The 43rd edition of the Pirelli calendar was presented at the Roundhouse in London. The creator of this current edition is the American photographer Annie Leibovitz. The pictures were taken in June in her New York atelier.
Like the first calendars in the sixties and later issues by Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier and Steve McCurry, this newest calendar does not include any nude photography. The pictures show 13 women who have stood out over recent years professionally, in sports, in culture and in social commitment. They include the Chinese actress and UNHCR Ambassador Yao Chen, film producer Kathleen Kennedy, tennis player Serena Williams, artist Yoko Ono, and stand-up comedienne Amy Schumer.
The presentation of the Pirelli calendar was accompanied by the introduction of the new Pirelli website, where the history of the famous calendar is also documented.
