Pirelli’s 2016 calendar is out! Photographer Annie Leibovitz was responsible for delivering the photos this year and instead of going for nude models, Leibovitz decided to give clothes a chance. This is why her photograph series for the calendar includes thirteen women, only one of which is nearly nude – specifically, Amy Schumer. The idea of the calendar itself was to showcase women of all fields and revere them for their power and accomplishments. The series also includes Serena Williams, Natalia Vodianova and Yoko Ono as models.
Leibovitz says she was more than happy to work with Schumer, as she admits the actress helped her capture a truly genuine moment.
To quote her:
“It was as if she didn’t get the memo, but if you look at her, that was a true moment; she actually picked up the cup of coffee and started drinking it. That was her coffee, and I said, ‘That’s it!'”
Schumer expressed her enthusiasm about the photograph as well, saying that she “has never looked more beautiful and natural.” She later uploaded the photo to Twitter, saying, “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you @annieleibovitz.”
