Joburg model, lawyer and ac­tivist Thando Hopa is one of the stars of the leg­endary Pirelli Cal­en­dar’s 2018 edition, pho­tographed by iconic Vogue pho­tog­ra­pher, Tim Walker. The 28-year-old fea­tures along­side in­ter­na­tional leg­ends such as Whoopi Gold­berg, Lupita Ny­ong’o and Sean “Diddy” Combs in an all-black Pirelli cal­en­dar, in­spired by John Ten­niel’s orig­i­nal il­lus­tra­tions for Alice in Won­der­land. Hopa, who plays the role of the Princess of Hearts, is the first black South African model to fea­ture in the pres­ti­gious cal­en­dar. The only other South African was Ge­orgina Grenville in 1998.
