Whoopi Goldberg had this to say in a video message she shared about the Pirelli calendar:
“Most of the time, people don’t realize that people of color come in all colors: light, dark, kinda middle, kinda muddy, bright. So to see it all arrayed, [this project] surpassed all that: it became about Alice in Wonderland.”
“[Images like this] should’ve been shown of [black people] a long time ago,” Combs said during an onstage conversation with Tim Blanks at the press conference. “It’s just beautiful that you’re starting to see images like that of us now. I think Pirelli was smart enough to see the future. This is the future: black excellence.”
