbergh @sandrinebizzaro @2bmanagement @camillajohnsonhill @amanda_hansford @pg_dmcasting and all the people who have really worked very hard to allow this???? #pirellicalendar #pirelli
The uncharacteristic move from the tyre brand is a refreshing reminder that women of all ages are undeniably sexy.
"That was the first statement I wanted to do, to say ‘These women are 45, 50, and what’s wrong about it?’" Peter told Vogue. He also added that he didn't want any "extreme retouching."
“Everyone in this calendar, at one point in my life, I wanted to marry, and I didn’t have the balls to ask them!,” he also added in the interview.
