Every year the tire company Pirelli puts out a limited edition calendar with a bunch of hot models shot by a famous photographer and it’s a thing. But this year they decided to shoot non-models, and everyone is commending them but also saying what took you so long?
This year’s calendar girls are Tavi Gevinson, Serena Williams, Amy Schumer, Yoko Ono, Fran Lebowitz, Patti Smith, Natalia Vodianova, Kathleen Kennedy, Yao Chen, Mellody Hobson, Ava DuVernay, Agnes Gund, Shirin Neshat. They come from all different walks of life and do all different things. Plus some of them are old. Mainly they do things besides pose for photos and be skinny.
Annie Leibowitz shot this year’s calendar, which was an obvious choice. She was the one to shoot Caitlyn for Vanity Fair and basically every other cover you know. Even though we saw Amy Schumer nude in “Trainwreck” a lot, who’s to say we don’t need more? Now we get more. So go Pirelli and go feminism.
