The cast and theme of the 2019 Pirelli calendar has been announced and includes CR star Gigi Hadid shot by Scottish photographer Albert Watson in the dreamy New York Carlyle Hotel. This year’s theme is a narrative focusing on the journey of success and also features American Ballet Theater star Misty Copeland and French actress Laetitia Casta. Alexander Wang acts as Hadid’s best friend and confidant in the photos.
For the calendar, Hadid plays a wealthy and successful woman who only feels secure in her New York flat alongside Wang, who posed in an all-black streetwear ensemble. Meanwhile, Copeland stars as one of the female protagonists, her character being that of a stripper supporting her boyfriend played by ballet dancer Calvin Royal III.
French actress Laetitia Casta and American Actress Julia Garner star as the other two leading woman, playing a painter and a botanical photographer respectively. Both are joined by a male counterpart, dancer Sergei Polunim and model Astrid Zika, while dreaming of success in their fields.
