Men Men Men
Last night Pirelli unveiled its 2019 calendar in Zurich, at a party in Samsung Hall attended by…a lot of men! Yes, I had to smile when I saw all girls standing at the wall and red carpet to take pictures and almost avoiding the cars, and about five hundred men dressed in a dark suit, staring at a Lamborghini or enjoying drinks and networking (many representatives of the car industry regularly meet at this event). This field is for sure still men-dominated.
The Pirelli Naked Girls
Traditionally, the Pirelli calendar has featured very sensual pictures of half naked or fully naked women. I must confess: I adore many of them and find them iconic. Most are elegant or extravagant, but rarely vulgar or diminishing.
In the age of #metoo and political correct media, I guess the crew behind the calendar understood that going again for very sexy content can be risky. They chose the theme “dreaming” and featured 4 stories of 4 different women – together with a partner or friend. In my opinion, the final images are beautiful. But of course sensuality is still there, and wonderful bodies are shown too.
