“Dreaming”, the 2019 Pirelli Calendar shot by Albert Watson

For this year’s Pirelli Calendar, the celebrated photographer Albert Watson has created a series of vignettes centring on the dreams and aspirations of four successful and talented women.
Each ‘little movie’, starring well-known models from film, fashion and dance, shows the characters at significant crossroads in their lives.

The result is 40 beautiful and cinematic images taken on location in Miami and New York all on the theme of ‘Dreaming’.
The photographs, for the 46th edition of the iconic Calendar, were shot in colour and black and white using the cinematic 16:9 format, inspired by Albert Watson’s passion for the art of film.

Watson said the basic idea behind the whole project was that of telling a story in four ‘little movies’.
“What I wanted to convey were the characters’ hopes and their way of thinking about the future, in a way that would bring with it the aspect of dreaming,” he said.

The 2019 Pirelli Calendar is released on December 5 featuring actress Julia Garner as “the botanical photographer”, Astrid Eika as the “model”, actress and model Laetitia Casta as “the painter”, professional dancer Sergei Polunin as the “painter’s partner”, ballet star Misty Copeland as “the dancer”, professional dancer Calvin Royal III as the “dancer’s partner”, model Gigi Hadid as “the wealthy socialite” and Alexander Wang as the “confidant”.

Gigi Hadid Transforms Into Debbie Harry, Queen of Punk

When the photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott proposed transforming W cover star Gigi Hadid into the eternally cool rock star Debbie Harry, circa 1975, the supermodel did her homework. “I’ve always studied how models made pictures,” said Gigi, who had been staring intently at a mood board covered with photos of Harry from Blondie’s heyday. “It’s always been important to me to make a picture better. I can look at a shot and see where I fit into it, what I can add to the picture. I don’t want to be just another person on the page.” She paused. “I want people to see the new picture with me and one day remember it the way we remember these pictures of Debbie Harry.” So then: Iconic? “Iconic!” Gigi said. “What else is there?”

Gigi Hadid’s Space Odyssey

Hell-bent on reaching for the stars, one of the most famous faces on the planet blasts off.
“My boyfriend’s really into aliens,” Gigi Hadid tells me in a conference room at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida—a hairstylist, a manicurist, and a makeup artist tending to her like blue jays fluttering around a cartoon princess. It’s barely 7 a.m., and she’s running on four hours’ sleep, having flown in from Paris the night before. She’s wearing leather pants and a neon-orange long-sleeved tee emblazoned with lyrics from the latest single by said boyfriend, former One Direction member Zayn Malik. Hadid, 22, is perhaps the most famous model in the world. According to Forbes, she earned $9 million in 2016; she has more than 33 million followers on Instagram; and last year she was named International Model of the Year by the British Fashion Council. Having conquered runways, magazine covers, and print campaigns, Hadid is now designing as well, launching two capsule collections with Tommy Hilfiger and a boot collaboration with Stuart Weitzman.

Guess 2015

Gigi Hadid by David Bellemere
for Guess 2015 Campaign

— – —

Sports Illustrated swimsuit rookie 2014, American model Gigi Hadid follows a frequent development route into a Guess Campaign as the brand’s 2015 face. David Bellemere is behind the lens for what has been an uncontrolled, inferior-quality image dump of the campaign. Multiple images are appearing at random on various websites in the most haphazard execution we’ve seen for a major campaign.Not sure who is responsible here, but for shame.
