Amy Schumer poses naked for new Pirelli calendar celebrating 'distinguished women'

Leibovitz said Pirelli gave her the freedom she needed to pursue a different type of calendar.

While Ms. Williams' and Ms. Schumers' portraits show some skin that might catch more viewers' attention-as well as convey more of each woman's respective personalities-the simpler shots of Ms. Smith and Ms. Chen are less evocative.

Schumer posted her portrait to Twitter with the caption: "Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman".

"I felt I looked more attractive than I've ever felt in my life, and I felt like it looked like me", Schumer said in the video.

President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art joined in, alongside writer Fran Lebowitz; President of Ariel Investments, Mellody Hobson; director Ava DuVernay; blogger Tavi Gevinson; Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat; John Lennon's ex-wife Yoko Ono; and singer Patti Smith.

From artists to athletes, the 2016 Pirelli Calendar is completely groundbreaking - and we're so excited that the stunning shots have finally been revealed!

In the past, the Pirelli calendar has been a prime outlet for the world's supermodels.

Amy Schumer poses for the 2016 edition of the Pirelli Calendar. "The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward", Amy Leibovitz said of the 2016 shoot. Instead of featuring scantily clad models, the recently released anthology focuses on 13 women "of outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment". "It was a simple concept", Leibovitz explained.

In a Vogue story, Leibovitz said: "Perhaps clothed women are going to have a moment". She added that it was a classic set of black-and-white portraits that had been made in the studio. 

Serena Williams, a legend in the making was in the news recently for her photoshoot earlier.
