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.

What do Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman, Barbara Stanwick, and Nicole Kidman have in common? They all wore an interpretation of the same powerfully sexy style while playing fierce femme fatales. Sultry and stern, a hard-edged long bob with square fringe is just right for a commanding, butt-kicking heroine. The shoulder-dusting length walks the line between long haired femininity and short haired toughness while the bangs place emphasis on seductive eyes and add a touch of noir charm. Get this cinematic look in a few simple steps. –– Laura Martin
