Awesome: The Majority of the 2017 Pirelli Calendar Stars Are Over Age 40
Everyone in fashion eagerly awaits the annual Pirelli calendar—and for good reason. The images are always shot by the best of the best, including Annie Leibovitz, who shot the calendar last year, and Peter Lindbergh, who took over as photographer for the 2017 edition. The 2016 lineup featured a wide range of famous faces like Amy Schumer, Serena Williams, Tavi Gevinson, and more. This year, the women are equally amazing, with an A-list group that spans some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Taking a quick glance at the full list, one thing stood out to us: More than half of the women are over 40. Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright, Kate Winslet, and Charlotte Rampling were all selected to be in the iconic series, making a major statement against Hollywood’s age bias. They were joined by their younger and equally stunning counterparts, such as 27-year-old Alicia Vikander and 31-year-old Rooney Mara. Stay tuned: The full calendar comes out in November.
