Pirelli unveils its Albert Watson photographed calendar

Since it’s practically time to bin those 2018 calendars, it can only mean one thing: Yes, Pirelli has released their iconic calendar. Published first back in 1964 the honor of photographing the storied thing has been reserved for the greats and its pages filled with even more legendary women. Owning one of these babies is a status-symbol considering only 20,000 copies are printed each year. Over the past years, it’s evolved from featuring stripped down pin-up to a visual affirmation of more woke times. For the 46th chapter in its history, Albert Watson was enlisted to immortalize Gigi Hadid, Julia Garner, Misty Copland, Calvin Royal III, Laetitia Casta and Sergei Polunin. Each role-play a character like “the painter” or “the wealthy socialite” in the narrative vignettes and Watson shot the pictures in a 16:9 format for a cinematic touch. “What I wanted to convey were the characters’ hopes and their way of thinking about the future, in a way that would bring with it the aspect of dreaming,” said Watson of the project. Over the course of his nearly five-decade-long career, the Scotland-born photographer has shot more than 100 covers of Vogues internationally. See some of the 40 images from the 2019 calendar below:

CR Girls Bring in a New Year with A Good Cause

The second edition of Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Women calendar lays out 2019 nicely with pretty in pink imagery that gives back. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, the editrix makes a tribute to the strength of women, this time pairing up with beauty conglomerate Estee Lauder to benefit Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the largest private founder of breast cancer research worldwide. “Breast cancer is a universal issue that touches everyone – if not personally, then one’s relative or friend,” said Roitfeld. “I am honored to shine a light on the invaluable research the BCRF has accomplished and to support their dedication to help end the fight which has affected so many incredible individuals.” Actress Elizabeth Hurley joins an all-star model cast featuring muses Joan Smalls, Carolyn Murphy, Karlie Kloss, Hilary Rhoda, Fei Fei Sun, Lakshmi Menon, Grace Elizabeth, Anok Yai, Halima Aden, Birgit Kos, and Danielle Herrington all in floral, rose hued looks. CR Women 2019 will be available for $150 with 100% of the selling price going towards BCRF on CR Fashion Book and Estee Lauder starting December 4th through January 31, 2019.

Lila Moss, Licett take Dazed Magazine’s front spots for Winter 2018

Lila Moss was only a matter of time, the 16-year-old successor of fashion’s most famous surname makes her (solo) cover debut smack dab on the front of Dazed Magazine‘s Winter 2018 issue. Lila, backed by her mom’s 2016-founded agency, KMA (London), is photographed by Tim Walker and styled by Katy England. It asks, “Who’s that girl?” like we all don’t know. Marc Jacobs recently made the buzzy baby-Moss the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. Not just one though, there’s two––the other cover opts for black and white and Dominican breakout Licett Morillo, which is also her debut magazine fronting. It’s shot by Ben Toms and styled by Robbie Spencer. In a press release, Dazed describes the whole thing like, “An issue that is all about firsts – new beginnings, powerful retellings and true originals whose work speaks to the possibility of pure creation.” Preview them and the inside editorials below. Since this isn’t a book it’s OK to judge by its cover, go ahead!

Chaos SixtyNine is up to no good in the best way possible, again

It’s an issue 2 debut of all pros and no cons, of Chaos SixtyNine that is. The ambitious, attitude-steeped, Charlotte Stockdale-led poster book came onto our feeds and hurried into our hearts and minds, particularly the one by Cass Bird where Gigi Hadid shows off her fireman’s carry with Mica Argañaraz. Plus the one with Paloma Elsesser‘s derrière. What has been seen so far (like Cass’ other all-star heavy covers featuring Kendall Jenner, Slick Woods, Cara Taylor, and Adwoa Aboah; also Elfie Reigate & her dad, Barry, by Laurence Ellis) barely scratches the surface, it says there are “over 100 posters to pull out”. See what’s what so far below:
