The 2018 Pirelli Calendar is EVERYTHING! Go inside to peep the gorgeous shots of Lupita Nyong’o, Diddy, Naomi Campbell, Whoopi Goldberg and more serving up Alice & Wonderland feels inside…

The Pirelli calendar just keeps getting better and better. And for 2018, it’s going to epic levels of melanin love.

The highly anticipated calendar is taking a trip down the rabbit hole into the magical world of Alice & Wonderland. Shot by British fashion photographer Tim Walker, several YBF celebs work their magic as characters from Lewis Carroll’s fantasy novel “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” styled by British VOGUE editor Edward Enninful.

The calendar was known for showcasing scantily clad supermodels, but it has evolved quite a bit in the last few years. (2016's calendar featured Serena Williams and Ava DuVernay).

It features an all-black ensemble of celebrities, including Lupita Nyong’o, Diddy, Naomi Campbell, Whoopi Goldberg, Djimon Hounsou, RuPaul, Duckie Thot, Lil Yachty, Adut Akech, Adwoa Aboah, Alpha Dia, Sasha Lane, Slick Woods, Thando Hopa Wilson Oryema and Zoe Bedeaux.

This year’s approach is all about inclusiveness and “an unapologetic expression of black pride.” And we’re here for all it.

“I moved mountains to be a part of this,” Diddy told the NY Times. “It is a chance to push social consciousness and break down barriers. For so many years, something like this would not have happened in the fashion world, so it feels like being part of history and playing an active role. I want to lead by example.”

Love it.
