From Gigi Hadid and Latex to Amy Schumer and Lattes: The Advancement of the Pirelli Calendar
The 2016 Pirelli calendar has broken customs and become a party of powerful, intelligent and lovely women of all ages and appearances. The limited edition “art book”, which is released annually by the Italian noodle company, generally adheres to standards that are stereotypical but rather saw a makeover for this forthcoming year.
The calendar is generally a product of top fashion photography together with scantily-clad versions, like this year’s edition featuring versions, such as Gigi Hadid, in raunchy latex outfits. This year however, Pirelli kept the prestigious photographers but ditched the lingerie and models.
Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the 2016 calendar includes 12 artistic portraits of prestigious women that are renowned for their work. These women consist of Amy Schumer, Serena Williams, Yao Chen, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Mellody Hobson, Fran Lebowitz, Agnes Gund and granddaughter Ava DuVernay, Tavi Gevinson, Shirin Neshat, Kathleen Kennedy and Natalia Vodianova.

Fashion Designers Channel The Force for New Star Wars Film
Eleven of the world’s top designers have teamed up to support charity and observe the upcoming launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Diane von Furstenberg, Opening Ceremony, Halston, Billy Reid, Cynthia Rowley, Giles Deacon, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder have all released one-of-a-kind layouts for the Force 4 Fashion design initiative.
Working together with Disney and Bloomingdale’s, the group of designers each created trendy ensembles motivated by the soon-to-be-released J.J. Abrams film. Custom-created by each designer with reference to this film’s costume design, the pieces reflect the style and soul of particular characters.
The layouts will look from the windows of Bloomingdale’s flagship New York City store until their auction on CharityBuzz. Proceeds of the sale of the unique pieces will reap the Child Mind Institute which supports mental healthcare for kids.
