Pirelli Calendar Album 2017 Courtesy

The Pirelli Calendar Album was once the preserve of the pinup. Teenage boys and car mechanics sweated over its release, desperate to see beauties writhing in the sand. But times, they are a changin’. This iconic marker of the gregorian calendar has moved on. Artsy black and white images of women with talents beyond their otherworldly eye-appeal is the new style de jour. Ergo, we see the likes of Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, and Nicole Kidman in chic but thought-provoking poses, and minus the retouching that is obligatory in today’s glossy’s. It’s nice to see these women in more intimate photographs; it allows a window to their imperfections, and to the marks that life has left. The hair is undone and beautiful. See more below.
