Pirelli Calendar 2016 by Annie Leibovitz

Blast, it is 2015 and Pirelli has followed the simple rule that sex does not sell anymore. Still inspired by women, Pirelli asked Annie Leibovitz to come up with a stories of the world’s most influential women in beautiful black-and-white portraits. In total, the roll call includes 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 result is nothing short of stunning and while the calendar won’t be for sale – it’s strictly given to an exclusive group of 20,000 “V.I.P.’s, musicians, politicians and royalty” – you can check out the shoot in all of its classic glory above.
