As reported by People Style Watach, this year’s Pirelli calendar showcased the bare bodies of many Hollywood superstars. Its previous versions comprised a catalog of Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, and Cindy Crawford among the array of supermodels who have made it big in the industry. For next year’s calendar, Pirelli takes on Amy Schumer, the sarcastic comedian who has stood up for equal female rights in society.
For the 2016 Pirelli calendar issue, Annie Leibovitz is set to shoot the unusual types of women that they normally would showcase on the issue such as Serena Williams, Patti Smith, Natalie Vodianova, Fran Lebowitz, Tavi Gevinson, Ava DuVernay, Agnes Gund, Shirin Neshat, Yao Chen, Kathleen Kennedy, Mellody Hobson, and Yoko Ono.
During an interview, Leibovitz shared her thoughts on Schumer’s involvement in the upcoming Pirelli issue and said, “I’m a great admirer of comediennes. The Amy Schumer portrait added some fun. It’s as if she didn’t get the memo saying that she should keep her clothes on.”
In other news, Vulture reported that the women who were to be featured in 2016’s issue were those that emanated from the fields of sports, entertainment and philanthropy – a deviation from their usual array of bare supermodels who have made it big in the fashion industry.
When asked about her involvement in the calendar issue, Amy Schumer stated, “I felt like it looked like me.” In fact, the famous comedian even shared her a photo of herself with barely any clothes on in her Instagram account.
