Italian photographer Paolo Roversi's 2020 Pirelli calendar "Looking for Juliet" was revealed today at Verona's Teatro Filarmonico in Italy.

Drawing inspiration from Shakespeare's timeless drama, Roversi has tapped into the "Juliet that exists in every woman" with Claire Foy, Mia Goth, Chris Lee, Indya Moore, Rosalía, Stella Roversi, Yara Shahidi, Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson as the protagonists of this 47th edition of the calendar.

The photo shoot took place in May and an 18-minute film was made using the photography. Roversi plays himself as a film director interviewing candidates for the role of Juliet.

"I was looking for a pure soul, someone full of innocence that combined strength, beauty, tenderness and courage," Roversi said.

"I found this in the glimmer of an eye, in the gestures and words of Emma and Yara, Indya and Mia and in the smiles and tears of Kristen and Claire ... in the voices and chants of Chris and Rosalía. In Stella we have the innocence. There's a Juliet in every woman," he said.
