This year's Pirelli's calendar, shot by Peter Lindbergh features red-carpet-worthy lineup such as Helen Mirren and Nicole Kidman. Also, posing naturally for Peter LIndbergh are Uma Thurman, Julianne Moore, Robin Wright and Kate Winslet.

The calendar, a collector’s item that is produced annually and delivered free to a select group of high-powered clients and members of the fashion elite, is the second in the company’s history to subvert its decades-long tradition of displaying scantily clad models in campily suggestive poses.

For 2017, the calendar is concentrating on age, timeless beauty. Perfection is no longer the key element to fashion and style and that is a great change. The reality of things are open and teaches youngsters not to be so concentrated on the perfection of their bodies. In addition Peter Lindbergh demonstrates that there is beauty in age.

“We see all these people today who all want to be perfect and young,” he said in a phone interview from his home in Paris. “My thought was, ‘Why don’t we do a calendar with women ready to go without much makeup, to be as they are?’ For me, beauty is someone who can say yes to herself.”
