EMMA WATSON / PIRELLI CALENDAR 2020
'LOOKING FOR JULIET'
'As one of the fashion world’s pre-eminent photographers, Paolo Roversi has had plenty of time to ponder the nature of beauty. In his shoot for the 2020 Pirelli Calendar he’s sought to bring alive other elusive concepts too – femininity, tenderness and, most of all, love.
'It’s these characteristics of a “feminine ideal” that he thinks are embodied in the character of Juliet from Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet. And in “Looking for Juliet” he has cast eight actresses and models to get closer to the essence of Juliet in the 21st century.
'The line up features Emma Watson, Yara Shahidi, Indya Moore, Rosalia, Claire Foy, Chris Lee, Kristen Stewart and Mia Goth.'
