The Pirelli calendar brings us breathtaking fashion imagery each year – in the past we’ve seen Annie Leibovitz photographing women with and without clothing and Peter Lindbergh capturing A-list actresses – and the 2018 publication is no exception. Photographer Tim Walker has captured an all-black cast of icons, including RuPaul, Naomi Campbell, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Whoopi Goldberg, and Lupita Nyong’o, among others, in a colorful Alice in Wonderland – inspired shoot.

The calendar’s images from Walker won’t be visible for another several months, but behind the scenes photos from Alessandro Scotti are currently circulating the internet via Pirelli’s site.

Edward Enninful, the newly minted Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue, styled the shoot. You can watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the production below:
