Joan Smalls stars with Gigi Hadid in new calendar benefiting the Special Olympics

CR Fashion Book is getting physical for their inaugural calendar. Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid, Paris Jackson and more show off some of their best high-fashion workout moves inside of the spread. The photos from the CR Girls 2018 with Technogym calendar were shot by famed photographer Steven Klein under the creative direction of the Style Council. The models channeled Studio 54 with their workout-themed shoot. Each calendar girl was chosen for her unique style, personality and iconic look.

CR Fashion Book’s creator, Carine Roitfeld’s goal was to create a calendar that celebrates diverse beauty and strong, healthy bodies. “Throughout my career, I have championed diversity of both race and body type,” she said in a statement.

“This casting includes both iconic supermodels and fresh faces in a modern representation of beauty and body," Carine continued. “It’s about the multiplicity of woman in the year 2018.” All proceeds from the calendar, which is available on crfashionBook.com for $200, will benefit the Special Olympics.

Carine’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,” she said. CR Fashion Book partnered with Technogym — the leading premium company in fitness and wellness — for the calendar. Technogym has been official supplier for the last six Olympic Games.
