Just days after welcoming a more diverse era for British Vogue with his debut cover, editor-in-chief Edward Enninful unveils this year’s Pirelli calendar. Shot by legendary fashion photographer Tim Walker and directed by Enninful, the all-black cast tells the story of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’. The likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell , upcoming British model Adwoa Aboah and RuPaul play the novel’s most cherished characters and the 2018 edition signifies a long-awaited shift in the fashion industry. “The message is so big, and the timing could not be more perfect,” Naomi Campbell told The Guardian . “It’s great to see these beautiful girls get this opportunity. I just don’t want it to be a trend, and I think we all feel that way.” In recent years, the Pirelli calendar has strived to celebrate diversity with last year’s issue seeing photographer Annie Leibovitz emphasise women’s accomplishments, not their looks. Tim Walker told British Vogue : “I think it’s exciting, it’s a celebration of black beauty but it could be any skin colour to me. It’s in tune with what feels right for now.” Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day. For Twitter updates, follow @YahooStyleUK .

Naomi Campbell is turning heads more than ever before as she continues to strut and work the hell out of every single designer show she walks on. Now evidently Campbell is still one of the most requested individuals for designer shows as the melanin beauty shares the catwalk with this generation’s favoured models. Naomi Campbell was first spotted by Beth Boldt whilst window shopping in London.
Fashion and Politics have one thing in common and that’s inspiring to create change, one of the main issues being the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Apart from giving me my first insight into the industry, Katharine Hamnett gave Photographer Juergen Teller his first job and Kate Moss her commercial break into the modelling industry including veterans Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall and Mila Jojovich have all graced the editorial campaigns and catwalk for the iconic British Designer.
Especially when the models in question are Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer – and they’ve joined forces to star in a new campaign for brand-of-the-moment Balmain. The legendary trio has teamed up to star in Olivier Rousteing’s spring/summer ’16 snapshots, some which even star the French fashion house’s creative director himself. Shot by Steven Klein, the photos show that each of the three women have only got better with age.
