patti smith, tavi gevinson and yoko ono join serena williams in the pirelli calendar
Annie Leibovitz is shooting “a calendar for our time” featuring women whose achievements are more important than how they look in a bikini.
The Pirelli Calendar was never your average 12 month planner. Featuring the most beautiful models, actors and society women from around the world, shot by the most famous photographers of their time, the exclusive calendar is sent out to a select number of clients and celebrities only. However, next year's edition look set to be more incredible than ever before.
For 2016, photographer Annie Leibovitz's lens is directed not just at women with enviable beach bodies, but incredible minds, creative talents and world-beating athletic forms. Joining tennis champion and Queen of Everything Serena Williams will be godmother of punk Patti Smith, teen media empire Tavi Gevinson, artist Yoko Ono and, if flashes of a teaser video are to be believed, film director Ava DuVernay and legendary writer Fran Lebowitz. We can't wait to see it! Well, images of it online, that is. #calendargoals.
