Pirelli has a long history of features including over-sexy naked bodies, but a recent turn of events has cast a very different light on the most famous calendar out there. After last year Annie Leibowitz’ shots featuring brainy, inspiring women, the 2017 Pirelli Calendar is embracing yet another kind of female beauty: the wrinkled one.
In Peter Lindburgh’s photos, aging celebrities show how lines are nothing but an interesting addition to one’s charm. The photographer has said during a recent press release:
As an artist, I feel I’m responsible for freeing women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. The ideal of perfect beauty promoted by society is something that simply can’t be attained.
And we could not agree more. Check out the gallery for a preview of these stunning shots.
