We must tip the cap to the folks at Pirelli for their 2016 calendar. Say Pirelli Calendar to most petrol heads and motor boffs and the likely word associations are: boobs, lingerie and a smattering of spandex. Not so for 2016, which sees Pirelli celebrate women of importance, less get ya boobs out and more get your sizeable brains out. Annie Leibovitz subjects include, Amy Schumer, Patti Smith, Yao Chen and Serena Williams. The images are stunning, but more than that they stand tall against the tidal wave of images that portray women as purely aesthetic forms with tiny waists, hollow cheeks and no opinions of significance. So a tip of the cap... But still a long way to go.
