Gigi Hadid and Misty Copeland revealed as stars of Pirelli 2019 calendar

The super stylish shots, which tell the tale of four women's aspirations and their determination to reach their goals, also stars Julia Garner and Laetitia Casta.

American superstar Gigi's snaps are flawless. A close up shows the 23-year-old gazing into a fish bowl, light streaming on to her face.

In another she lounges on a sofa in a sexy negligee and stripy robe.

Ballet dancer Misty, 36, showcases her powerful legs as she stands on one foot in her pumps.

A more relaxed shot sees her lying weightless in water while wearing a white swimsuit.

The 2019 edition of the legendary calendar has been shot by Scottish photographer Albert Watson, 76.

In a departure from the overly sexualised shoots of years gone by, the current edition opts for a more sophisticated and empowering tone.

Addressing the arrival of the new calendar hot on the heels of the Me Too movement, Watson told The Guardian: "It seemed to me the wrong time to be getting a bunch of supermodels to a beach and have them take their tops off. So I moved the nudity away from a Playboy pin-up. It was like that for many years, and done with good taste and by good photographers, and I have no problem with it.

“[My] idea was always that women were trying to do something with their life. I much preferred that to women taking their tops off.”

The calendar's release come just days after Gigi stunned on the catwalk for the annual Victoria's Secret Show, another legendary event in the fashion calendar.
