Amy Schumer has put her on twist on the May 2016 issue of Vanity Fair and after seeing the cover photo, you’ll see why.
Amy Schumer’s no pants photograph is literally incendiary: the comedian, in a T-shirt, with her otherwise uncovered crotch ablaze. The only other thing she wears is an expression of utter ease, or possibly, mild panic.
“I begged Annie to photograph me with no underwear on in just a T-shirt,” Schumer says. “I explained to her how important it was to me and she finally agreed. I felt powerful and beautiful. She understood once we shot it. Or maybe she ran to the bathroom to throw up. It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life.” Vanity Fair
“It was very her,” says V.F. fashion and style director Jessica Diehl. She noted the “no coffee, no workee” tee was Schumer’s own: “The whole attitude, the T-shirt, the slogan on the T-shirt—it just felt very real, with everything else being so surreal.”
Now, this isn’t the cover photo by any means, that would be a bit much of a statement, but this picture is featured in the magazine.
“There had to be some sense of humor in the glamorizing, because [the glamorizing] is not the point of her,” she says. “The point of her is not to be a red-carpet star—she does so much more than dress up for premieres or press circuits.
“We’re not telling a fashion story—we don’t have to stick to one look throughout,” she continues. “And she’s so multifaceted that if you put her in one box, you’re really not telling enough of this whole person’s story. Her voice is very zeitgeisty, and ballsy, and feisty, that it didn’t seem she could be boxed into one concept.” Diehl, on Schumer.
