Get your first, behind-the-scenes look at next year’s Romeo & Juliet inspired edition, as shot by legendary photographer Paolo Roversi

We’re not entirely sure how it’s happened so fast, but we’re already in August – meaning 2020 is just around the corner. And what does a new year bring? A new Pirelli calendar, obvs.  

With legendary photographer Paolo Roversi at the helm this time around, the calendar’s theme centres around Shakespeare’s Juliet, as the likes of Indya Moore, Mia Goth, Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart, Rosalia, Yara Shahidi and Chris Lee step into the role of the star-crossed lover.

In anticipation of the calendar’s launch, Pirelli now releases a series of behind-the-scenes photographs of next year’s stars at work. With Stewart shown lying across a table and Rosalia standing in front of a number of glowing church candles, Roversi is seen directing them how to pose and capturing their individual interpretations of who Juliet actually is. Though, as the photographer himself puts it: “I am still searching for my Juliet and I will be searching all of my life. Because Juliet is a dream.” 

Over the course of the last few years we’ve seen Albert Watson celebrate the women chasing their dreams as part of a largely monochrome edition of the calendar, Tim Walker paint a portrait of black excellence featuring Naomi Campbell, RuPaul, and Puff Daddy, and Peter Lindbergh release a completely unretouched iteration in 2017. Stay tuned to see exactly what the final 2020 version looks like.
