2016 Pirelli Calendar Shifts To Classy Portraits of Iconic Women, Shot by Annie Leibovitz
Pirelli calendars have always been about sexy, nude girls. But we’re now finding out that the 2016 calendar will be a lot classier, featuring portraits of iconic women in recent history. Shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the 2016 Pirelli calendar will feature celebrated personalities such as Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Serena Williams, Fran Lebowitz, Amy Schumer, Tavi Gevinson, Ava DuVernay, Natalia Vodianova, Agnes Gund, Kathleen Kennedy, Mellody Hobson, Shirin Neshat, and Yao Chen.
The switch to classy portraits of history-changing women is a big leap in a different direction. What happens in 2017 is anybody’s guess, and we’ll need to wait until November 30 to see what the 2016 Pirelli calendar will look like, when it unveils in London.
