Pirelli’s Passion

November 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Pirelli Calendaris a time honored tradition and every year they turn up the heat another notch with the calendar’s blend of haute fashion and sensuality. This year’s cal is a collaboration amongst industry legends with Steven Meisel shooting, Carine Roitfeld styling and Pat McGrath and Guido Palau providing make up and hair. With a team that illustrious you expect only the very best and the final images deliver that level of quality. If the end result seems even more fashion forward than usual, it’s no accident, “I didn’t want to make a conceptual calendar,” says Meisel “or link it to some particular location, but rather to create 12 posters in which women, in all their sensuality, are the absolute protagonists of 12 very different images. Since I wanted to limit the use of clothes and accessories and since I had absolute creative freedom, I found it very exciting to play with the colors, the makeup, and the materials. It was a very rewarding experience.”

Take a first look inside the calendar’s gorgeous shots of Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Sasha Luss and Anna Ewers below.

Dressing up Spielberg’ classic film, CR’s “E.T.” revisits the 1982 blockbuster with Lindsey Wixson in the role of Gertie (with much better clothes, of course). Photographer  Sebastian Faena brings his trademark for cinematic imagery to iconic scenes pulled from the original film, including the bicycle flying over the moon and E.T.’s glowing fingertips. Magda Laguinge and male model Abel Van Oeveren join Lindsey in showcasing Spring fashions from Prada, Miu Miu, and Proenza Schouler. /

For Bruce Webers take on “Fairy Tales,” CR tapped newcomer and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offspring Gigi Hadid to star in a hippie-style story. Combining wilderness whimsy with pieces from Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, and Hermès, Weber’s story spotlights Carine Roitfeld’s penchant for striking the perfect balance of hi-lo fashion. Playful, sensual, and super cool, this cover story looks like a perfect spring daydream.
