Amy Schumer and Serena Williams, both victims of body shaming and online trolls, posed nude for Pirelli’s 2016 Calendar.

Schumer shared her photo on Twitter with the caption:

“Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman.”

The Pirelli calendar, which typically includes photos of models, started in 1964 and is published annually. It is not for sale and will be gifted to 20,000 “VIPs, musicians, politicians, and royalty.”

Discussing the photoshoot, Schumer said she felt she “looked more beautiful than I’ve ever felt in my life, and I felt like it looked like me.” Photographer Annie Leibovitz said she wanted to feature 12 “strong but natural” trailblazing women.

“I wanted the pictures to show the women exactly as they are, with no pretense,” Leibovitz said.

Fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson and Chinese actress Yao Chen will also be featured in the calendar, according to the BBC.
