We’ve still got some time to go before the new year, but Pirelli has already introduced the stars of its 2019 calendar—and we’re obsessed with the concept.
The tire brand had big shoes to fill after last year’s incredible calendar, which featured an all-black cast (including celebs like Lupita Nyong’o and Naomi Campbell). To do so they recruited the likes of Gigi Hadid and Alexander Wang to take part in the shoot.
The 2019 cal—which was photographed by Albert Watson, who’s shot over 100 Vogue covers—tells the story of four women and their partners, following them as they try to achieve their highest ambitions. Hadid stars as a wealthy, successful woman, who is sad despite all of her accomplishments. Wang takes on the role of her mentor.
The cast also features American ballet superstar Misty Copeland and fellow dancer Calvin Royal III, actress Julia Garner (who you may recognize from The Americans and Ozark) and French actress and model Laetitia Casta.
The new Pirelli calendar, which is the company’s 46th edition, is set to be released in December.
