Hey there, pretty lady! Amy Schumer embraced her inner pinup girl for the sizzling May 2016 issue of Vanity Fair shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

On a cover that heralds the Emmy winner as "America's Kid Sister," Schumer, 34, showcased her curves in a crushed red velvet Calvin Klein Collection bodysuit. Like a true '40s vixen, she also worked voluminous curls, blushed cheeks, cat-eye liner and a coy smile with a seductive pose.

Inside the issue, the photos were a little bit more casual — including one particularly wild snap that features the Inside Amy Schumer star and creator in nothing but a slogan tee with her crotch on fire. (As you can see here, that is not a metaphor.)

The Trainwreck star explained the shot in true cheeky Schumer fashion: "I begged Annie to photograph me with no underwear on in just a T-shirt. 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."
