In recent years, Pirelli calendars have moved away from their ultra-glam aesthetic and this year's by Peter Lindbergh is no different. His aim was to "create a calendar not around perfect bodies, but on sensitivity and emotion, stripping down to the very soul of the sitters, who thus become more nude than naked." He also chose to not retouch the images. The 44th edition, titled Emotional, features Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong'o, Charlotte Rampling, Léa Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Robin Wright, and Zhang Ziyi. In an unexpected twist, Moscow State University professor Anastacia Ignatova also stars. Beautiful images, wonderfully photographed.
