The Pirelli calendar is the stuff of legend -- one of the most coveted pieces of arty, pin up-inspired photographs featuring some of the most prominent women in the world -- and this year is no different. Shot entirely by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, their most recent offering has been causing quite the buzz, as the this year's subjects have been chosen for their storied resumes rather than sex appeal -- as opposed to past calendars that only had the likes of (topless) supermodels à la Kate Moss and Christy Turlington.

Including the likes of Serena Williams, Amy Schumer, Tavi Gevinson, Patti Smith and Yoko Ono, it's not a stretch to say that this landmark year will become our favorite, feminist-leaning fold-out ever. Peep a few of the final images below.
