The 2016 Pirelli Calendar Features A Topless Amy Schumer And Serena Williams

Normally the Pirelli calendar is filled with models of Victoria’s Secret stature, but not this year. They are straying away from the super model type look, and going for the empowering women look this year. This is a refreshing idea and I feel like people are very okay with this concept.

The calendar will include: Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Serena Williams, Fran Lebowitz, Amy Schumer, Tavi Gevinson, Ava DuVernay, Natalia Vodianova, Agnes Gund, Kathleen Kennedy, Mellody Hobson, Shirin Neshat and Yao Chen.

Famed photographer Anne Leiboveitz said this about the shoot:

I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits. I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.
