Amy Schumer is already high up on our #girlcrush list. But we have officially fallen in love with the comedienne after seeing her Pirelli calendar shoot.

The 34-year-old is stunning as she stars in the 43rd edition of the famous calendar, created by one of the most celebrated American photographers, Annie Leibovitz.

Amy Schumer for the Pirelli calendar 2016



Amy is pictured half-naked sitting on a stool with a cup of coffee.

Talking about shooting the star, Annie said: "I'm a great admirer of comediennes. The Amy Schumer portrait added some fun. It's as if she didn't get the memo saying that she could keep her clothes on."

Annie had taken a different direction with this year's calendar, featuring women of outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment.

Serena Williams for the Pirelli calendar 2016



Other women to be included were tennis player Serena William, Russian model Natalia Vodianova, who is the founder of the charity Naked Heart and blogger Tavi Gevinson, founder of Style Rookie.

The women are all of different ages and backgrounds and have different careers.

"The 2000 Calendar was an exercise in photographing nudes. It was a simple concept," said Annie.

"For 2016, we did something completely different, but it is still simple. It is a classic set of black-and-white portraits made in the studio.

"When Pirelli approached me, they said they wanted to make a departure from the past. They suggested the idea of photographing distinguished women. After we agreed on that, the goal was to be very straightforward. I wanted the pictures to show the women exactly are they are."
