Every year the Italian tire company rounds up a bunch of models to pose nude for a calendar in order to, I don’t know, make us want to purchase tires for out automobiles? Not really sure on how the concept of marketing works to be honest. This year they’ve gone in a slightly different directions, eschewing exposed flesh and nubile sex babes, and are featuring woman known for accomplishments beyond their ability to inspire boners. Weird, but there are actually women out there who that describes!
The shift may be because Annie Leibovitz was in charge this year. For the calendar she tapped Amy Schumer, who, ok, still posed nude, Patti Smith, Tavi Gevinson, Serena Williams, Yoko Ono and other bad ass women. Check out a few here and watch a behind the scenes video from Harper’s Bazaar, below.
