The 2007 edition of the Pirelli Calendar was presented last night at a gala affair in Battersea Evolution Park in London, England.

The models of this edition are actresses Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts and newcomer Lou Doillon. They were photographed in California by the Dutchmen Inez Van Lamsweerde and

Vinoodh Matadin.

The unique 2007 calendar marks a turning point in its history: The glamour that characterized past editions is absent. There has been a return to the simplicity of the film sets, stories and photography of the early sixties (according to Pirelli, reminiscent of the films of Pier Paolo Pasolini and Michelangelo Antonioni), plus an emphasis on the personality of the person.

"We are in a room with just a bed and sheet. We wanted to make it as personal and intimate as possible, as if we were shooting pictures with friends," says Inez.
