The the early 1960s, the annual publication of the Pirelli Calendar, a trade publication for the tire manufacturer, has been known for is sultry portraits of celebrities, models, and actresses.  Shot by A-list photographers ranging from Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, and Karl Lagerfeld, to Annie Leibovitz, Inez & Vinoohd, and Peter Lindbergh it has rarely detoured from its signature subjects, only embracing a new breed of subjects (the over-40, the accomplished, and the zaftig) during the past few years.  The 2018 45th edition may be the publication’s most exciting to date; under the direction of photographer, Tim Walker, it will feature an all-black cast portraying characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, styled by Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue, Edward Enninful.

Stars include, model Duckie Toth (Alice), personality RuPaul (The Queen of Hearts), actor Djimon Hounsou (The King of Hearts), model Thando Hopa (The Princess of Hearts), record producer Sean “Diddy” Combs (The Royal Beheader), model/actress Naomi Campbell (The Royal Beheader), activist Jaha Dukurek (Wonderland Princess), model Adut Akech (The Queen of Diamonds), model Slick Woods (The Mad Hatter), actress Sasha Lane (The Mad March Hare), actress Lupita Nyong’o (The Dormouse), television host Whoopi Goldberg (The Royal Duchess), and singer Zoe Bedeaux (The Caterpillar).  “Alice has been told so many times,” Tim Walker said, “and I think I wanted to go back to the genesis of the imagination behind Lewis Carroll so that you could tell it from the very beginning again. I wanted to find a different and original angle.”

Shooting the latest campaign for Christian Dior’s fragrance, J’Adore, Charlize Theron is simply ethereal!  The actress, 41, runs through the rain and frolics into the sun-light sea while wearing an exquisite gold evening gown.  The campaign was shot by filmmaker, Jean-Baptiste Mondino. “With every film, the House of Dior wanted to make this woman evolve, and understand her role in the world, defining a rapport with luxury,” the director shares.  This film follows the previous campaign, in which Charlize is seen climbing towards “elsewhere” — never reaching her true destination.  For behind-the-scenes access to previous J’Adore film shoots, check out the “Unexpected” interview with Peter Lindbergh.
