Pirelli is doing things a bit differently for its 2016 calendar. Rather than adhere to the racy blueprint of scantily clad young super models, the company has decided to highlight 12 of the world’s most inspiring women, including artists, activists, and athletes.

Earlier this week, Serena Williams announced on Twitter that she would be featured in the upcoming edition, which was shot by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. And now, New York magazine has dropped a behind-the-scenes look at the calendar shoot, which included women like Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Tavi Gevinson.

You can take a look at the sneak peek below. The Pirelli 2016 calendar will be released in November.
