Pirelli has unveiled its star-studded 2017 calendar shot by renowned photographer Peter Lundbergh. Back at the helm of the project for a record third time, Lindbergh recruited Hollywood superstars for next year's edition including Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong'o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Robin Wright and Zhang Ziyi.

Titled Emotional, the German master lensman opted to go beyond the physical beauty and focus instead on each individual's sensitivity. "My aim was to portray women in a different way", shares Lindbergh, "and I did it by calling in actresses who've played an important role in my life, getting as close as possible to them to take my photos. As an artist, I feel I'm responsible for freeing women from the idea of eternal youth and perfection. The ideal of perfect beauty promoted by society is something that simply can't be attained."
