Pirelli’s NSFW Calendar Is Getting A New Look Thanks To Amy Schumer, Serena Williams, & More! Take A BTS Look!

Pirelli is going a new direction with their 2016 calendar!

Who knew a calendar could be so exciting?

Well, Pirelli‘s yearly edition is always highly-anticipated, mostly for its risqu├â┬⌐ and super sexy nature!

And it almost always features the most in demand models, who are usually just sporting lingerie.

Not this year though!

Amy Schumer, Serena Williams, Yoko Ono, Tavi Gevinson, Patti Smith, Fran Lebowitz, Ava DuVernay, Natalia Vodianova, Agnes Gund, Kathleen Kennedy, Mellody Hobson, Shirin Neshat, and Yao Chen will all be starring in the chicly styled 2016 calendar.

Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the famed photographer revealed:

“I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits. I thought that the women should look strong but natural, and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.”

We’re feeling this new look! Of course, we’ve only gotten a peek at BTS pictures, like the one (above) of Amy!

The whole calendar won’t be unveiled until November 30, so there’s still some time to wait!

Though Patti did share:

“I’ve seen a few of the photographs and they’re striking. I have no idea what the average recipient would [think], but I think that they should appreciate a bold move. We’ll see.”

It is a calendar done by an Italian tire company, after all!

Can’t wait!
