Hopa graces famous Pirelli’s
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.
