There’s Adele at the piano, eyes closed, deep in thought. And Caitlyn Jenner off the telly, in an outtake from her Vanity Fair shoot. And Taylor Swift, in black, by a bush. And businesswoman Wendy Deng taking a (probably rare) moment off. And Aung San Suu Kyi, beautifully dignified as ever. And ballet dancer Misty Copeland (pictured) en point. And… Has anyone ever turned Annie Leibovitz down? At the press launch, the starriest of photographers to the stars claimed still to have Angela Merkel in her sights. Here’s betting the chancellor will appear as this show of portraits of influential women, commissioned by UBS for its art collection, tours the world over the next 12 months, growing as it goes.
