Serena Williams and comedian Amy Schumer stripped down for the anticipated 2016 Pirelli calendar, a 12-month spread that is believe it or not, much more reserved than past years.

Known for featuring supermodels and their perceived killer bods, Pirelli took a different angle this year and featured people based on their achievements, not their sex appeal.

Shot in black and white by world renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz, each subject poses in a way that perfectly depicts what we know them for.

Serena, clad in a pair of black undies, shows off her muscular physique for the month of April by standing like an Egyptian sculpture, while Schumer, appears to be a little more comical in her pose; sitting in a chair slumped over while holding what appears to be a cup of coffee for the month of December.

“I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits,” Leibovitz said in a press release back in September. ” I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.”

Other features include Patti Smith, Yao Chen, Tavi Gevinson and 65-year-old author, Fran Lebow.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
