The Pirelli Calendar Gets a Smart New Makeover


Last year, stylist Carine Roitfeld and photographer Steven Meisel captured models like Anna Ewers, Joan Smalls, and Adriana Lima in varying states of undress for the always provocative Pirelli Calendar. For the 2016 edition, the tire company went in a slightly different direction with casting, hiring Annie Leibovitz to shoot 13 women who are changing society today: Yoko Ono, Tavi Gevinson, Serena Williams, Patti Smith, Fran Lebowitz, Amy Schumer, Ava DuVernay, Natalia Vodianova, Agnes Gund, Kathleen Kennedy, Mellody Hobson, Shirin Neshat and Yao Chen. All of whom will be fully clothed.

Here, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the calendar, which will be available in November.
