Everyone loved Amy Schumer's topless Pirelli calendar photo by Annie Leibovitz

Yesterday Pirelli unveiled its 2016 calendar, shot by Annie Leibovitz.

Instead of mostly-nude supermodels, the calendar features a diverse group of women of all ages from the worlds of sport, culture and entertainment, including artist Yoko Ono, tennis player Serena Williams, singer Patti Smith, film producer Kathleen Kennedy, actress Yao Chen and comedian Amy Schumer.

Schumer and Williams are the only two women to feature in their underwear.

Yesterday, Schumer tweeted her picture with the words "Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman".

In a Pirelli promo video, Schumer said: "I felt I looked more beautiful than I've ever felt in my life, and I felt like it looked like me."

The reaction to Schumer's photo, and the others, was overwhelmingly positive.
