RuPaul is the Queen of Hearts in an Alice in Wonderland-themed calendar for Pirelli.
Ruling over a celebrity cast of subjects, Mama Ru is one of several black stars photographed for the exclusive editorial calendar.
It’s no wonder RuPaul was convinced to get into drag.
Naomi Campbell and Puff Daddy are the ‘royal beheaders’, while Whoopi Goldberg is the Duchess.
Lupita N’yongo is the Dormouse, albino lawyer and model Thando Hopa plays the Princess of Hearts, while Australian supermodel Duckie Thot is Alice.
The pictures were taken by Tim Walker, and styled by Edward Enninful – the gay black editor of British Vogue.
‘Inclusivity is more part of the conversation than it has ever been before, but it goes far beyond black and white,’ Enninful said, according to the New York Times.
‘It is about all creeds, all colors, all sizes and people just living their truths. A lot of this is about digital giving people voices, and a new generation who refuse to compromise and want answers to the questions that matter to them.
‘Given the state of the world we live in, sometimes I think we all feel like we’ve fallen down the rabbit hole.
‘For me, a retelling of Alice for the modern world was a perfect project, particularly once the cast fell into place.’
The Pirelli calendar, first published by the Italian tire company of the same name in 1964, used to be a soft-core ode to scantily clad women.
Never sold on the open market, it is a collector’s item sent to celebrities, clients and chief executives.
