 The 44th edition of the Pirelli Calender 2017 was shot by one of the most influential contemporary photographers: Peter Lindbergh.

The calendar, which  conveys natural beauty and personality without retouching, stars Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Zhang Ziyi, Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Léa Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander and Robin Wright. The photography represents a growing backlash against the unreal perfectionism idolised as today’s beauty standards. 

“The idea of beauty today is a bloody mess. It’s really awful,” Lindbergh continued, revealing that his inspiration behind this shoot was to capture his subjects looking natural. “I hold my breath when I see the images and not because I took the pictures, but because it really happened. The idea of the calendar is to show what real beauty comes from and not what people impose on you to believe is beautiful.” (Lindbergh in British Vogue).
