Shakespeare fans will love Pirelli’s calendar for 2020.
The Italian tire brand played off a romantic theme that reimagined Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet.” Photographer Paolo Roversi challenged nine famous women to provide their own take on looks inspired specifically by Juliet’s role in the tragic tale of innocent, star-crossed lovers.

This year’s cast is as star-filled as ever, with the spotlight on actresses and singers from across the globe.
The muses include: British actresses Claire Foy, Emma Watson and Mia Goth; American actresses Kristen Stewart, Yara Shahidi and Indya Moore; Chinese singer Chriss Lee; Spanish singer Rosalia; and Franco-Italian artist Stella Roversi.
“I am still searching for my Juliet and I will be searching all my life. Because Juliet is a dream,” Roversi said of the project, formally titled “Looking for Juliet.”
Roversi told each star to present a version of the protagonist, acting, posing and singing through their own emotion, art and interpretation of the iconic role.
