After announcing the cast earlier this year, the Pirelli 2023 Calendar has been released, marking the first time since 2015 that the iconic project has been dedicated to models. The 49th edition of the project includes images taken by Australian photographer Emma Summerton and features 14 of the industry’s most prominent stars.

Named Love Letters to the Muse, models Karlie Kloss, Adut Akech, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Cara Delevingne participate in the calendar with unique monikers like The Writer or The Sprite. In addition, Sasha Pivovarova, Guinevere van Seenus, Ashley Graham, Lauren Wasser, Kaya Wilkins, Adwoa Aboah, Precious Lee, Lila Moss, and He Cong are a part of the cast.
During the months of June and July 2022, Summerton captured photographs on location in New York City and London. It should be noted that this is the first time beauties such as Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Lila Moss, and Adut Akech have posed for the famous calendar.
“I work in fashion, I love working with models, but I love a bigger conversation with the models I’m working with about who they are, what they do, what their life is about,” photographer Emma Summerton shares. “I think it opens up a different kind of collaboration, which creates a different, stronger image in my mind.”
Amanda Harlech was in charge of the shoot’s styling, and Viki Rutsch was the one who designed the set. Eugene Souleiman worked on the cast’s hairstyles, and Hiromi Ueda was in charge of the makeup. You can see the 2023 Pirelli Calendar photos below as well as behind-the-scenes images.
