Paris has become the perfect scenario chosen by Pirelli for the presentation of the 2017 edition of its mythical calendar. And even the French capital has moved Trendencias to attend the exclusive premiere of a calendar that is characterized, in this edition, for reflecting real beauty, without touch-ups, without artifice. Black and white by the hand of photographer Peter Lindbergh, fourteen leading international actresses and a university professor. Those are the ingredients of a recipe that has guaranteed success.
Nicole Kidman, Alicia Vikander, Léa Seydoux, Robin Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Winslet, Rooney Mara, Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Zhang Ziyi, Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Helen Mirren and Charlotte Rampling They are the fourteen actresses who star in the photographs, which have been taken in Berlin, London, New York and Los Angeles. Complete the impressive roster Anastasia Ignatova, a university professor of Political Theory at the University of Moscow, who appears at the photographer's express wish (he has told us in an interview that you can read in the next few days).
Very different women, portrayed with a washed face, naturally, in black and white images that want to convey more than beauty. Lindbergh's intention has been "Make a calendar not about perfect bodies, but about sensitivity and emotion, undressing people's souls, leaving them more naked than naked". The trend of the latest editions continues, in which it evolved into a less lush and more everyday beauty.
It is the third time that Peter Lindbergh takes over the production of the Pirelli Calendar, after the 1996 and 2002 editions, in addition to being chosen to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the mythical The Cal. This year's consists of 40 photographs in total, between portraits and environments.
Tonight will be presented to the world in the great gala party to be held at the Cité du Cinéma parisina, an event that is expected full of surprises and to which Trendencias will come to bring you all the information about one of the most anticipated events of the year.
