It may only be August, but the 2017 Pirelli calendar is coming.

This year, the Italian tire brand recruited photographer Peter Lindbergh, who has previously contributed to the 1996 and 2002 editions, to shoot 15 of Hollywood’s hottest stars. Although the calendar was once known for its barely-dressed models in exotic locations, previews of Lindbergh’s work in the 44th calendar for the brand show a diverse group of women looking more natural and graceful – but no less sexy.

The 2017 calendar stars 15 of Hollywood’s hottest stars:

Charlotte Rampling
Uma Thurman
Nicole Kidman
Lea Seydoux
Alicia Vikander
Kate Winslet
Julianne Moore
Robin Wright
Lupita Nyong’o
Rooney Mara
Jessica Chastain
Anastacia Ignatova
Penélope Cruz
Helen Mirren
Zhang Ziyi
