Amy Schumer Posed Nude (With Other Celebrities) In A Powerful Calendar Shoot.

Each year since 1964, Italian tire company Pirelli has released a calendar of the world's most beautiful women, handing out copies to approximately 20,000 VIPs including musicians, celebrities, and powerful influencers. On the whole, the calendars have been provocative, often featuring women in various states of undress in highly sexual poses.

This year, that changed.

In 2016, photographer Annie Leibovitz took the Pirelli calendar in a different direction, selecting women who are known for their achievements rather than their appearance. Ironically, each of the portraits is incredibly beautiful -- but it's refreshing to see that beauty isn't the only factor at play. See the 13 portraits below.
