The 43rd edition is here which was debuted in London trading the tradition of Cal’s NSFW overt sexuality with 2015’s dressed in BDSM-worthy latex lingerie such as Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls and other collaborations of Carine Roitfeld and Steven Meisel.
For more, Annie Leibovitz, who was behind the 2016 calendar lens, and was given a choice to cast the famous faces for 12 months, said in the press conference today,
“Pirelli came to me and told me they wanted to shift this year to something different. I made the suggestion that they do women performance artists or women comedians, almost a take-off. I just thought of women I admired and I didn’t let anyone in the studio from Pirelli. It became a very strong set of very simple portraits.
