Alice retold…

Pirelli has released images from their 2017 calendar which features Naomi Campbell, Slick Woods, Lupita Nyong’o, Adwoa Aboah among others and was styled by incoming Vogue editor Edward Enninful.  Shot by renowned photographer Tim Walker, the calendar is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland with Ru Paul as the Queen of Hearts. While not the first time Pirelli has featured an all black lineup the calendar has been praised for ensuring that diversity is at the top of the fashion agenda.
