Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart & More Reimagine Shakespeare’s Juliet for the 2020 Pirelli Calendar

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.

“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.

Pirelli’s 2019 calendar by Scottish photographer Albert Watson featured four distinct storylines, shot in Miami and New York with Gigi Hadid, Alexander Wang and Misty Copeland as cast members. The 2018 calendar by Tim Walker saw a reimagined “Alice in Wonderland” with an all-black cast that included powerhouses like Naomi Campbell, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Lupita Nyong’o.
