The 2016 Pirelli Calendar has been causing quite a buzz, as they have taken another route and covered up the women and the boobies, with the help of renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz. It’s a fairly simple concept to shoot women half naked and directing them to stare sensually into the lens, but Annie had a different vision for the 2016 Pirelli Calendar, as she decided to shoot notable women who have made a significant impact in their respected fields from entertainment, sports, art, business, and so on.

The change in this year’s direction strays away from just sex, and more towards empowerment and strength, and each talent is featured in black and white, the usual Annie Leibovitz style. In her words she shared, “The whole idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures, and be very straightforward, and show these women exactly who they are.”
The 2016 Pirelli Calendar will include, Fran Lebowitz, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Natalia Vodianova, Serena Williams, Amy Schumer and other leading ladies.
