Alexander Wang Stars in the 2019 Pirelli Calendar With Gigi Hadid


It’s that time of year again. Well, if you pay close attention to the fashion calendar that is.

Milan-based tyre company Pirelli have just announced the cast and concept of their 2019 calendar shot by British-born photographer Albert Watson.

The calendar tells the tales of four women ‘who are playing a movie character role’ and stars the likes of dancers Misty Copeland, Sergei Polunin, model Gigi Hadid and fashion designer Alexander Wang.

Working with Watson – who has shot the likes of Steve Jobs and Alfred Hitchcock and worked for beauty brands including Chanel and Prada – Hadid commands attention in several behind-the-scenes images from the shoot.

Dressed in a plunging champagne-coloured dress in one shot, the 23-year-old model sits on the window sill of an empty studio with the NYC skyline behind her.


In another photograph, the model lies on her stomach on a rug in front of Watson, before sitting alongside Wang and starring into the distance of a darkly-lit living room.


According to a press release from Pirelli, Gigi plays the role of a ‘wealthy and successful woman’ who ‘appears to have it all but there is sadness amongst her life’. Meanwhile, Wang is her ‘best friend and confidant’.
