2018 Pirelli Calendar Features All-Black Cast
The 2018 Pirelli Calendar has been released, featuring an all-black cast of models, artists and actors.

Acclaimed photographer Tim Walker alongside incoming British Vogue editor, Edward Enninful, joined forces to recreate and capture “the surreal world of dreams” created in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

Naomi Campbell takes centre stage in the Royal Beheader role with Sean “Diddy” Combs as her trusty sidekick. Other famous faces include Lupita Nyong’o, RuPaul, Sasha Lane and Whoopi Goldberg.

“Now we have Alice looking different, Alice can be anyone,” Tim told the New York Times. “It’s an essence… you don’t have to be confined. Focus on what it represents. It’s important for cultural development”.

The Pirelli calendar was developed decades ago, as an ode to female beauty. More recently however, it has redefined itself by creating images that provide social commentary.
