For the calendar's 43rd year, Leibovitz revealed that she wanted to take a different approach. "This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure," she said in a statement. "The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward."

"I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits." she said. "I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio."
