2018 Pirelli Calendar features an all-Black cast for retelling of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ [PHOTOS]

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

Emmy winning drag superstar RuPaul Charles is just one of the many famous faces attached to the new 2018 Pirelli Calendar. Images surfaced over the weekend featuring the “Drag Race” star as the demanding Queen of Hearts in this all-Black retelling of the classic children’s book, Alice in Wonderland.

The Pirelli Calendar is one of the entertainment world’s most sought after items.  According to CNN, it is not sold to the public and is gifted to celebrities and an elite group of industry insiders only. It was created years ago to display the beauty of women but has taken a more socially conscious approach to its calendar and photos in recent years.

“Now we have Alice looking different. Alice can be anyone. It’s an essence… you don’t have to be confined. Focus on what it represents. It’s important for cultural development,” said the calendar’s photographer Tim Walker.

In addition to Charles, the calendar also features some pretty magical and whimsical images of Oscar winners Whoopi Goldberg and Lupita Nyong’o, supermodel Naomi Cambell, hip hop icon Sean “Diddy” Combs, acclaimed model and actor Djimon Hounsou and rap sensation Lil Yachty + a cadre of high fashion models from around the motherland. British Vogue editor Edward Enninful is also assisting Walker with the fabulous fashion spread.
