Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren and more break boundaries in the 2017 Pirelli calendar

This year's Pirelli calendar has been titled 'Emotional', "to create a calendar not around perfect bodies, but on sensitivity and emotion, stripping down to the very soul of the sitters, who thus become more nude than naked."

Robin Wright, Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Rooney Mara, Helen Mirren, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlotte Rampling, Lea Seydoux, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Zhang Ziyi and Anastasia Ignatova, professor of Political Theory at the Moscow State University of International Relations, are the chosen subjects of the calendar, which this year was shot by Peter Lindberg, and is being praised for its portrayal of "real" women.
