Kind of like an invitation to Hogwarts, the annual Pirelli calendar comes, without being summoned, to a chosen few. You can’t buy it in stores or order it online; the list of calendar recipients is unknown. This year, those recipients will get 12 pages of supermodels in latex, shot by Steven Meisel, styled by Carine Roitfeld, with Pat McGrath as the lead makeup artist. Embodying this year’s fetish theme are models Sasha Luss, Anna Ewers, Carolyn Murphy, Adriana Lima, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Cameron Russell, Raquel Zimmermann, and Candice Huffine. It’s a calendar first for Hadid (who told the Cut she got into calendar character by singing Beyoncé), Huffine (the calendar’s first-ever plus-size model), and Meisel.
