Pirelli is getting real...women.

The Italian tire company hired Annie Leibovitz to photograph its annual calendar, which usually features nude models, but for 2016 is filled with "13 women of outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment," nearly all of them fully dressed.

The exceptions are comedian Amy Schumer and tennis champ Serena Williams, who are photographed in underwear bottoms.

The calendar unveiled Monday also includes portraits of singer Patti Smith, artist Yoko Ono, film mogul Kathleen Kennedy, director Ava DuVernay and others who have achieved great success.

Leibovitz said Pirelli gave her the freedom she needed to pursue a different type of calendar.

"I still can't believe the women who agreed to do it did it," Leibovitz said.
