As previously reported, Pirelli Calender is continuing to maintain last year’s tradition of photographing women to showcase a liberated and natural side of them. For this year’s edition, 14 actresses are modeling for German photographer and director Peter Lindbergh for a series of black and white photo of the actresses without any makeup or air brushing. From Kate Winset and Nicole Kidman to Helen Mirren and Penelope Cruz, all the actresses are excited about leaving behind the tonnes of makeup that goes into creating the myth of a perfect woman. To celebrate the calendar’s unveiling, a press conference and premiere was held yesterday in Paris. With many thanks to Claudia, hundreds of pictures have been added to the photo gallery. The Lindbergh photography of Helen Mirren can be found here.
