The annual Pirelli calendar has landed and for 2016, rather than using supermodels as they have done in previous years, the Italian tyre company chose to feature women who are titans of entertainment, sports, comedy and business.
The 43rd edition features woman of all ages, with the black and white portraits shot by Annie Leibovitz.
However, one stands out in particular – being actress and comedian Amy Schumer as December’s model, holding a Starbucks cup and looking unfazed in nothing but heels and a pair of panties.
Annie told Elle that she came up with the idea for Amy’s shot at the last minute, proposing on the spot that she pose nude.
“She got the whole concept completely,” said Annie. “She’s so bright. She was willing to play that role. I was worried for her, I said ‘Are you self-conscious?’
Amy said, ‘Are you kidding? I love my body.'”
