The Pirelli Calendar has become a collector's item in the fashion world in the past, featuring top models and actresses in some NSFW getups. Last year, Steven Meisel and Carine Roitfield shot Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, and for the first time, a plus-size model Candace Huffine in latex lingerie, leaving very little to the imagination.

This time around, "The Cal" as they call it, focuses a spotlight on women's success and accomplishments, not just their bodies. Famed fashion photog Annie Leibovitz shot 12 female artists, filmmakers, comediennes and athletes who are all the strongest in their field. Amy Schumer is (of course?) naked while Serena Williams shows off her insane strength and Tavi Gevinson becomes the youngest to pose for the project. Yoko Ono graces a month, as does Patti Smith and Ava DuVernay.

This calendar is definitely one for the books, and we can bet it might be auctioned off for more than its highest bid ever at $2,000. Unfortunately, The Cal is off limits for the public, but check out a few sneak pics over at Elle.com.
