Gigi Hadid, Halima Aden, Joan Smalls and More Star in CR Fashion Book’s (First-Ever) Calendar for 2018

If you were an avid reader of Carine Roitfeld’s Vogue Paris, you surely remember the now-iconic, highly collectible calendars the team produced to coincide with the magazine’s year-end double holiday issue. We saw Karen Elson experimenting with bondage for 2007, Isbabeli Fontana and Lara Stone covered in creative illustrations for 2008 and witnessed Natasha Poly, Iselin Steiro and Raquel Zimmermann bare all at the famous Le Lido cabaret and burlesque club in Paris for 2010’s offering. Oh, the memories!

Roitfeld is now giving us major flashbacks by producing her first-ever calendar for her namesake CR Fashion Book, entitled “CR Girls 2018 with Technogym.” Roitfeld enlisted both supermodels and faces-of-the-moment to help celebrate the new year, including Gigi Hadid, Grace Elizabeth, Joan Smalls, Hailey Clauson, Paris Jackson, Hoyeon Jung, Binx Walton, Eniko Mihalik, Hannah Ferguson, Joelle Lombardi, Danielle Herrington, Halima Aden and Candice Swanepoel.

“Throughout my career, I have championed diversity of both race and body type. This casting includes both iconic supermodels and fresh faces in a modern representation of beauty and body. It’s about the multiplicity of woman in the year 2018,” said Roitfeld.

Shot by photographer Steven Klein, the girls come together to embody the ultimate CR woman in their respective images, vamping it up and working the lens while working up a sweat on some Technogym equipment. All proceeds from the calendar benefit the Special Olympics. Roitfeld’s inspiration for the project and teaming up with the Special Olympics came from her personal trainer who is visually impaired. “I am in awe of any person who devotes their mind and body to athletics, but especially those with disabilities. This is the definition of courage. I am pleased the proceeds of this calendar support the Special Olympics—an organization I greatly respect—and to promote the visibility of its efforts,” said Roitfeld.
