Tim Walker’s Pirelli

367971

Although these are only the backstage images from the actual shoot, this steamy hot preview can’t be ignored. You might have already heard that Tim Walker was chosen by Pirelli to collaborate on 2018’s calendar. One thing was sure since the appointment became public – those wouldn’t be bombsell nudes, but twelve, extremely far-fetched visuals.

The casting is all-black and inovolves people from all walks of life. Designed by Shona Heath and styled by Edward Enninful, 2018’s calendar is all about the tale of Alice in (Walker’s) Wonderland. So, who plays whom? RuPaul is The Queen of Hearts, Lupita Nyong’o has the role of The Doormouse, Lil Yachty acting as The Queen’s Guard, Whoopi Goldberg portraying The Royal Duchess, and model Duckie Thot playing the titular Alice. There’s Thando Hopa (South African sexual offence lawyer turned model, who has albinism). There’s Puff Daddy (!). There’s Slick Woods and Adwoa Aboah. And there’s Naomi Campbell. “I’m the beheader: I chop people’s heads off. And I like it,” the supermodel declares. She continues, saying “this calendar is gonna be a historic calendar. It’s gonna go down in the history of Pirelli. It couldn’t be more balanced and diverse which is something we all strive for each day. And Tim, we love you, you’re a hero and this is gonna be the best calendar ever.” I love him to the moon and back too, Omi. Can’t wait to see the entire shoot!
