2017 Pirelli Calendar: See Unretouched Photos of Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and More Actresses

The 2017 Pirelli calendar debuted in Paris Tuesday morning, featuring 14 of the most prolific actresses from around the world. The latest list of talent includes Jessica Chastain (Miss Sloane), Penélope Cruz (Zoolander 2), Nicole Kidman (Lion), Rooney Mara (Lion), Helen Mirren (Collateral Beauty), Julianne Moore (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Lupita Nyong’o(Queen of Katwe), Charlotte Rampling (The Sense of an Ending), Léa Seydoux (It’s Only the End of the World), Uma Thurman (The Brits Are Coming), Alicia Vikander (The Light Between Oceans), Kate Winslet (Collateral Beauty), Robin Wright (Wonder Woman) and Zhang Ziyi

Taking a cue from 2016’s photographer Annie Liebovitz, whose calendar celebrated “strong but natural women,” Peter Lindbergh wanted zero airbrushing or retouching. “I wanted to use the 2017 Calendar to convey a different kind of beauty,” Lindbergh says. “Since it’s based on consumption, the present system offers a single kind of beauty, which is essentially one of youth and perfection, since its objective is to get people to consume. But this idea of beauty has nothing to do with the real world or with women. Through the Pirelli Calendar I’ve tried to convey a different message, which is that beauty is far more than what advertising offers us today. My aim was therefore to portray women in a different way: and I did this by calling in actresses who’ve played an important role in my life, getting as close as possible to them to take my photos.”
