Real women have curves. Real women have flaws. Unfortunately, with all the magazine Photoshop jobs and Instagram filters, we sometimes forget that. Leave it to comedienne Amy Schumer to remind us how awesome a real woman looks.
Amy posted a topless photo of herself today while shooting with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you Annie Leibovitz!,” she captioned the image of herself in her underwear, sipping coffee. The un-retouched photo is from the upcoming Pirelli Calendar.
The calendar usually features celebrities and models in the nude but this year, accomplished girl bosses like Ava DuVernay, Fran Lebowitz, Patti Smith and Serena Williams will be replacing the waifs. “I made the suggestion that they do women performance artists or women comedians, almost a take-off. I just thought of women I admired,” said Leibovitz. “It became a very strong set of very simple portraits [...] No one was supposed to look like they tried in these pictures.”
Trying or not, Amy is killing it with her confidence.
